Looks amazing. Every aspect looks good and the lighting is awsome.

How long did it take to render that beast?

That looks great!  The detail you modeled and textured in really adds to the overall model.
One thing that really stands out to me is the very white section on the bottom left.  It seems a bit too bright to me, with a very prominent lack of any texturing or wear and tear that the rest of the model has.  It's a bit like those old beat up cars I see with shining new rims.  This is the same with the front panels.  There's no wear and tear, just basic textures.  Other than that it's looking really nice though.  Keep it up.

Excellent attention to detail, and as the hiho has mentioned, that bit looks really light
Great use of lights, just one question, are the windows just textures, or is there something inside the ship

thanks for the comments guys! I'll fix the white area, i'll add some weathering to it. also, i have fixed the panels on the front section (someone on a other forum noticed that they aren't textured).

the windows are textured. someone suggested me that i make less windows, so i am going to delete a few. the model took a couple of weeks (actually a couple of months, but with pauses) to build and about 1 or 2 hours to render. it isn't even that much high-poly. in anim8or, i can rotate it freely without delays or jaggy movements. most of the ship that  you see are big faces that are textured, and when lighted well it looks good.you can download it so, see for yourself!

That came out really well! 

I really like just about everything to do with this model.  How long did it take to make?

Been wondering what became of you after you had popped into our old AnimAnon site (no longer active).

edit: i indeed signed up on the animanon website, but i'm so busy with quite a lot of things (other forums too) that i cant find the time to be very active on all of them..... sorry!! anim8or.org and anim8or.com are too websites where i am only half active....... only websites where i am fully active are trekmeshes.ch and....... trekmeshes.ch  ;D

heh i updated it. if you download the model now, you'll find it adjusted to look better.

the mesh took about a month to make. here's an updated look:

less windows, changed the engine fronts and better panel textures.

That looks terrific.  Is it an original design?

Very well done, excellent model.  I absolutely love the textures, and the textured windows work really well.  Using two light sources, one white (Sun) and the other bluish (reflected from Earth?) is a great way to reveal detail, but keep the shadowy areas truely black.  Nicely done.

Only thing I would consider is perhaps a starfield backdrop, which would help to reveal the ship's shape and create the illusion of depth to the space.  I am familiar with the Stargate series, but not so well that I can provide crits on the model's accuracy.  At any rate, it is an excellent model.  Would you consider animating it?  Perhaps a fly-past?

Wolven anim8or: are you friends with spicy, because you both use the word ace
Startrekfan001, personally I liked it better with the extra windows, also, if your a Startrek fan, then how come you made a Stargate ship, you call yourself a Startrek fan, you Sir are a disgrace!
LOL nah just kidding, you're cool, LOL

A bit off topic: Tanzim, I am friends with wolven anim8or, school friends. And yes, we both use "ace" alot.
Back to the topic: As I said before ace! I would like to know how you started to make it and where you got the textures from, though
