A full ship pic would be cool. I'll try to get geared up to attempt the round TOS nacelle this weekend. If you don't mind I might start a new thread though.

I'll put the pictures here and the post can be moved if it needs

So here we go, I got 3 of these from Sci-fi Meshes and 1 from Deviantart
First couple are by Atolm

This one is by Galen

This is by MadKoiFish (in my opinion one of the best re-imagined TOS Connies out there, would have loved to have seen this instead of the JJPrise, I have more/better pictures of it that I got from Sci-Fi meshes, but this one was a good one of the engines)

I love 2,3 and 4! Number one is still too much raging queen for my tastes. Nice to see the inner details on number 4. As this is the most "round" nacelle of the bunch, I'll tackle this one in my step by step build.

On a side note, I have been trying to contact Atolm through Scifi-meshes with no success, has anyone had any contact with him recently?

If you want more pictures of the MadKoiFish Enterprise, just let me know, I grabbed just about everything he posted on SCi-fi Meshes when he was creating it.

As for Atolm, I haven't seen anything new from him over there in ages. He might not be posting there anymore. As for drawing number one, I like the engine design better than the over all ship design.

Let me know if you ever get ahold of Atolm, he has alot of great designs - I wouldn't mind taking a crack at a few of them. I've tried tracking him down but he seems to be off-line for the last several months or so...

If we had a front or an ortho view of this we might be able to identify donor parts...
