Pretty easy too, if you're just looking for a nice visual-
Get a nice color CG cube image and have it printed to scale- printed in color, each side (about 40" square, I think) would probably run you about $30, so that's most if your expense (call it $200 after tax).


And there likes the issue with most Borg models. 40" is 1/2500. If you want larger scales you get into small rooms. Even gaming scale models are too big to game with. The Borg cube is not hard, it is just huge. If I put an image of the Borg cube behind my main modeling shelves it would cover most of the wall behind them. 40" is eight shy of four foot.

An accurate scale Borg cube will assimilate your modeling displays.


I was thinking of making a 1/2500 Borg cube - I would dual-purpose use it as an end table.

I've thought of making a display case. It would be 4 half-walls and one wall split in two so that they open as doors

I thought of it as a display case for my models, but that's another good use :lol:

I changed my model box as the 'fan art' image as gorgeous as it was rendered zoomed in was making detail work incredibly hard so:

Started working on detailing, rebuilt the pylons to the orb thing in the middle:

... and made the basic bulge parts before I start modelling the pipes etc.

Image



added my 'sails' to it to see how if 'fits' need to work on the connections to the smaller sails at the tips but overall i'm happy though like the probe I sense my frustration will come when it comes to the time to make all the pipes and stuff lol

Because when you see the Diamond in Dark Frontier it's moving and has an excessive amount of motion blur I'm taking a little bit of creative control with the panel work as there is no way this thing is going to be baby bottom smooth. I'm not going to go overboard with it, but enough to break the solid lines :)

Model so far is completely hollow and will be large enough for lighting kits for the moment. :)

Wow, Adam - I'm stunned at the rapid progress you have made with this. Looks fantastic. Watching this one closely to see where you take it.

I'm really surprised how long it's taking too. 6/7 hours in.. But then it's set to instantly mirror every polygon 8 times to build up lol.

The time consuming part will be all the pipes wires and nodes, particularly on the top n bottom bulging bits and the connection arms
