I like every model you posted on here, PsycoSama. BTW.. you got any render of any of these models in black space environment?. :)

These "Fleet Scort" ships would be a good addition in the game, IMHO.

Your Adraestia is always what i've pictured a Colonial frigate to look like, what with the line of flak guns on top. It's very first generation, though, and I think somebody made a point at one time about the longevity of smaller ship designs being alot shorter. Thus, I like the more Pegasus-y look of the Myrmidon more because I don't think a ribbed style frigate would still be in service.

I do think the engine pods are way too big, though. Look at the size of a Galactia engine pod in relation to the rest of the ship.

@deckard, I don't want to assume, but I think he just has those drawings. and they are just that...drawings, based on CanisD's work as it mentions in the corner. Again I may be completely wrong, but it makes sense to me that were they built and rendered he might have included more then just the drawings.

that said... I like the adrasteia design as a frigate. the panther design strikes me as funny (not haha funny, odd funny) having the Galactica head and engines and basically removing the flightpods to give it the wings, personally something just doesnt look right about it? The idea of something with those huge guns I like, but the top view of the "wings" just is a little wonky looking.
just personal opinions from someone who's never even attempted to design a battlestar etc, so take it as you'd like. overall nice work

At first glance, these looked as rendered draws to me. If is that so, would be cool to view some more 3Dish renders of them even in draft..

good point, I guess somewhere in my head things set to a white (or any solid-like) background makes me think of something like a photoshop picture, and that kind of "drawing" hadn't even thought of what you mentioned :squeeze:

Not a fan of the Panther. I think the forward facing main guns would make for tricky combat manuevering.
