U.S.S. Kelvin

This one is my pride and joy. My idea was to build a Star Trek TOS version of the Kelvin seen in the first JJ Abrams Star Trek movie. It was the most complex and detailed model I had ever built. Partly because at that time I finally had a computer that could handle over a million polygons without grinding to a halt! LOL Rooms behind windows are basic sets with very low polygon furniture. The lights and spinners in the bussard are fully animated. The textures on the model were all done by me. Again, because of the computer I had, it was also the first time I rendered an image in 4k. The video was rendered a few years later with after another new PC was bought. The shuttle you see in the video was based on the original Matt Jefferies design and was modelled by me.
