U.S.S. Trafalgar, Ambassador-class Starship


The Ambassador-class starship from Star Trek is near and dear to my heart. I decided to tackle making a high-resolution 3D model of it.

This project is COMPLETE.

This is a meta-post that collates all of the individual blog posts I make on this topic. If you prefer, you can also follow this project’s progress on SciFi-Meshes and Foundation 3D, where I first posted much of this content. The posts are in ascending order, with the first post at the top and the last post containing the most recent updates.
