It looks that my 3D model of Andromeda got your attention, so I made new topic about her. Because hull of Andromeda Ascendant has very complicated surface, I decided to create her only as low detailed model for use in background. Hull itself is not simplified in any way, but I didn't model any bumps, etc. on it. This fact can be partially compensated with bump maps, but I didn't use them, because they are also not needed for model viewed from big distance. As reference pictures for modelling I used views of Andromeda which can be found at official site www.andromedatv.com. If anyone wants additional informations, feel free to ask. Below is a picture of my Andromeda viewed from various angles and a link to short video of Andromeda flying by.
