Bremerhaven (Progress Model 101212)
Bremerhaven (Progress Model 101212) by @fragmented_imagination (B Sanders)

Another update to the Bremerhaven model. With most of the base model complete (and me just realizing that I still haven't put navigation lamps on it), I've decided to start adding some textures to it. So far, I've put texture on the solar panels on either side of the tower and on the top surface of the wings. Both contain a combination of a surface layer, a bump map, and a reflection map. Now while you might have to strain to see it (because I took the photo as a lousy JPEG), if you examine the surface of the wing, you'll see that there are a number of panel separations and anchor holes for the cowling which fits around the wing's frame. The wing also has warning labels (those red things). The solar panel wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. If I were to give you a close-up of the panel, you would be able to see the small cavities which each cell fits into. The cells sport a reflective level stronger than the surrounding metal.

Nice for such a accomplishment, but... Where does the title come from? Bremerhaven is a German city...

[quote="Farel"]Nice for such a accomplishment, but... Where does the title come from? Bremerhaven is a German city...[/quote] The backstory behind that is the Amarians are descendants of Germans. Their other ship classes are named after states in Germany, but the Bremerhaven-class is named for the city.
