Origins by WideFoot
The USS Ranger is my most recent model, but my first model was very similarly shaped, and similarly named.  The Ranger in the foreground is the first model I ever made in Sketchup, or any 3D program.  I hope you can see some small amount of improvement from one to the other.  

I've tried out all of the skills and tricks that I've learned periodically on a ship called The Ranger, which invariably has a keel and outboard, slightly under-slung engines.  I've made three so far and I plan on making more.  The next, I think will be a solar sail ship, if I can ever get the proper inspiration.  

This basic shape of ship is inspired by the Starship Titanic, which is my favorite ship design.  Perhaps, when I feel my skill is sufficient, I will draw the Titanic itself.  In the meantime, these Ranger ships are the ones that live in the fantasies that allow me to escape the drudgery of daily life.  

This is just a screenshot from Sketchup.

My old bio has reminded me that life can improve over time. I am not a better photographer, but I am a better bike mechanic, I have a better, and more exciting job, and a beautiful girlfriend. I enjoy being me, most of the time, and I want to keep on getting better at it.

Yeah, your stuff is awesome, and I love watching the progress as your ships get built.  

Sorry to hear about your dad, condolences.  But, that is an awesome way to mention it.
