    I personally use microsoft paint. But cooky uses a 3D program called Blender which is supposed to be affordable and online. And someone else said something about a program call Max 8 or something like that.

      I always use paint (because im a crap drawer)

        Blender is completelly free. I belive blender.org is the website for any who want to check it out. Most other 3d programs run in the hundreds of dollars.

            Made a front view and an some modifications. Also added an image of Mitchell for comparison. What's sad is the picture of Mitchell is better than the gateship, which totally sucks. >>
            Here's my modification of your ship, it's the F/SP-306 (for F[I guess Fighter] or SP[Supply]:

                That's cool..but the wings wouldn't really help it except for maybe in atmospheric flight I guess and making it look cooler. The thing that made it kinda unique was that it was gate capable. What are the arrow looking things in the back?

                  New challenge: Make ships for different races(Jaffa, Goa'uld, Lucian Alliance, Asgard, Ancients, Ori, Wraith, Replicator, etc...) Human ships can also be made.
                  Calvin grows up to be Frazz. The logical continuation of this is, of course, that Frazz then grows up to be Edward Norton's character from Fight Club. And thus, all four of these characters are gods.Let's go one more step. Calvin grows up to be Jeremy, who grows up to be Frazz, who grows up to be "Tyler Durden," while Suzie grows up to be Haruhi Suzumiya; since Kyon becomes The Doctor, this leads to the inescapable conclusion that after the end of Fight Club, Calvin becomes Captain Jack.

                    1. I despise Blender because it uses a complex and hard-to-learn interface.
                    2. I suggest a program called GMax, which was made by Discreet (owned by Autodesk who make Auto CAD)
                    3. I use a program called 3ds max.
                    Oh snap. You're reading a really old post.

                      History of the Siren Class

                      Launched 10 years after the Tauri’s first battlecruiser (the Daedulus) and 5 years after the launch of the Icarus class battlecruiser. The Siren Class is a replacement for the Icarus class battlecruiser. Using more prototype weaponry than ever before, including a new type of railgun able to fire 7500 rounds at mach 25 and the new Mark X Naquadah Enhanced Nukes, the Tauri hopes it can dent the Ori’s surge through this galaxy, (now that enough of the Milky Way has been converted to start building ships here). Another new upgrade is the first Mark V naquadah generator. This is around 120x more powerful than the Mark I generator. While it takes 2 generators to power the Ion Cannons, 1 to power the shield and the other 2 to power the rest of the ship.
                      Speaking of the Ion Cannons, these 2nd Generation ones are 10x more powerful than the first generation ones used on the Icarus.
                      The F-302E is the 5th upgrade to the F-302, better weapons and more manoeubability.
                      So far 7 of these ships have been or are being made.
                      They include:
                      Siren: Great Britain (Built)
                      Hercules: USA (Built)
                      De Gaulle: France (90% Complete)
                      Hindenberg: Germany (96% Complete)
                      Lenin: Russia (Built)
                      Aphrodite: Canada (80% Complete)
                      Shen Nong: China (Built)

                      War against the Ori so far
                      The first fleet of Ori ships were finally destroyed around 3 years ago, by a massive fleet of Asgard and Tauri fleets. This was done by sending spies onto the Ori ships and disabling their main shield systems. This left their secondary shields and hull open to attack, using the better shields, the ships lasted twice as long as they normally would. But casualties were still high, even after disabling the main shields.
                      Adria was captured by the Tauri and is currently being held in a secure facility in area 51. It was agreed by the Asgard and Tauri that she stays in this galaxy so other galaxies that haven’t been converted won’t be (including Ida). As said already much of the Milky Way has been converted to Origin (around 85%). Earth has become a safe haven for many humans who haven’t converted to origin and have escaped.
                      There are no remaining advanced races left in the Milky Way apart from the Tauri (that we know of). SG1 travelled to the last known Tok’ra planet and the Nox planet and found nothing on any of them. We must assume the worst, if this is the case then in confirms Earth is the only threat left in the galaxy to the Ori and it’s only a matter of time before they head for us (especially now we have their leader)
                      As far as our fleet goes, every remaining ship is getting these new upgrades that are being used in the Siren Class and still the Ancients sit back and watch their creation convert forcefully to a medieval style way of life.

                        this is the wraith fleet used in the gateworld virtual fleet, i'm terriable at drawing so i haven't done any pictures...

                        Wraith Superhive - Dreadnaught
                        Spoiler:
                        Wraith Superhive - Tauri classification 'dreadnaught'

                        Specs:

                        Dimensions:
                        Length 10.4km
                        Width: 4.5km
                        Height: 1.1km

                        Material:
                        Wraith inorganic and organic superstructure with wraith bio armour etc... melded on

                        Power:
                        7 wraith hive generators(extra generators exponentially increase weapon strength and weapon power)

                        Engines:
                        wraith improved hyperdrive(slightly faster)
                        6 massive wraith sublight engines
                        100's of maneuvering thrusters

                        Defensive weaponry:
                        -Non

                        Offensive weaponry:
                        62x hiveship canons(placed for full fire coverage) can pump as much firepower as 5 hives from the forward array by focusing all 20 of it's canons.
                        1x wraith shield dampening weapon

                        Defense:
                        1x heavy 2nd generation wraith shield generator
                        200m thick wraith bio armour multi layered and ablative to defend against drones and nukes(Armours design makes it almost impervious to serious damage)
                        -Internal shields to protect ship from taking critical damage


                        Fighters:
                        6000x darts

                        Other:
                        Standard wraith equipment

                        After fight the tauri for nearly 2 decades the wraith decided to invest in a single super ship one that would be able to bring down the allied walls of the Asgard and the tauri. Until now the wraith had always had the advantage but with the coming of the Asgard the wraith once again found themselves facing a foe as advanced maybe even more advanced then they...so the wraith built this the most powerful ship they had ever built with enough firepower to bring the tauri and Asgard to their knees...

                        This ship is one of a kind created to be the wraith high queen’s personal flagship only two have ever been built the prototype which was destroyed in Atlantis’s orbit and the flagship seen in the final waning months of the war…
                        Plans for this ship were kept secret, for anyone in control of this ship could challenge the queen herself…

                        Shield dampening Weapon:

                        This Weapon was designed to help bring down the shields of Atlantis this weapon takes tremendous amounts of power and the barrel is 500m long it is point and shot only and specifically designed to take down the shield on Atlantis.

                        When fired at a target it creates a heavy power drain amplified by the strain on the shield meaning that the time it would take to bring down the shields is decreased to 8 hours this weapon is experimental and the ships shields would be inactive during this time...


                        Predator class heavy cruiser
                        Spoiler:
                        Wraith predator culling ship(or heavy cruiser)

                        ~Type: Large hyperspace culling warship

                        ~Technology Base: wraith

                        ~Crew: 2000 (maximum capacity 4000)

                        ~Power plant: Hiveship power generator

                        ~Propulsion:
                        wraith hyper drive

                        4 heavy wraith thrusters

                        40 maneuvering thrusters

                        ~Weapons:

                        20 x wraith hive energy canons

                        1 x wraith planetary stunner capable of stunning 15km squared and able to penetrate 20m of trinium, titanium armour planting


                        ~Defenses:
                        wraith 1st generation shields

                        ~Other technology:

                        30 x small scale culling beams
                        1 x super culling beam able to cull an area of 10km squared and able to dematerialize solid inorganic objects(can be changed to completely disintegrate targets)

                        Developed to cull the large populations of the MW it's now seeing use in the war with the tauri. This ship was designed to negate the need for darts.
                        All the victims that are culled are instantly rematerialized into cocoons for feeding. With it's 20 hive canons it can pump out an impressive amount of firepower almost as much as a hive able to fire with 8 canons at once from any given point.

                        Given the new order the ship doubles as a heavy cruiser supporting the hives
                        And laying waste to cities with it’s disintegration beam.

                        ~Propulsion:
                        wraith hyper drive(enhanced)

                        6 heavy wraith thrusters

                        ~Other technology:

                        Standard wraith equipment

                        Following the rebirth of the wraith race all ships were upgraded. All ship systems have been enhanced and the introduction of shields mean that these hives can take far more punishments and with their enhanced weapons batteries the fleets of the tauri beware.

                        Standard wraith equipment

                        The cruisers now serve as escorts for the larger ships in the wraith fleet normally in large numbers they usually double as canon fodder with their weaker shields but in large numbers they are dangerous.

He has scaled the mountains of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries."

                            thanks...and it's fine i've been busy as well so i haven't done much, do you know when we'll get to see the next part of the battle??
                            Robert Jastrow (self-proclaimed agnostic): "For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountains of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries."

                              People who are posting actual designs should model them in a 3d modeling program.
                              I suggest Gmax, it is free and easy to use and contains the same interface as 3ds Max, a $7000 (standard license) 3d modeling program. (Ever see the one car commercial where they have the road at the end that says "zoom zoom"? That was made in 3ds max.)

                              I'm not just here to make that suggestion, I thought I'de post the back story (both the real and the story-story one)
                              Real:
                              My ship (see like, um, page 74 or something, maybe before that), the Draco was originally designed for bungie / Microsoft's Halo: Combat Evolved (particularly a version for the PC released by Gearbox called Halo Custom Edition in which you can, through the use of external 3d modelers such as 3ds max and Gmax (gmax hasn't been fully supported until a few weeks ago and the game was released 4 (?) years ago) create your own content)
                              So, yes, you could make your own vehicles and people spent months making things the size of cars and, in some rare cases, larger things (about the size of a F302). I was thinking to myself "we need something bigger...", so I designed the Draco and over a four month period, modeled it and made it game ready.

                              Now for the "Story":
                              The Draco was not originally made for the military, rather it's like taking a pick-up truck and throwing a machine gun on the back. In the Halo version of the story, the Draco was designed and built in 2552, but in Stargate universe, it would have been designed in about 2003 at the latest. It uses mostly simple technology such as an ion-propulsion system (which are actually being developed now), the hull is made of trinium (or in Halo, simple armor-grade Titanium). In both the worlds of Stargate and Halo, the military version of the small vessel contains a cargo bay with an energy shield. The shield allows somethings to go through it and is controlled by a computer. It allows smaller ships to be carried and deployed from the cargo bay (in Halo, the ship includes a small "jetbike", also of my design, it's called the Firefly because of its small size and large jet fume in the back).

                              Let's recap:
                              Please try and make 3d models of your ships.
                              and
                              The Draco was made for Halo: Combat Evolved
                              Oh snap. You're reading a really old post.

                                Okay as soon as I get the time, money, and program I will most definately make a 3D model of each and every one of my ships.
