Thanks, everybody. Glad you like it.

I'm going to do some more alterations to it, as I realize that the secondary hull needs to angle down at the wings just a bit more....the D7 and K't'ingas should look like bulldogs in space....so to speak.

The alterations should come fairly easily though, everything else about the ship I'm quite satisfied with.

Well, I think I finally got 'er. Here's the final build of my redone K't'inga. The secondary hull looks MUCH better now, angled properly.
Model: Klingon K't'inga Class Battlecruiser
Source of Inspiration: Star Trek The Motion Picture (1979)
Model builder: Martok2112
Tools used: Blender for component build
Adobe Photoshop for UV map texturing
Reallusion 3DEXCHANGE for conversion to iClone format
Reallusion iClone 5.5 PRO for final assembly, rendering, and animation

This is an evolution of my K't'inga builds. The model on the left in the first pic is my first build, using very generic textures...but it has the hull plating on the command boom and secondary hull. The middle model is the one you've seen most recent until now...dropping the hull plating for good photographic UV textures. The model on the right, I've tried to correct the upper part of the command boom (and it's still a little too rounded, but I'm too burned out to try further). Also reused the hull plating from the first model.

LOL! I guess a build is never really truly as final as one might like to think it to be. Managed to restore the forward crown lighting back to what I originally had, added on the disruptor cannons, gave the upper spine nav light a blink. I'm sure there'll be something else that'll crop up eventually.

The B'rel class bird-of-prey is considered to be 109 meters in length, and the K'tinga class is claimed to be 214, so roughly double. But both have that torp launcher in front.

It's not canon, but in my B'rel class MSD I show a rotary 12-torpedo magazine aft of and feeding that launcher, which may or may not be right and may or may not apply to the K'tinga class but does seem to make sense, especially considering the shape of the hull there. At least it supports the idea of rapid fire. The magazine can be reloaded quickly from the rear, since three or five ports face the torpedo storage room at a time.

It you accept the idea, it may not affect what you're doing unless you show one taking a hit and want to show some of the inside exposed. But it's something to keep in mind that may come up. I didn't make a K'tinga MSD, but if I ever do, I'm sure I'll show the same kind of system.

I don't see the link to your video, but my YouTube channel has a link to it.

This shows the rotating torp magazine:
