Exterior only--it's for a map I want to create. Two Frigates fighting. Due to needing to build two and the budget limits of Forge, I'll probably be making it about 1/5 scale.

As an aside, it looks like the smallest UNSC Frigate is about 150 WUs long in Forge (based on your recent conversation with FyreWulff that 10 ft = 1 WU [right?]). I marked that out today on Forge Island--insane! To create a full scale UNSC Frigate, you would have to use a modded map.. there aren't enough structure pieces. But that would be impressive!

Anyway, I'm seeing a lot of side and top shots of UNSC Frigates, but the side fins are always blocking the shape of the body. Something that breaks it down into separate pieces would be helpful, so I could get a clear picture of the central body. I'd like to make it relatively visually accurate in it's basic shape. Of course, I'll have to take liberties in the interior--so don't kill yourself.. but I figured you probably have a lot of images somewhere that would be helpful in getting me started.

For the interior, I'm going to have at minimum a hangar and control room, both of which open to the top of the ship, which will be the primary battlefield. Players will be able to drop, ODST-style, directly onto the enemy ship. Soo, it's going to be very inaccurate in that regard---but like I said, I'd like to make it relatively visually accurate in it's basic shape.
