I think I’m pretty close on most of the geometry here. Probably need to resculpt the middle engine bar.

      Looks more like somebody was playing duck face with Pringles

    Should the leading edge radius be a bit larger? Agree on adjusting the middle bar. Other than appearing to be symmetrical to the side plane they certainly weren’t trying to make it easy for you.

      Not sure I agree that it needs a larger leading edge radius. Note as well that there will be added “plating” that will increase the local radius here and there.

      And yeah, the shape on this thing is a little non obvious…

    Have you seen the Star Trek Cats book on Amazon? The bad news is it seems to have been done with very minimal attention to detail (also the TNG version)…..sorry just thought of you for some odd reason.

      Saw it. Cute, I suppose, but not really my thing.

        Now–I think the bottom-most “Quantum loop” on the Orville actually sticks out just a bit farther backwards than the middle or top loop.

    So FP must have some sort of blessing from the show to proceed, I wonder if it’s considered as free advertising for the show or what kind of licensing arrangement exists.
