Weekly Speedmodelling Challange

I tought it would be fun if we had Speedmodelling Challanges again. So now I try to make one.

The rules are simple.
Each Friday will be given a new topic. Everybody can participate and can submit countless models through weekend and the next week, until Friday.
Eeach model should be built from scratch, within a time limit [1 Hour].
This challenge is about modelling, so texturing, lighting, shading, etc. is nice, but absolutely not necessary.
Only three images has to submitted:
1) Wireframe, without any textures, and reflecting or refracting material.
2) A beauty render, if you like.
3) Reference photo, concept, whatever. Linked or embedded.
[Max Resolution: 800X600, per image]

Each Thursday (11:00 PM CEST time) the previous winner (Judge) chooses the new one, and gives C&C for every submission. Than the new winner gives us the new topic on Friday (ASAP).Than his/her name will be written into the hall of fronats, and the board will be updated.

A new topic should always hold a possibility for extensive submissions, but it has to provide some guidance. The turn opening post has to be posted in this thread, and start with a centered, bold text, including the nth of the turn, and the title, with font size set to 6. Than a short description, examples, ideas would be appreciated.
The html code example for title text: <font size="6"><center><b>#[nth turn] [Turn's Title]</b></center></font>

In case the judge do not choose the winner, or the winner do not post the new theme from Friday to Sunday, someone else will take the missing role.

#1 Spacefaring

This Friday I give you as theme: Spacefaring

Make a model which resembles a well known, yet maybe iconic spacecraft, satellite, big or small, existing or fictional. You get the idea.
Edit: Or if you will, create your own design.

Millenium Falcon -Star Wars
X-Wing -Star Wars
USS Enterprise -Star Trek
Citadel -Mass Effect
Puddle Jumper -Stargate:Atlantis
Discovery -2001: A Space Odyssey

Or some real life ones:
ISS (International Space Station)
Endeavour (Space Shuttle)
Hubble Telescope

As there was no winner yet. I'd like to ask Nik Clark to be the judge for this turn.

Here is what I was able to come up under one hour:
Normandy SR2 - Mass Effect

Congrats, you found my signature.

Does it have to be an existing design?

Like, you mention video game, film and tv-series space ships, and real-life actual space ships. What if I just wanted to go crazy for an hour and model a space ship in my head? I'm going to say space ship one more time. Space ship.

@mrgrotey-Much appreciated.

@LionDebt -Yep, I said "existing or fictional", so pretty much anything that's looks like some kind of spacestuff and can fly, levitate.. whatever it does. I want everybody to take that challenge easy.
I admit It wasn't clear in the description . Editing it right now, thanks for pointing out.
On the other hand, I think It's easier to follow a reference, than create your own design on the fly under an hour. But it's up to you.

@Garp-Thanks for participating. I did counted on you.

Congrats, you found my signature.

I think my 2 year long lady friend and I broke up tonight, but I'm going to submit something for this tomorrow dammit.

It's about keeping Maxforums alive. 1 hour for Maxforums is easily justifiable.

Yes, done in under an hour (around 10 minutes actually). Thanks zbrush.

Technique (for those interested):
1. Make cube
2. Shadow box (with polish set to 1)
3. Divide to around 800K
4. Mask by peaks and valleys
5. Deformation -> inflate -5
6. Done.

Note: if you set the polish to 0 you get a cool LEGO result.

Agree with Grotey... until now.

Same technique as before with polish set to 0, then lots of clip curving. [edit] oh yeah, and I did a perscpective distort on the z axis to create those spikes and thrusters afterwards.

Thanks Grotey. It was about 1hr 10mims to be fair. I made the mistake of modelling the cockpit as one piece and all the wing panels are cut into the mesh as single pieces too. If I did it again it'd be far quicker.
I learned a good workflow recently on digital tutors, so that helped a lot.
