Started off as a science type vessel, then the guns showed up... More shots to follow.

I like the lines on this one...looking forward to seeing a 'finished' copy, if this is indeed a WIP. :)

Yeah its a WIP for sure. I keep finding little flaws in it and things that need tweaking. I had actually forgotten about this model until last night. I opened it up to look at it and decided to clean it up.

Looks to be a great start, I really do like the lines...and I might steal a bit of ideas from it. Every time I try to do a freighter build, it ends up in the trash can, but something like this could inspire me.

Awesome! Can't wait to see what you come up with. For me this was inspired by Star Trek, and their liberal use of saucers. I wanted to try and integrate that design into something a little more mundane. If you want to collab on one let me know!

You know I was going to mention the obvious Trek reference, but I am not really a Trekkie (Star Wars designs ftw!)...still, this is a perfect think to contemplate and think out of the box with. Collaboration sounds great, just need to think of a project worth our collective time.

I agree about the Star Wars designs, much more believable. I try and pull inspiration from pretty much everything, nature, movies, books... If you can make a fusion of it, that is the aim. If you come up with any ideas, let me know. I cant keep up with the ones I have. I need to keep a sketchpad closer to me. :O

Isn't that the way of it? You start off peaceful and sciencey, then all of a sudden, WHAM! you're packing enough firepower to orbit Tony Stark's ego...

Yeah that about sums it up. Now I just need to figure out how to pack enough power plant in the ship to power the cannons.
