thanks sokol.

bit of an update - just reshaping the back and trying to get it all to work - spaceships are harder than i thought.

started making landing gear, but i'm not sure about them.

If you create a shape and you start to search, sooner or later you find something that looks close.

Did you know that the amount of images that can be shown in a computer monitor is finite? you just multiply all the posible values for the pixels and you get an enormous but finite number.This number includes all the possible pictures shown, all the possibles pages written, etc..

ha ha - thanks for the pic tweet. i was thinking it maybe looked a bit like a snowspeeder - definitely had that in mind - and maybe a couple of wipeout ships... don't think i've played that game tho - looks cool.

i'm definitely with taquion on this one - originality is a myth.

Tell me about it - I got someone on face book saying my ship looks like his - cheeky bugger.

Excellent looking model for such a short time Arran, I like the thruster type bits at the back, all round very good!

Arron, I like what you have done in the time you had. Certainly like your modeling style, I always have. I really would have enjoyed seeing it if you had 2 months, it would be killer I know!!!

Yeah, nice model man! Very clean as usual.... would have been better if you had it an an environment.... even a docking port would have been cool.

It still rocks either way!

Good luck!
