  • Cool. Are the holes thrusters?
  • rojrenrojren249 Louisville, Kentucky USAPosts: 1,433Member
    Yes. I'll add more, after I figure out where they won't be in the way of other stuff.

    This one looked better in my head. Still working on it, though.

    This is my take on another ship from Alan Dean Foster's Humanx Commonwealth books.

    This is a cargo ship: Aggerose.

    Added another row of storage canisters. This makes the ship just a bit over 1 kilometer.

    Intriguing. I'm curious where you'll go with this one.

    I think I like it. It's as if Cthulhu drew a Maltese cross.
  • rojrenrojren249 Louisville, Kentucky USAPosts: 1,433Member
    Thanks. It was influenced by religious symbology, but something a bit more mundane than Lovecraft. The bit in the middle - the drive core - is based on a church steeple. Come to think of it, it looks a bit like the one on the church I went to kindergarten in.
