    The idea for this was that someone bought an old cargo ship, and refit it with a new bridge, suitable life-support and living areas.

    That last pic gives me an 18-wheeler vibe.

    Hmmm. Yeah, I can see that. Parts look like semi truck air dams, there are circular doo-dads where wheels would be, and the instrument cluster at the front looks something like a truck badge.

    Out of boredom, I started fiddling around with my website, adding orthos, and sometimes touching up a few of the older ships.

    As I was getting images ready, I started looking at one I liked, but never could get the engines right: post 155, Later I made a related ship post 1198 where I liked the engines much better. So I've adapted those engines for the shuttle. I like this better, but I may revisit it again in a few years.

    I really like the texture and details you're applying to the 'head' of the ship there.

    Thanks. Hexagons are my go-to when no other ideas jump out. I want this one to be sleek, and advanced looking.

    Somewhere along the way the file for this was corrupted. Parts of the geometry rotated 90 degrees, while other parts didn't. I think I fixed everything, but...

    I was a bit further on this, but the file went weird, and I had to start over.
