    Another new mesh..... I've been fiddling with a fighter design for a long while, one that is smaller than the F-302 and only capable of carrying a single pilot to the 302's two...

    Spoiler:



    Roughly 7.5m long, 8m wide and 2m high (with the unmodelled landing gear) the idea behind the fighter is for the DSC-304 class to be equipped with a larger fighter capacity than they could with the F-302....

    weapons consist of 16 missiles and a single gatling-gun style cannon ala the Warthog.

    In my Ideal SG world, we would have cracked the Jumper drive-train... and created our own version....which is what will power this fighter. with the three thrusters, the fighter will have three speeds, cruising, fast and atmospheric exit/Emergency

        Los likes! Is there a size comparison, or do you have lwh measurements?

          havnt made my mind up about final LWH measuerments yet
          currently she stands....no! Floats with a 10000m diameter

          here is a comparison with a 600m 304!

                  I actuallyl thought the buildings looked too simple before but the hex design he's incorporated have assisted with the ancient style. I'm really starting to feel it.

                    i agree with you to me they also felt "Primitive" and i think wih this version i might capture the Ancient look better!

                        Yeah but the city is really a work in progress. The whole thing is alot like a mechanical/architectural project just like atlantis was. I applaud you for even taking up the project.

                          It seems like It has been a while...

                          I started on a new ship, a long range science vessel.

                            DUDE that....looks really good!
                            Really frickin' awesome! Best thing I've seen you put out...

                            and DUDE that is NO SCIENCE VESSEL. That's a Kick but destroyer!

                            (EDIT)
                            Let me add: For a science ship you might want to add more spires to the front of the ship and make the ship smaller (in appearance because this looks huge).

                              Cheers, at the mo its under 600m long...its progressed really quickly, took bob's tip of components. Usually I build the shape then add details after, with this design I have been adding as I go.

                              Its still early on in the design, I planned for it to explore the Ida galaxy, I had a dream that the Ancients were/ are humans(us). The ship goes back in time just as the ancients enter the MW galaxy. They join the ranks of the ancients ensuring breadcrumbs are left for Earth.

                                For it to be a destroyer, it would have to have loads and loads of missile silos/launchers. I can't really see any. Its more like a frigate.

                                Are you still stuck with paint? or is photoshop working again?

                                And, nice as always.
