Alright so here's the first ship that I've been happy enough with to post on any forum...ever.
This started out as a heavy fighter, then I scrapped the outer design and decided I wanted a more shell-like look, but then it became too big to get the shape I wanted, and didn't have much room for guns. So now it's an envoy shuttle from the faction I'm working on, the Markonians.http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?i=4897454

Comments are welcome. If you're going to tell me you 'just don't like it' though, you have to tell me why, so I can fix it. Likewise, I only want criticism if it is going to offer a way to do something better...just saying "that's a stupid plate technique" is totally unhelpful.
