It's moments like this, seeing a model that is exactly the inspiration I needed, from a builder who had the exact same effect six years ago when I was just starting high school.... It makes me thrilled to be breaking in to the online community this summer
I think this is SO great!
-I love the way you did the repair bots. Makes me want to integrate my own complex robots into future models, rather than just an astromech droid
-I love the shape of the cockpit, it's very industrial, simple, and doesn't break the lines of the rest of the ship.
-The interior is extremely well done! I like the break between the living quarters and the storage area!
-The use of the black, greebled center section offset by smooth white and orange exterior plating works great! It's also not too parts-intensive, which is inspiring in itself. Combining colors like this could get me to my first SHIP
Looking forward to seeing more work from you, man! Thanks for posting this!
