I was recently inspired to create my first SHIP.
Since it is my first any advice, especially on good ways to support it, would be great.
Here an old version to give you an idea of the general shape:
After a couple tries at this I decided building it in modules would make it easier to change and build, as well as transport later in it's life. Sorry about the crappy picture. It's hard to tell but this is the main bridge. Down at the bottom, where the green canopy is, is a fighter in the hangar.
So I've done some more work on it. I've changed the bottom section of the command area, and started on the air locks.
In the front you can see were the laser cannons are going on the bottom.
Here you can see the back side. Down at the very bottom are the hangars with ships inside. You can also see where the engines will attach as well as the curvature at the top of the airlock section. I'm probably going to shorten the top airlock module so I don't have to worry so much about how to finish the curve.
Here's a shot of one of the hangars and the back of one of the fighters. The fighter simply attaches to the magnet on the ship and hangs there.
So the middle section has been split into three sections: hangar, control, and roof. I've completed the bottom two sections as well as a better stand.
On the upward slope! In fact besides the interior there's only two modules to go!
Any advice on this would be great! I don't know about a name yet and how I'll take pictures of it either. Any comments or critique is welcome!
