Looks like he is the guy... he has some great stuff posted in his gallery.
Also, in browsing deviantArt tonight, I actually came across this very image coincidentally. Here's the page of the artist on which I found it: http://paul-muad-dib.deviantart.com/gallery/
Still trying to decipher the signature to decide whether this is the originating artist or not, but I think it might be.
By a process of elimination, the fuel must be stored in the ventral bulge at the rear, under the engine room floor. That portion is not cut away, cos fuel is boring to look at.
The weapons look reasonable for a Traveller 600 tonner which I'd estimate is its approximate size:

I looked at that guys DA gallery...I feel so unworthy of calling myself an artist after seeing that stuff. Yowza.

Heh, Ascension, I feel like that with a rather ridiculous number of the artists, there, so feel not alone. You get used to it after a while.
Looks great, Wormspeaker! KEEP the guns!
Have you guys seen Ryan Wolfe's starship art and cartography? I bumped into him working on Serenity Adventures. His work makes me want to give up illustration and take up knitting. http://ki-ryn.com/Future_Armada/Gallery.htm

I can't believe nobody dropped the "Kill 'em all, let (insert name of greater being here) sort 'em out" comment. Oh wait, I just did.
All in all, very nice!
When nothing is going right and you can't find someone else to blame, start beating your head against the wall, 'cause it'll feel so much better when you stop.
