    Easy! Point gun backwards, shoot gun. Insta-propulsion!


    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.

    Looks like he is the guy... he has some great stuff posted in his gallery.
    Check out my City Designer 3 tutorials. See my fantasy (city) maps in this thread.

    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:
    Three missile 'turrets' amidships, two laser turrets on the flanks and one dorsal turret at the rear, for six total. I can't see any others, though it does have a couple of carried craft. Nothing unusual there.

    Look for Chit Chat, Sandmann's blog. Enjoy.

    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 like his stuff too, great pictures though originality isn't necessarily one of his things. The designs of some of the starships are just a little too recognisable.

    Remora = Icarus (Babylon 5)
    Exeter = Firefly (Firefly)
    Wayfarer = Klingon Bird of Prey (Star Trek)
    Venture = Millennium Falcon / YT-1300 (Star Wars)

    I suppose there are only so many ways to design a starship intended to be used by humans.

    Partisan = Colonial One (new Battlestar Galactica)
    Morgan = Raptor (same)

    Textured 3d models always look so good when they're done this way; His work has a definite style to it.

    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.
