    Wip Utility Boat (spacecraft)

    If I wait until I am working on something that will look great, I may never share anything.
    So here is a quick and dirty massing model for a small Utility spacecraft that I am working on (all rights reserved).

    Pretty cool. What's the scale? Is there a way for the crew get back to the drive section if they need to or do they have to go EVA?

    EVA ... those are five roughly 9x9x19 foot cargo containers that it carries.
    It is a utility craft shuttling between ships in orbit or landing cargo on the moon.

    One ship done, seven more to go ...

    [EDIT: added an astronaut with EVA pack to the render for scale.]

    Very cool, are you do this just for fun or for a larger project?
    What program did you use to make this?

    A book of starship plans for Avenger Enterprises.

    The top model and plan are Autocad.
    The images are sketchup tweaked in photoshop.
    Fast is the prime requisite for this project.

    Done.
    Not really happy with all of the results ... but I never am. Some of the ships need more time (which I don't have).
    ... anyway, for anyone interested, here are the rest of the ships:
