A new craft for the Great Space Race.

The AR-24 Avaire is a Medium Class Space Fighter designed to operate for extended periods of time, in orbit around planets or in deep space around mother vessels. The first manned fighter of its size to feature gravitic warp technology, the Avaire is capable of short warp "burst jumps" that allow it to disrupt lock-ons and throw enemies off of its tail; however it's incapable of true warp. It's powered by a hybrid gravitic twin-engine that controls its jumping capabilities and thrusters, as well as a moderate deflector shield. The weapons of the Avaire consist of a pair of double barrel linear rail guns; ideal for breaking down the standard deflector shields of smaller fighter craft, on top of a high-powered Directed Energy Laser Cannon; a weapon mostly designed for carving through craft that have lost their shields. This two-man fighter is the most recent mass production fighter fielded by any military currently operating in the Milky Way, giving it a technological edge over most other small fighter craft.

An older original vehicle design I came up with in art school.

The MBN-2 Versacraft is supposed to be a vehicle to replace both the car and helicopter in civilian police forces, offering a cost effective replacement, while fulfilling their roles at the same time.

The craft seats four, cabin space similar to police cruisers of today. It's powered by a micro-fusion reactor, like most vehicles of the 22nd century. One thruster points towards the rear featuring a vectoring system. Two turbofan engines point down and swivel on a computer controlled gyroscope system to maintain stability. They also function to steer the craft.

This swat team model also boasts twin 20mm machineguns.

Some facts:

The Gliwice Radio Tower is the transmission tower of the Gliwice, Upper Silesia, Poland, radio station.

It is an 118-metre high (including the 8 metre long spire on its top) construction of impregnated larch wood framework. The tower was nicknamed "the Silesian Eiffel Tower" by the local population, although the similarities are minor.

For access to its top, there is a ladder with 365 steps.

Gliwice Radio Tower is perhaps the tallest wooden structure in the world. It is designed to carry aerials for medium wave broadcasting, but the transmitter is not in service any more.

Little history:

On 31 August 1939, the Germans staged a "Polish" attack on Gleiwitz radio station, which was later used as justification for the Invasion of Poland. The transmission facility was not demolished in World War II. From 4 October 1945, until the inauguration of the new transmitter in Ruda Śląska in 1955, the Gliwice transmitter was used for medium wave broadcasting of the Polish Broadcasting Company. After 1955, the transmitter was used as a jammer against medium wave transmitters broadcasting Western Polish-language programmes, e.g. Radio Free Europe.

Changed the hood up a bit, all those straight lines didn't look right. Since I still don't have textures I thought some neat lighting would look good.

Tanya finally flipped the radio to Star 101, unable to find another station playing anything better. It’s not like it wasn’t music she hadn’t heard fifty million times, but it was better than nothing, she supposed. She peered through the fog, focusing on following close behind the taillights in front of her. Even if it was close to noon, the thick layer that covered the bottom half of the Golden Gate made it seem more like evening.

She tapped her fingers on her steering wheel in time to Timbaland, cruising along about ten miles slower along the bridge than she’d like. She had stuff to do today, dammit, and she wanted to get it done and be back in Marin County before rush hour started. Somewhere beyond all the fog, something thrummed heavily. It caused a tremor to run through her car. It took a moment for Tanya to realize it wasn’t the bass from the Hybrid in front of her. She recalled seeing some big naval battleship in the harbor as she was returning from work yesterday.

“Oh God.” Tanya muttered with a roll of her eyes. “Did Fleet Week come early this year?” Just what she needed. Jets disrupting her week with their loud engines screaming overhead again. The closer she drove towards the middle of the Golden Gate, the heavier and louder the thrumming was getting. She could feel it vibrating through the entire bridge now. “Shit, what’s going on?”

She peered into the fogbank and could barely see the dark shape of the bridge around her. She crept under one span and saw the tall angles of the next just only visible in front. Except there were other shapes in front of it. And they were
moving.

“What-“

Things flashed, illuminating the fog almost fluorescently and when something
exploded, Tanya screamed and put her hands over her mouth. One of the dark shapes roared and lunged forward, bright flashes coming from around it and slamming into the other. Light flickered in the fog, turning it an orange-red and dark smoke spilled into the air. Tanya’s wide eyes followed the billowing column and there, hovering in the fog were eyes. Bright, flashing red eyes. A bellow like an airhorn times fifty broke the air and opposite those eyes was a glowing band that just barely illuminated what could’ve been a masked face. Tanya thought her heart stopped as her car crawled between them.

Oh, hell no. She thought vaguely. I’m so finding another route home.

Submitted for Liam Shalloo's pin-up contest. I actually wasn't going to submit anything for it because the deadline wasn't too far after my finals last semester (even though i did spend time toying with some thumbnails for it).

I ended up doing this, though, because I was just suddenly struck with the idea of someone driving along some fog-ridden area of San Francisco and not realizing they were coming up on a giant robot battle until they were practically in the middle of it.

Didn't place (didn't think i would, either) but I got a couple good critics on the piece and if there's any others- go ahead and let me know! Not my favorite piece (as it's not particularly dynamic) but I do enjoy the idea behind it.

If I get around to attempting to color it (or if someone volunteers to color it?) I'll probably scrap it later. Until then- enjoy!

Nothing special - a simple wallpaper for no reason.

Made with my bokeh brushes.
