The Caldari Moth is a powerful frigate. The inspiration for the project was from the form of a night moth - an insect that orients on the light of stars and the moon, which ads a little symbolism to the ship as an explorer oriented type ship. With 3 engines, two of which are located on the vertical and horizontal wings. Armed with two pairs of rocket turrets, one pair rotating in 360 degrees and the other pair - 180 degrees, dual plasma cannons on both wing, which can fire up to 2 shots per cannon per second.
The Moth is created for a exploratory player and its a good choice especially for the early development of a player that requires a diversity in the tasks at hand. Fast warping, decent firepower and cargo capacity - everything an EVE fan would like. No color textures were applied so that the projections can be used in the 3d environment.
A little more about the project itself - the original is hand designed on a paper with 100/70 cm dimensions of the paper and its created in 1:500 scale, every cm of the project equals to 500 in the real object. Тhe 6 projections of the ship are synchronized with one another, which is very good for the 3d animation artist.
