This must of been tricky to draw with the complete lack of reference available. It looks so different from the one in Wing Commander: Standoff!
Where are the hangar bays? The Hakaga had six of them, each fully self contained. I would think that those should be more prominent.

the book cover doesn't really show the hangars (the cover art)   but I put two of them underneath and in the middle.. and one on each of the forks in the front (for light fighters and quick scramblings)   (I also imagine a fly through hangar in the middle on top, but it'd be hard to see from the side view)

and the book text makes a point of stating that they are all works of art.. so I don't really feel bad that the one in standoff and the one I drew look different from the ones on the book.   they built 6 of them and had another 8 in the shipyards if I recall correctly.. I sort of picture each one having a unique style attached by the designer. 

but I definitely like tricky drawings.      for the record, I adore the one in standoff, but they worked so hard on the model and textures I do not want to detract from their design by doing a carbon copy myself.      so great.. one of the hardest fights in wing commander and it comes from a prophecy mod :D
