Strike Fighter WIP

This a Spacecraft design I am playing with, a nod to Homeworld and just a bit of fun really. I am not sure how much more I will do to it, finish the service vehicle and add some ground crew, done.

I think it'd look better if you stripped away the big wings on top it's back and put some form of weapon and/or detachable on the little wings on the sides. Would give it some purpose, as the only thing I could see wings being useful for in space is being pylons to attach guns and fuel pods onto. But hey, that's just my opinion! Good stuff otherwise!

Torpedo Corvette!! LOVE IT!
BenWootten's avatar
Not quite a corvette, more of a fighter/bomber, only a crew of two and very little range or life support. Thanks!!!!

Ah ok, I was trying to decide between bomber or corvette but decided to roll the dice and say corvette ;)

The dice were wrong, get new dice;)

Cheers, this was the first non commissioned work I have done for ages, not even sure why I did it. But I do like making these practical if I can, wheels, so much more useful than skids that most folks put on space fighters.
loving the cockpit/missile launcher section

Nice drawing. One remark about construction of fighter - strange thing, air intakes are placed behind missile racks. Anyway, looks cool =)
That missile loading machine looks cool. Did you come up with it yourself or is based off of existing machines?

Nice one...
It shows just how BIG those 'small' fighters are in comparison to a human.

I'm HUGE into realistic spacecraft, and those this doesn't look 100% realistic, it's an extreamly interesting design and I'd love to see what more will come of it! Also, the art is outstading!

I really appreciate your comments, ido try to keep stuff grounded in reality where possible. This is probably as far as the design and it's use will go, really just a doodle of sorts:)
