Tom, this is awsome. Well I actually complimented about that illo (from the Operators Manual) more than once.
I am so grateful that you put it up here, as the illo in my book has very light lines and even postworking on the scan never brought the details out correctly. Now I can start remodelling my clumsy Type R variant with proper reference art (something that's been on my to do list for ages).
You definitely branded THE Traveller Fat Trader design. I just love it.
The Image has been a favorite of mine since the times we were actively playing Traveller from the moment I held the Operator Manual in my hands. The book itself however looks a bit overused these days, I must regretfully admit.
