The Arronax V-65, a custom starfighter I designed for Star Wars RPG.

It's a cross between BSG's Viper and Star Wars' X-Wing.

Reminds me of a Viper from Galatic.

That was the idea - a Viper/X-Wing mashup. Or maybe just a Star Wars-y Viper.

This looks like what the T-Wing could have become if it wouldn't suck. Very cool!

 This works very well as an older Incom design. I'm guessing the laser cannons are those things on the wingtips, while those holes in the fuselage are torp launchers.

So this is the basis for the T-WING fighter. Now I now where to look for a corvette. Hey what about specs?

It looks like you took an E-Wing and put fins on it.

You might as well have just used an E-wing since its performance is supposed to outclass the T65 X-wing and BSG's Vipers aren't as survivable as SW ships, Galactic Empire era TIE-series craft being the exception. The XJ series X-Wing, from what I read, is also superior to the T65 X-Wing so performance-wise, you've shot yourself in the foot.

I can only assume this is supposed to be military-grade since Vipers and X-Wings are primarily military space superiority fighters. If its supposed to be civilian, then, I suppose, a less-than-cutting-edge design is appropriate.

Wow, dude. Go outside, fly a kite, write your memoirs, love a woman - but stop comparing specs of imaginary space ships.

Haha. Says a guy who designs ships for role playing games. Pot calling the kettle black? I give you a critique of concept and you insult me.

An artist who can't deal with the fact that his creations may be flawed never improves. Mull on that while you think of new ways to insult people who may disagree with you.
