Works in WSF. But Frosted detail will emphasize the detailing better

I was just thinking of ways to make the model more affordable. The cylindrical bridge section is in keeping with Corvan large ship aesthetics but i was deciding whether it would be worth justifying the savings (probably not very much in actuality) to have the cockpit variant considering the class. But i think sticking with the cylinder is better since that is where the forward weapons and sensors are mounted, otherwise the front would look too much like this ship. I dont want to go away from the 'official' Corvan look (though logically since i designed them i could and no one could argue *L*) as they are a supposed to be a rather traditional race when it comes to design

@Gosric Didn't the larger scale [1/1000th??] one you already did have a 'Blockade Runner' [BR] type, sideways-keg shaped cockpit already? I'd just stick with that; you could make it more conical, unlike the more cylindrical shaped one that the Corellian Patrol Cutter has. Just my 2 cents; it looks more 'military' than the WWII style cockpit, IMO. I always thought the BR / Tantive IV looked mean with the cockpit like that. OR, you could do something completely different [no Monty Python reference intended]. :^)

@VK4501 The gunship is nearing completion. I shall double my efforts. I am just trying to decide whether to stick with the somewhat disc shaped control bridge that the larger Corvan vessels have or give it the world war 2 style cockpit that the Assault bomber and Scout have since it is only one class larger than the Scout

@Gosric : It is such a cool model; I was just thinking of that gigantic tube sticking out in the breeze in atmospheric combat. But then, I think of most of the stuff from Star Wars in atmo, and I shudder. I'd save your talents for making the Corvan Gunboat in 1/270th. :^)

Airlock size, the interior is cramped already so the airlock is partially exposed.both to give more room in the lock and to allow the slight extension function that it has but that i didnt make functional, no point really. But i can do a version with a shorter tube as one of the mods made by rebel forces

@Gosric Great! I was wondering about the 'docking ring' on the ventral surface: could that be reduced? It appears to stick a LONG way below the bottom, unsure as to why? Space station / carrier restrictions???

@VK4501 I can do a multiple set. But my comp is slow and useless and will only handle one stl conversion at a time so it will be a little while before i can get to it. As for the guns they are fixed but could probably be removed easily enough.but i could make a version with separate guns if you like,though again it will be a while before i can do so

@Gosric Any chance you would make this in sets of 2 or 3? Also, are the 'guns' on either side easily removable, or customizable?

@VK4501 Thank you. I like that idea, though it might be prohibitively expensive. Once i finally finish the Starwing, Ebonhawk, Corvan Gunship and Phantom TIE i will see about making it and how feasible it is. One day i will actually get caught up *L*

@Gosric This looks like an *excellent* candidate for you to design a 'tender' design. This thing has what would appear to be an airlock on an extended neck protruding from the ventral surface. How about: a ship design, fairly 'skeletal' ? [ like the BBF1 by TOPO: ] You could have 4-6 docking rings, arranged such that Bloodycrows could all be docked at once; a sort of mobile [but slow] freighter-tender? Oh, and bloody good design on the Bloodycrow, btw. :^D

@prevailingwinds I'm looking forward to it. your work is excellent and always a pleasure to see
