Through Alien Skies by Drell-7 Through Alien Skies by Drell-7
This is a kind of a digital "mood test" work in progress for a more complex final scene. The ship's paint color is based on the "anti- nuclear flash" flat white that most of the British bombers were painted with in the '60s.

Modeled and rendered in Lightwave 10, with post work in Photoshop. Thanks for having a look!

Looks kinda like a continuation of the Dryden Lifting Body program and low hypersonic research.
Guessing this old bird is powered by SLAM-Pluto project Tori class nuclear ramjets?

It looks a little like the ship from the original "Planet of the apes".
"Icarus", was named by the fans. I love that starship.

This looks like the early clone wars era Jedi starfighters.

This one was designed circa 1978, so I think the Jedi starfighters look (vaguely) like the Class S Scout. The Class S is actually much larger than the fighter, having 3 decks and accommodations for six. wiki.travellerrpg.com/Classic_…

Haha yes, sorry it's just that with that color scheme they resemble each other.

Saturnian or Jovian Helium-3 mining, perhaps? :D

Also, the color of the material brings Starlite to mind. Intentional? If you're going to be doing Jovian, or even Saturnian, entries, then Starlite would be an excellent sci-fi material for the job. Such a pity what happened with it. I blame the inventor, though. I think he even got offered a 10% cut once, and still turned it down. We all payed for his greed IMO.

Well, the scoops ARE for scooping hydrogen, for what the game calls Frontier Refueling. Its a starship, though. Traveller is a space opera setting, although it does try to get a lot of facts right.
