Been away for some while, but still lurking and communicating with some members. It's been so long since I've finished a drawing, I decided to do just that. I've got several drawings in various stages, and this one was the most complete, so after a couple of hours of adding the final details and trying to remember all the specs I had conjured up, here it is.
I had used Rowdy36's Munglinup Frigate as inspiration (which reminds me, Rowdy, did you get rid of it? I can't find it in your thread), and did my usual thing. Some may notice the use of multiple angles throughout the ship, which I did as an experiment but I quickly liked it. If you look closely, you should be able to see that every angle complements another on the ship. I drew up most of my own systems, missiles, and electronics, but don't ask me about the technical aspects because I don't know. I'm horrible with the electronics, and really just had to guess at it. I was doing pretty good when I first started this ship, but 4 months have passed since then. Anyways, here she is.
