Thanks for the replies guys, I went ahead and finished coloring the whole thing how I liked, and yes i still did choose maroon, mostly due to the fact that the inspiration for this ship is also a maroon color. I also fixed the asymmetrical piece in the middle, thanks for pointing that out. Oh and I added team colors as well (it looks quite nice in red).
I also armed it, it now possesses 6 front facing autocannons and 3 repeaters on each side to protect the flanks. It also has 2 flak cannons and some particle guns for defense. To balance it out the HP is somewhat low and it has very slow turning. This balances the massive forward facing damage by allowing smaller ships to get around to its flanks.
Added the pic into the first post for easy viewing.
Oh and just a fun fact, if anyone plays or has played eve online, this ship is a loose replica of the namesake from that game. Mostly the shape, color, and autocannons were what I tried to reproduce. Here's a pic, and remember I said loose replica: http://games.chruker.dk/eve_online/grap ... 8/3135.jpg
