Thanks for the link dude! Whoa, those things still
make the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. Probably the scariest looking ships ever made IMO, especially the way they just shimmer in, blow the crap out of everything, and shimmer back out, all without shouting threats over the com or even stopping for some good old fashioned looting and pillaging. Wasn't OP just a tractor unit? (the front part of an artic.) I won't rule out giving it a go, but it may take a while, since I've got another idea I want to have a go at first.
I've been thinking for some time that it might be nice to have some fanships based on books, ie. there's no pics to work from, just whatever kind of description the author gives (usually pretty general/vague if any), and your own imagination. For my first I'm gonna have a go at Trumpet (Needle Class Gap Scout, Stephen Donaldsons Gap series). If anyone else wants to post this type of ship on this thread, please do. Please include relevant information ie. author/book/series. If you want to post other fanships or custom ships, go ahead, just remember there are already other threads for this which will probably get more views. Happy building!

And here it is, after a certain amount of rebuilding due to filepath issues...
For some reason the colours towards the back of the ship wash out a little when it renders in sandbox. If anyone knows why, let me know, otherwise I guess I'll just have to over colour it a bit in SM.
