After the very 'studdy' Monsoon, I wanted to build something on the opposite end of the scale. I think I succeeded at that.


My main inspiration for this SHIP was of course the 'Kunde Freighter' from the Homeworld universe. I altered the design somewhat to make it a little more interesting to look at and to build. The wasp like waist was the hardest part to get right. A lot of time went into testing it's durability.


The design of the bridge started out far simpler/smaller, making the main ship more massive. But then I came up with the Sphingid shuttle, and really wanted to incorporate it into the build. So I upscaled the scale and elaborated the bridge section. The final design is far more interesting than it was, with believable window sections. The name is a little nod to an awesome game.
