SmgL-6 Cargo shuttle

This ship belongs to a smuggler named Charles LXVII. Charles was once a part of the crew of a larger smuggling vessel, but got tired of having to split the profit and started his own "business".

He bought this old shuttle-like craft which was originally intended to resupply orbital space stations.

However, Charles didn't want to run from the cops so he outfitted this shuttle with every single stealth device available in his solar system. This resulted in a ship which you wouldn't even be able to see if it was floating right in front of you. Charles has now made a small fortune by smuggling ancient music instruments and pizza-boxes with weird prints from one planet to another.

 

Built for the "A Smugglers Life for Me" contest.

I wanted this to be a bit space-shuttle-like with something extra (orange stripe).

Also features attachable landing gear.

The photography was done using one over- and one underexposed pic which were later merged in photoshop.
