Rusty Ship 2 by ~Vonmurder Even if this spaceship is grounded, it still has great design. Good luck with fixing the ship! ( Featured by MacRebisz )

I know how that feels.  Gots me an old Chevy I've been poking at for around 15 years.

I like to think that someday soon, one side of the rusty landing gear will finally give way. With a groan the old girl clunks her starboard quarter panel into the dirt - kicking up a small cloud of dust. No one was hurt because the old man and his dog both dive from under the hulk. Now everything leans at an odd angle. That is until later that same week the other leg gives out and she flops down on her belly. The only life lost is the one prairie dog that just couldn't dive deep enough into his burrow.

Great job, I love =) if there was a more detailed the interior, the cabin crew, the captain's cabin, kitchen, bathroom, mess-room, it would be all cool =)

Excellent. Cheyenne dropship from Aliens 2 by any chance? Or closely related to?

I wasn't really cognisant of that design when I was painting this. They're not really similar at all if you compare them.

On second inspection I see what you mean -there are a lot of differecnes. Same tail configuration and the front of the fuselage is similar, that's what caught my eye.

Aye, "one day" but she looks like she'll need a complete overhaul, and thats not just the inner and outer hull being pressure-tested (doing that in atmo is always a pain - much easier in hard vac) and then there are the electrical sub-assemblies and their kilometers of wiring that has to be conduction tested and traced. Not to mention the primary LSS, atmo ducting, electrical sub-assemblies, environmental control, logic systems, and the manoeuvering thrusters ... one of those sticks and will not shut down and its goodnight vienna. And main drives are a pain to overhaul, always have been unless you are willing to strip it down on site and literally crawl through the engine guts and its thrust chambers to check for corrosion. But with time and some tender loving care, this wee beauty could fly again.

As you can see, I * LOVE * old ships, which is why I also design them.

gave me the feeling of the ships in Battlestar Galactica (raptor) but then also give a feeling of the Bebop from "Cowboy BeBop" Series, that worn down everything's just streached a little to thin so it's worn down, great look!

anyone (artist or commentors) ever read a book from the late 70's called "Spacewreck"?

It reminds me strongly of this type of artwork, very memorable stories and artwork.

All I can think of is the background story to a Star Wars: Expanded Universe ship called the "Dusty Duck".
