I took some quick photos and did just a little editing to clean up the background. The old star-fighter was built about 10 yrs ago and at the time I named it the SF84-Thundercat. It underwent a few changes, but remained the same fro a long time. The star-fighter was a hybrid heavy fighter/bomber and I always liked the idea of having a gunner or multi-crewed ship. I altered it recently and changed a few things including the color scheme, more fire power, added retractable landing gear, removed the droid compartment and the gunner station. As you can see, the shape stayed relatively the same. Take a look at the old vs new photos:

Underside:

Comments and criticism welcome. A few things I may need help with is maybe renaming it (Hammerhead sounds nice) & what to do with the empty interior.

Nice!
The color change over and detail changes look really great. I like what looks like thrusters and a main power engine sources. This looks good sized.

I like both versions, but the new one has more of a Classic Space vibe.... It kinda reminds me of the Galaxy Explorer (497) for some reason.

Thanks for the comments. I am really happy with the near end result. I'll redo the other 2 soon and eventually get better pictures up. Still undecided as to what to do with the interior, but I'll think of something. The Hammerhead sounds great for a name (yea, I know its not original). I have become inspired to alter some of my other old star-fighters. I was happy to find a use for the large blue wheels as and engine turbine.

I really like them both! They remind me of different types of Halo Warthogs; Pretty much the same but repurposed for different battle roles.

Nice! I really like the style, it reminds me of cylon raiders. Although if these are atmospheric capable, I might add bigger side engines to the one with the rear turret!

Howabout the Pattern 47 'Kingfisher' Fighter/Bomber?
