Duke, Cargo shuttle
Duke 690B. Terax Corp cargo shuttle.
About this creation
Duke 690B.
Originally used in the Terran wars by the Phacodi military.
During the war, Dukes had the reputation as the workhorses of the fleet.
And also well known for the seemingly random nature of the primary life support systems located behind the seats which would occasionally decide to catch on fire and engulf the cockpit in smoke.
After the war the Phacodi military went bankrupt and the Terax shipping corp purchased 700 of the ex-military Duke class shuttles to serve as cargo shuttles.

Notes.
Mainly inspired by the Puddle Jumpers from Stargate.
And that Mini-shuttle from the movie Titan AE. The one that Cale and Korso used to escape the scavenger ship at the start.
Its about time I posted this, its been sitting around ontop of my TV waiting to be photographed for about 2 months..

   Plenty of room inside to transport even the most bloated drug filled smuggling elephant..
Well if it had no legs it might fit that is..

   Upon reading it again I have concluded that the above sentence makes no sense. If you did happen to make some sense of it you've probably had to much Vodka & Cough-syrup cocktails..

   The crew complete the final checks and are ready to lift off before posing for a photo.
Secured aboard is there vital cargo of some 1800 bottles of boiled lard power smoothies and a precious piece of cosmic debris that looks like Sean Connery.

The color orange should be used more often in MOCs. I like the smooth, angled sides. good job.

Really like the shape of the cockpit and fuselage, to get an interesting and functional look. I happen to like the orange windshield and patterning from the black angle connectors, too. Not so sure I like the shape of the gaps in the wings and engine exhaust, but those are minor details compared to the good stuff. Very cool.

This has some really nice construction details, and the overall shape, although blocky (intentionally)is great. The only thing I can complain about is the rear end of the wings: it could do with some modifications. to me, it looks too flat. Other than that, this is almost perfect. Congratulations!
