"Starfighter 3" is a racing/rally machine made for a HispaLUG competition.
About this creation
This is my "StarWars meets The Jetsons designed by Ferrari" participation in a local HispaLUG Space-racers/rally competition.
The model was build according to several specific rules; 2 man (or droid) crew, no obvious armament, only normal rocket propulsion, and some other restrictions...
My design bets on speed, acceleration and maneuverability above all.

View of the "secret weapon" (now not so secret...);
A paragon of retro-future design! As if Spacemen Spiff's ship met the Swordfish from Cowboy Bebop. Your design choices are great! Love the "functional" looking support bits showing through the main red fuselage, like the girders, making it look like a descendant of real spacecraft.
