About this creation
Detailing the ship was both fun and hard work. I decided to never go bigger than in this vessel, cause the amount of detail to make it look convincing dramatically increases with growing size.

   The four wheels in the foreground are connected to electric switches to control the electric drives: Turn the thrusters, Thrusters on/off, Compressor and turn the main cannon.
Right in front of the two position lights, there's another pneumatic valve. It directs the air flow down to the container.

   Closeup off the cockpit. Quite some SNOT here. The side window is an old style space canopy build in sideways.

   Here you can see the locking mechanism to lock the container in place. It's connected directly to the inner technic frame.

   On both sides, there are pneumatic valves to control the functions. Front gear in/out, rear gear in/out, front container locks in/out, rear container locks in/out. The greeblies on the faceplate went through at least 5 iterations till they looked like that. The plate dramatically contributes to the overall sturdiness of the main fuselage.

   The yellow seat turns along with the turning cannon. Driven by a micro motor. I like this feature.

   The semiautomatic particle cannon. You target roughly, the clearly visible aiming unit does the rest for you. Works fine...

   Closeup off the folded landing gear. I like the design, cause it supports the ship both retracted and deployed. In both positions no pressure is needed to hold the weight of the ship. Pressure is just needed when you pick up the ship to hold the feet in retracted position.

   Closeup of one thruster. Serial number of the ship and energy coupling visible. The couplings nicely blink in the dark.
