Im glad to see that you never got cured from the retro virus! Awesome cigar shape and the sweet little functions - opening rear, e.g. - totally classical! Seems to be one last survivor from Gibraltar Beta, if Im not mistaken?! Long live GAIA!

Actually gool ol' Mr. Snipes got his tail in real hot water for NOT paying his taxes for several years and was ducking the law for a while! Last thing I remember hearing he was serving time in the clink but that was a couple of years ago. I'm not sure what his status is these days but it's safe to say his career is in the toilet too.

Quoting Mike Johnson Okay Parrington what's with the brother serving drinks by by the open window. Can't a black fig get a lil respect round' here! Just yankin' your crank old friend. You have always had a way with retro sytled ships and this one's no exception. But seriously though, where's the shower scene man!
Hehhe, how bout next time I make him a vampire who hunts vampires and looks like Wesley Snipes. What ever happened to that dude after Blade? There's only one thing we should worry more about being type cast, and that's not being type cast! lol, cheers as always Mike!

Quoting Chris Phipson With all the large scale stuff you do sometimes we forget about the "workhorses" of the fleets. Glad you didn't forget! Nice one! ~ Chris.
That's so true! I sometimes have to force myself not to do yet another micro, lol. This one was a strange build, it was originally designed to be a land rover transport but I couldn't get those darn Mission to Mars giant orange wheels to stay on properly so I turned it into a space ship!

I like this! Seems to have that perfect blend of playability and functionality, yet has a look of compactness and sleekness. Great work! -Ultra

Quoting Mr. Xenomurphy This shuttle has got a nice retro flair, which I like very much. It looks like something from 2001 (the film, not the year, haha).

Quoting StoveTop Creator Looks like it's got a cargo area too, behind the seating? Quite a multi-purpose ship! I like your nebula background in the main photo too. :)
