Starhawk
A sleek space racer.
About this creation


I made the Starhawk in Winter 2004. It started off as a small starfighter but I decided that it looked too fancy to be a combat spaceship. The design is another strange blend of different inspirations, mostly "Flash Gordon." I especially think the tail lends a retro-50's aspect to the ship, which is an overall fluff and fantasy craft. The ship features large outboard engines which rotate on the vertical axis, much like the new wing-mounted engines on the Nasal Avenger 3 .

   The engines rotated 90 degrees for take off and landing.

   I thought this side view captured the rocket-like quality of the main fuselage.

   The Starhawk sits on a single retractable landing skid, shown extended here.

   The landing skid retracted. Note the laser range finder assembly underneath in front (with the trans red tip). This feature is a carry over from when the Starhawk was a starfighter. It actually is just the right amount of brick needed to balance the ship on the landing gear.

This thing is supa-supa' tight. (Bro told me to type that!) Anyway, I like the overall look. It appears as a futuristic flying thing (meaning it'd use some sort of super-efficient airfoil.) The landing gear alone is actually what inspired me to build my Jaguar Heavy interceptor. Actually, it was your Desk Diplsy plane. Thing. I forget. Shutting up.
