About this creation
Starhopper

This was built by trying to find something to do with the white snowslopes from set 3585. After much random positioning, I started working on a way to get them to connect bottom to bottom. This was easy enough, but trying to work this into a reasonable floor plan was a bit trickier. Instead of trying to get the connection out of the way, I decided to use them as engine conduits. This worked very well and lent itself to the story of the ship itself.

I initially wanted to have the ship be long and sleek and gracefully gliding down to a fine point following the lines of the slopes. That seemed like a good idea for awhile, but I decided to defy convention and snub the nose as much as I possibly could. I must say that I still think it is still very sleek and graceful-looking.

IP-475 Starhopper (TAI)

The IP-475 Starhopper is a consumer-level spacecraft fron Tachyon Aerospace Interplanetary. It has standard seating for two (upgradable to six upon request). With an available sensor package rivaling all but the most high-end craft on the market, the Starhopper is your answer to getting from place to place in style. It's compact LOA allows for tight maneuvering in all but the most confined areas, making docking very easily accomplished even for novice pilots.

Wow! Very unorthodox and very cool. It looks genuinely alien.

Nice, very unique use of the snowboarder jumps. Never woulda thought to use them as wings myself.
