Scarab Fighter by Orpheus7
Scarab Fighter
A rough sketch of a Scarab-class fighter. I did it a while ago just to get my idea down on paper.
Nah-ship by Orpheus7
A sketch of an ugly but functional-looking ship. Part of the Fugly-class of vessel. 
Ratel-proc by Orpheus7
The Ratel-class combat packship has been used as an frontier orbital light hauler for decades. It is heavily armed and capable of defending itself against most smaller warship. Named after the long-extinct honey badger, the Ratel (pronounced raah-til) is a hardy workhorse carries its cargo on a self-contained palette from which it detaches before engaging threats. The palette can be remotely maneuvered away from the altercation while the Ratel engages the opposition. Once the engagement has been resolved, the Ratel locates and recovers the palette and the cargo. It has a crew of four and is designed for system operations so has no inter-stellar capability.  
Assegai by Orpheus7
My first upload in a good few years. Feels great to be back.
This is an Assegai-class interceptor used by the Europa Free Squadrons and later the Frontier Militias during the Banker Wars circa 2565ET. The Assagai was designed by Colling Truward and built by the Europa Colony Authority to defend themselves against the banking fleets sent to confiscate their colony. The design turned out to be extremely effective and the went on to inspire many later classes of fighter. Armed with a single ram gun in the nose (the first small ship to be so outfitted), four dogfight weapons in the stub wings and a rapid-fire missile bay in the belly, the Assegai was also highly maneuverable with all four of its drives being able to rotate to allow the pilot to execute almost unheard of maneuvers. Its hull was covered in cera-plate armour and it carried a modified diffusion shield that made it as tough as nails to boot. All-in-all, a classic.

Appreciate the Watch, Greg. I wish I could draw like you but my basic training was in technical illustration and my freehand (mainly biro sketches) are somewhat primitive.

Wow! I'm blown away by your gallery.  It brings me back to all the Star Wars' ship books I looked at as a kid.  I'm curious, do your drawings come from a specific world with a story joining them all, or they all "snapshot" ideas that are disconnected?

Thanks very much for the comment. Glad you like my stuff. Yes, I have an overarching "universe" within which all the ships exist. It isn't all that developed yet but I am hoping to pull the strands together someday.
