Centaur Fighter by Orpheus7 Centaur Fighter by Orpheus7
An older concept for a fighter - yep, another one. It's point was to see how a small fighter ship would look with its engines and weapons situated well forward of the cockpit. Well, now I know.

I was on a flight from Denver to Charloette, and the guy sitting next to me pulls out his tablet PC and this picture was his login screen! I remembered seeing it years ago. :)

Thanks! There's a few other ships of yours I'll try once I can figure out how to get the effects I want out of Blender.

My ultimate goal is to make a scene that looked like it came right out of Star Wars. :)

Unfortunately any ship with wings at the front will be compared the the Naboo fighter - but it wasn't the inspiration for the ship by any means. It try to move things around on ships and see how they look - so this one was just an attempt at seeing what would happen with wings and engines at the front rather than at the rear. Thanks for the comment.

Sorry, I know it's hard to come up with something that has not been done before. I meant the comment as a joke more than anything else, I like your ships!

Please don't apologise. I wasn't throwing my toys. I was was just saying that when you move things around, some combinations end up looking like other ships. No worries.

Is that a turret on the rear of her? If so, sneaking up on her is gonna be painful for the other birds.

Also if this were a star wars craft, I'd say it mounted
2 x Fire-Linked Rapid-fire Laser Cannons
1 x Rapid-Fire blaster cannon
1 x Turret mounted Twin Rapid-Fire Blaster Cannon
2 x Twin Fire-Linked Heavy Laser or Light Turbolaser Cannons
2 x 4-Barrel Fire-Linked Light Rapid-Fire Blaster Cannons or 4-Tube Missile Launchers 

Then I'd classify her as a Heavy Fighter designed for swatting away the heavier craft and decimating Bomber formations

It has 4 heavy cannons on the wings, along with 6 dogfight missile launchers, 2 cannon in the nose and single-barreled gun in the turret behind the pilot. It doesn't have any capital weapons, so it would be best suited to anti-fighter or asteroid emplacement attack action. However, it's open to interpretation.

Reminds me of the Naboo fighters from Star Wars. Very good design though. I see an aero-space fighter capable of in-atmo flying as well as short range recon or even dog-fights in space.
Good design.

Not a bad design. Actually it looks great for a Star Wars seting. Keep doing the weird stuff, it works.

Really good looking fighter. Reminds me a bit of Star Wars and a bit of Homeworld yet it is quite original. :thumbsup:

Thanks. Yep, Star Wars (episodes 4, 5 and 6) had some of the best fighter design and they have been a big influence - especially the X, Y and B-wing fighters - and of course the TIEs.
