Hey C17,Awesome as usual! You never disappoint. I do have one question though. “Realistically” each of those greeblies on the exterior of the hull would serve a purpose or be attached to something inside. There are a lot of exposed mechanicals. Have you given any thought as to what they are or what they do? Sensors, cameras, outflow valves, etc...?
I think about the mechanicals of an aircraft and wonder what it would be like to crawl around with a screwdriver or wrench trying to troubleshoot an issue on the outside of these ships. Every greeble would have at least two fasteners holding it to the hull, so each was bolted on for some purpose, right?
But again. I LOVE IT! It’s like duct tape on top of bandaids on top of sheet metal covering bubble gum over plywood.
Thanks! Believe it or not... every greeblie, pipe, and detail that I have added to the exterior of the ship I actually think "ok... this has to do something, right?" In reality (the ship's reality), all those greeblies wouldn't be as exposed as they are but the pilots stripped as much of the exterior armor plating as they could reduce weight. They did a lot of special modifications...
It would be great if someone took on the challenge to label each greeblie and add its function. That would be worth a "What a Piece of Junk" T Shirt!
