This is an older build of my own design which is not intended to fit into any series or universe. I wanted to make an obviously well used ship, a small scout explorer that has been stripped and retrofitted over time. I did have a set of removable panels to cover the aft section but those have been lost over the years.
For those with a sharp eye for anime subjects you will see a multitude of parts. I pretty much just ran through the donor parts stash and found some interesting stuff. There were no drawings done before hand, I made some basic hull shapes from sheet styrene and began fitting stuff together. The semi-gloss areas are windows as I made them back then, I did not want to get bogged down with cockpit interiors which need to be designed around and built before hand- this was just a build for fun.
BTW- the two forward side guns swing down (surface attack mode) and the two aft landing gear pads swing up to tuck under the main engines and help protect then during flight, While the forward manipulator arms do not actually move, they were inspired by the 2001 Space Pod arms and are articulated the same way.
The model is about 9 inches long and photographed on a 1" scale grid.

This ship has no name or even a clear definition- I wanted to have the person looking at it to come up with their own backstory, just like seeing some vehicle on the tarmac in a background shot.

Very cool design and excellent work on it

If I had to fit it into an existing universe, I'd say it might look at home with the ALIEN stuff, especially with thins like the Nostromo and refinery rig. Kind of industrial looking

Cool. I too dig the asymmetric design. It looks like it's a ship that's been around the galaxy a few times. Not that you're asking, but I feel like if it had a name "Rover" might fit.
