Scratch built starship YT-3600

So a friend of mine has decided he's going to make a scratch built YT series starship so he sent me a picture of his idea he wanted to go for something recognisable in the starwars unverse yet different at the same time completely original

So anyway after seeing a picture of his idea i thought it looked awesome and just had to share with you guys ..



So what do you guys think? any suggestions? criticisms?

personally i can imagine that in the starwars EU flying alongside the falcon and the outrider.

Maybe not have the cockpit so far back, might hinder the view a little bit. Other than that, I think it's pretty sweet. Kind of makes me want to design my own ship.

It looks cool, but don't you think that the name "Stormrider" is almost the same as "Outrider" ? (The Outrider was Dash Rendar's ship)
Just a question.


That's no moon. That's a battle station.

The YT-3600 is uglier than YT-1300 imo. Kinda looks like a cheap copy of the Millenium Falcon :P

The YT-2000 is by far my favorite of the YT series. It's just so...symmetrical. And it was in the game X-wing Alliance (one of my favorite games).

Can't wait to see the finished ship.

For the first picture. I think your Cockpit is way too small for the design, either that, or your turrets are way too big.

The shape of the Engine/Hyperdrive should be more round off.

Also most YT series have their plating sim lines in radial cake like sections for the curved parts, rather than the "tetris" like pieces you have.

And yes I do like the YT-2000. Well, YT-2000 is quite a battle-ready ship even with minimal modification. Snap in a better hyperdrive and engine, and add some armor plating, and you get a really good attack craft.

The YT-1930 looks fairly cool though.

I like the YT-3600! Your friend did a very good job. Is the cockpit raised or lowered in order to see? With what I believe is a cargo compartment is really in the way. Other than that I think it is a piece of art!

I like it. I made starships desines myself, just I can't find them.
