A luxury racing shuttle for spoiled brats. Based on a brief from sturnclaw.

Sturnclaw, man. Sturnclaw. Otherwise, looks quite good.

I have some ideas for another ship in that line, but I'm not likely to get around to that for a while.

@sturnclaw:
To take these away for later reference, including a version to your two-gun sketch with trilateral symmetry cranked up:
First one would be OPLI for sure.

I'd actually put these two into the OPLI bucket as well, due to their blockiness. (Also a was, clarified on the second image)

Your flying gun:

And a more trilateral iteration on that

Some earlier trilateral sketches. Also, Mola Ramsayi

Definitely like that last iteration. Landing might be a bit difficult, but it does have enough reverse thrust that we could make it use legs instead of wheels just fine. We're going to need to support variable-position thrusters for the RCS booms before it gets implemented, but there's plenty of ships in the backlog until that happens.

Or it can be a tail sitter, if it ever needs to land. For carriers, I can put attachment points for some kind of canadarm like thing that grabs it on the docking tube and hauls it into the hangar and back.

I'm going to break this one out into it's own thread when I get a little further along, but here's nozmajner's Sador, now updated slightly to my tastes.
