The Cygnus by Stevolteon The Cygnus by Stevolteon
The Cygnus is the flagship of Valuan 1st Admiral Alfonso, and much like Alfonso is more concerned with looking good than being any use in a fight.

The plan was the other flagships would flow quite quickly once the Auriga was done since most are based on the same body, but if this has taught me anything it's that those similarities don't go terribly far when it comes to a build! Or rather, even with a solid core to start with, getting the details right is no small job.

Ideally the weird blade things projecting from the deck would be far thinner. The arrays above the bridge should be on a single mast, but I couldn't find a way of doing it which wasn't far too thick and ungainly. The bow was a pain in the neck too and involved a lot of compromise - so many better looking techniques just weren't structurally viable.

Still, on the whole I'm happy with the result and I'll move on to the next one before I try to perfect this!

This is so amazing! I count myself very lucky that I get to watch you build these from start to finish. ^_~

:omfg: All right now! This looks amazing! :clap:
Yeah, Alfonso’s so full of it. He was all talk and way out of his depth in some of the stuff he said. Especially the bit about arresting Galcian towards the end. Yeah right. :D
