Alpha Orion II

My latest Blacktron II SHIP, the Alpha Orion II:

First off, yeah it's kind of boxy. but that is because this ship was built a little different then my others. This one I had designed the interior first. Basically with most my ships, I'll build the exterior first, and then fit the interior inside. This ship was built because I wanted to have an interior that wasn't lacking in some places, most especially the living quarters.
As you can see above, the living quarters are a lot more elaborate than any previous ship's. Each crew member actually have their one bed, with some personal items (With the exception of the ensigns..) The captain even has his own room! The ship also has the usual bridge, enginering, and two shuttle bays, but I won't go into those.

Blacktron X-1 Space Fighter

Peter deYeule gives us this beautiful and sleek Blacktron I fighter that is very aptly named Blacktron X-1 Space Fighter. The way the 4 wings slope forward is something I approve of, for it gives it a more menacing look to it. The big guns don't help with that, either.
