Every once in a while, I get a crazy ass idea that just doesn’t work out the way I’d hoped it would. This is not one of those times. 😉
One of the things I’ve had planned from the beginning was to put some big ol’ retro fins on the back. Before I tapered the back end, I was just going to build them traditionally and stick them on straight up and down or, more likely, at an angle. Well, the back end makes putting them on at an angle so that they follow the hull contours a nightmare. So, since that’s out, I decided to go crazy with them and have them be these weird curving things. After all, the ship hardly has any straight lines, why start adding them now? The end result is actually better than I’d hoped it would be. 😀
Yes, I realize they’re completely impractical and serve no purpose. But, I don’t care about that. I’m an artist, not an aerospace engineer. I like how they look and that’s all that really matters to me.
