This is my first time making a ship by cut and paste. I've had experience with Mobile suits, but this had an interesting learning curve to it. ^_^ So any help on how to make it look better would be great.

The parts i used were the X-wing (4 laser cannons), Batwing (Forward Fuselage), XF-400 Knight Hawk (Rearward Fuselage, wings, cockpit, and engine), BSG Viper (Laser cannon tips and Laser Cannons themselves); and B5 (2 of the 3 engines.)

Here are the specs as well for those who would like to know more.

Model: Nova-class Superiority Fighter
Class: Starfighter

Size Comparison with T-65 X-wing: http://i127.photobucket.com/albums/p151/SPARTAN-251/MandoFighterX-wingsizecompaing.png
Manufacturer: Cordaiya Dry-docks (Original Creation)
Length: ~15.6 meters
Hyperdrive: 1 Class
Max Accel: 4,200 G
Max Atmosphere: 1,690 km/h (Higher speeds capable with deflector shield on.)
Engines: 2x Fusial Thrust Vectoring Engines; and 1x Thrust Vectoring Ion Engine
Shielding system:

That's a design worthy of Bagera's older works, well done.

There's an X-Wing top view? :lol:

Its mostly there for comparing size and to give others an idea of how big it is.

What's the point of the cannons with the beam splitters? Also, this ship is a little over-armed for its size. I'd say drop the beam splitters and move those two cannons under the wings to the wing tips. Keep the rapid-fire lasers and make the wing tip cannons ion cannon, so the ship would be more versatile. And fusial is a type of ion engine, so this ship has three ion engines. Still, this ship looks pretty cool. :thumbsup

The Beam Splitters, or Splitter Couplings as they are called in SW Canon, disperses the energy beam from the cannon itself, forcing the target's shields to deflect energy simultaneously from two hits. Increasing the likelihood of overloading the shields and inflicting greater damage.

The rapid-fire lasers don't do as much damage, as seen by Jango Fett's version of Slave One in Attack of the Clones. So the ship mostly uses the the cannon under the wins and the wings tip, and uses the rapid-fire lasers to finish off the fighter quickly. I will keep the Ion Cannon idea in mind though.

I have been working on another version of the same fighter with different weapons load out, but its going to wait since it's a custom fighter that maybe used by an OC (Original Character) i have.
