    I’m an absolute fan of your work! This level of detail is incredible! Congratulations.
    Have you ever planned to make some kind of animations with your models?

    This post you said have the class names for small warships: http://bbs.stardestroyer.net/viewtopic.php?p=3887224#p3887224.
    You done both the Intersector class (the gunship/sloop you did) and the Velox class (the light frigate) but not the Funditor class so does that mean this light corvette will be the Funditor class then?

    Is this ship more powerful than the custom corvette and it’s military variant?

    • Anonymous

      Since both custom corvette and the military variant only got duel LTLs (the military also got four quad laser cannons as secondary) as is main armament. This corvette however has one duel MTL as is main while is LTLs are secondary and two unknown long turret ball batteries underneath the front ship which look like ion cannons.

      So who would win in the fight this corvette or either the custom corvette or the custom military variant?

        Both get almost one-shot by MTL hits from the top turret. The ions would be equivalent to light MTL. Ultimately, the customs ships are barely military spec.

          Whoa this ship is powerful for the light corvette and it look like they could be escorts for the Vigil class corvette.

          By away both the customs corvettes you said they stand no change against this ship well the normal variant I understand but the military variant well the armament it have doesn’t make the different even with the extra LTL and some quad heavy laser cannons but what about the fighters it got would they help against the light corvette or not?

          • Fractalsponge

            Well, what fighters can do against big ships is a bit up for debate. I wouldn’t be surprised if fighters could carry warheads that can one shot either corvette to be honest (otherwise fighters wouldn’t be able to do much vs things like ISD shields). At the smaller end of the ship scale, the fighters may collectively have more firepower than the mothership. Getting close enough to launch and *hit* with those warheads might be easier said than done though.

    If only it were a mod for spaceengine…

    The engines look gorgeous!

    Ooh, airlock. Plus engines more than befitting a fast lower-end capital craft-I appreciate your reliability in that regard.

    This looks so convincing!
    Having recently finished another model myself I believe I have an idea about how much work goes into this. Hope you don’t mind me putting a link here: https://countvertex.tumblr.com/

      I liiiiike-very plausibly-early-generation shuttlecraft. Those upper/lower wings are more attractive than no small number of official small ships, and the retractable turret tower is a nifty touch.

  8. Maybe not painted…maybe heat discoloration from the engines.

    Man is must have taken days to create this very detailed engines!

    A splash of colour on the engines, eh? I think this might be the first non-grey coat of paint for a Palpatinist warship.

      *About to raise objection, realizes this may actually be true, puts hand down and shuts up* 🙂

      I was going for a coppery-metallic material – been looking at IRL engines for inspiration too much…

      • Steve Bannon

        Hey, I like it. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with IRL inspirations for Star Wars gear given how much of the original studio models were kitbashed World War II models. Heck, even IG88’s head is a turbofan engine component.

      • Wasington

        On a completely unrelated note, Fractal have you ever thought about doing the Aramadia SSD?

      • Could use the excuse that the engines give off so much heat (it is meant to be a light, fast frigate, no?) that repainting the engines is just folly, so they leave the more superheated-prone parts the original material?
