So at this time last week I had made a Viper but I didn't really have anything I could do with it so this week I set out to start making a launcher for it. Normally Vipers are launched from launch tubes aboard a Battlestar so I've used that as my starting point in the creation of a different type of launching ship. I'm building my own ship from the inside out as it were and before anyone calls me insane for building a whole Battlestar from the inside I just want to say it isn't a Battlestar. Instead I view it as a hybrid of 2 ideas that could have been used before the colonies made there Battlestars (because battlestars are frakin huge and would take a long time to build).
I have a basic idea of what the exterior will look like as I sketched out my ideas before I started building the launcher. Nothing to show yet as I've just blocked it out at the moment and I plan to build it this week if I get any more free time.
Anyway heres what been done so far. The 52 meter launch tube (technically it should be 170 feet but I think 52 meters is close enough), the launch tubes chamber thingy, both doors (forwards ones are up for the pictures, some very basic lighting, and the walls of the control room for the launch tube.
I'll up an update next week if I make any progress on this little project. No promises though, it really depends on my schedule at the moment.
