I got a kick out of this Probert concept

Because I did a very similar ship for the Titan design contest. I never entered it, but it's been posted here in the past.



Hmm- for some reason my work comp won't let me link my photobucket image.

Here's the address to my photobucket ablum for now.

http://s89.photobucket.com/albums/k2...tanPhoto12.jpg

Now my ship was inspired on an idea based on the delta insignia shape. I thought it was a nice shape for a shape.

Apparently so did Probert. I came across a sketch he did shown on Mark Kingsnorth Sci Fi Art web site... I'll get the image when I get home. I don't want to violate image posting rules.

The image is a very similar Probert signed delta shaped ship (dated 05/19/10).

Has anyone else seen this and have any thoughts on this ship?

I've planned to GoogleSU it, but it's a complicated ship so I've been reluctant. But I'm re-inspired after seeing someone who I respect come up with the same idea as I did. Not that it's not possible- after all, put enough monkeys in a room with typewriters and at least a couple are bound to pound out "is", "at", "to"... et c.

Nifty! I likey. It gives me ideas. EVIL ideas.

Of course, one shouldn't expect less from Andrew Probert, but he still manages to amaze.

Re: I got a kick out of this Probert concept

I did something similar m'self a while ago, as well, though my approach was more horseshoe than Starfleet delta. And a bit less bold.

This feels like a scout or tug. I certainly like the overal idea- but then again, I'm biased.
