Space to surface interceptor by Scifiwarships Space to surface interceptor by Scifiwarships
This is the second model I did for the Theatricus guys, to go with the spacestation. It is a space and atmosphere capable single seat fighter. I let the atmosphere capability be a guide for the design, as it let me streamline it to my hearts content, while knowing f##k all about aerodynamics...

Hi mate, thanks for the comment!
I suppose you're referring to the ETA-2 Jedi interceptor..? 
Yup, it does bear a resemblance. It's even got the same colors.
Wasn't intentional though, I try to create my own stuff.
Maybe the StarWars connection is why people seem so drawn to it.
I don't even like it anymore, and it's my most viewed model by a mile..
Anyway I'm glad it stuck with you enough to warrant a comment, Thanks!

Nope! Not some australian person. They use it in the UK as well, where I learned the language.
Can't help you much on the Vader costume. I only do vehicles and space crafts, sorry...

Mate? Well i guess that means you're some australian person. Yes, the ship looks identical to the star wars prequel trilogy.  I would be glad if you can make a fancy darth vader costume made out of gold or something.

Hi, mate! I'm not an Australian person thougH I do have family there.
 I'm from Norway, but I spent a year in college in Scotland and they use "mate" as well. It kind of stuck.
Sorry, but I don't do costumes, however a piped out Vader suit would be cool, hehehe.

Heh, this reminds me of a "space fighter" that I drew way back in the 80s, and it's pretty close to this.  Wow,  Cool stuff :)

Thanks mate! Yup, it's a pretty generic shape, so it doesn't surprise me one bit that you got there first, hehehe.

I wasn't aware of the Hiigaran interceptor when I madethis,but I've since checked it out and I agree with you. I think the Hiigaran ship is much cooler though. Thanks for the comment mate!

This seems to be a fairly common starfighter design, so it probably was, in fact, a coincidence. And you are welcome!

"Space to surface interceptor" i thought its for orbital bombing purposes

:iconscifiwarships:
Scifiwarships Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
he he, thanks for checking out my designs. Yes I agree, It looks sort of like a bomber. It was my first fighter design, so it came out a little weird. It was actually a comission for an orbit to surface single seat police interceptor... That ended up looking like a bomber ha ha ha!

So it does start from an orbital position, a carrier or space station, to the surface of a planet? Kind of an odd direction to go. Would suggest it only has limited abilities outside of orbit.

Still a great design.

Thanks, mate. It's intended as an orbit to surface craft, and I made it based on a brief I was given by the customer. The idea was that the planet had a world police force/jedi type organisation that monitored the planet from above and sent down interceptors when needed. It kind of makes sense from a logistical point of view, hehehe. Anyway thanks for liking the design. I made it a few yrs back and would have done it very different now.

This reminds me of a science fiction race game, i just don't remember the name.
This look much better then from that game.
NICE :)

Wow, thanks! It might resemble some of the wipeout racers, or so I've been told. It was my first ever attempt at a fighter so it's kind of simple.

Yes, that's it. That was the name of the game i couldn't remember.
It doesn't matter, usual (and in many kind of subjects) simple is the best way to go about.
