Title: Thrust Challenge - final entry - Star Fighter , Carsten Stueben (3D)
Name: Carsten Stueben
Submitted: 16th July 2016
I decided to edit this “old” post from the last deadline to add the new images, thoughts and the additional work I have done in the extra time we got for this.
So… here we go:
This is Mantis42.
It’s a one-man star fighter armed with 2x3 spinning blaster canons, rockets, torpedoes and two heavy railguns.
All the heart needs. <3
To be honest it´s rather a sci-fi design piece than a technical and rational study. But I´ve tried my best to handle both worlds.
In atmosphere it has the ability to vertically lift off and thirteen navigation thrusters give it the necessary 3-axis control in space.
The railguns are covered by two protection shells. I imagine they contain some kind of shield-system (and ok… I think they look cool as well). This is an exchangeable part to give the ship more flexibility.
Another thing I want to explain: The GR373L-Bomb is my version of a sci-fi molotov cocktail. I imagine it contains some kind of really bad chemical to do some really awful things at really big targets.
You get some further info a few pics below.
This project was big fun for me and I hope the results mirror this. Thanks for watching!
