Yoshi likes! I'm also getting a bit of "construction equipment" vibe from the yellow scheme as well, somewhat fitting for a worker bee. It makes me even more interested in learning about the story of SolC so that I can find out what the Eclipse's original purpose was before it became a fighter craft (if it had a non-combat origin that is).

Most of all though that render makes me think of Lego. I wonder if a Lego eclipse could be built? Might be a project for later...

We had the idea of a Lego Pyro model earlier. The Eclipse may actually be a pretty good Technic model given that it transforms its shape.

Pyros are a lot of fun in Lego. I came up up with one a couple years ago in their digital designer that I was pretty happy with.
The eclipse though, for a medium-small model at least, it looks like Lego Star Wars is already half way there :) :

Hmm, not to change the channel - but racing maps might also be an
interesting venue, for those into that sort of competitive gaming! :D

Ahhh... Yoshi knows where I'm coming from. I told Seb for this skin I wanted a "snow plow tearing down the NY State Thruway on a February night" look as a base. I figure after buzzing thru a couple of underground mining tunnels, those leading edges would get pretty banged up so having hardened industrial replaceable plates would be an essential feature of this paint job. Good eye!

Yep used to to take the thruway from Massachusetts all the way to college in Ohio. I've seen those snowplows plenty of times. This skin definitely looks tough.

Ah nice. I grew up in the Finger Lakes area. Would take it west thru Canada to get to Michigan for undergrad, and head the other way to Cambridge for grad school. Stupid tolls!

So were the tolls worth driving paid for roads? :?
I've been on some roads that could use a toll! ☺

BTW, that front view almost looks like some
kind of hovercraft but without the skirts! :D
