The engines are definitely much better than before and still have that B5 feel. Bravo!

Whatever else these engines evoke from the various viewers, they speak one word very loudly:

Thanks, the RCS thrusters are based on some of the rocket engines I saw in this thread, which was frankly an astonishing model and gives fuel for anyone wanting inspiration for some nurnies. And yeah the guns are based on the Galactica's anti aircraft guns, gotta love the Big G.

Anyhoo, got the thing broken down into instancible bits and applied some basic textures to it (basically just the original textures, these will change in time) Now there is some colour on it I dont like that bit on the top edge of the shell where there is quite a sharp edge, I think I'll have to re-think that bit...

I'm not getting much time to work on this at the moment so updates may be slow.
