First step is to apply rounder to the basic shape of the ship. I've got the main hull and wings done. For the reactor, I applied rounder then copied the vertices along one line to another layer. I made a polygon with those vertices and lathed it into the new reactor, using more sides to smooth it out obviously.

The bow has been closed off; the original model had an inset with the cargo doors, creating an indented nose. I'm going to borrow the idea of the combination airlock/ramp from Serenity, so there may or may not be a recess in the nose. We'll see once I work out the actual design of the ramp. And that may not happen until the cargo bay interior is built.

Those who say it can't be done,
should stop interrupting those of us who are busy doing it!
