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.
