Thanks to a tutorial I found I started making some custom fictional planets in the Gimp 2.8.
These four were created with textures I made from images I took with my cellphone camera. You can take a picture of pretty much anything as long as it has a natural texture. I even took a picture of my hand and used it for a planet.
This is the ESAD Gallios-Class Carrier "Eos Erigeneia".
It is the ESAD standard fighter carrier. I made a couple of concepts but this seemed the best.
This carries the standard L-60 A-01 Fighter air and space-craft as well as some other small spacecraft, like the M40-X.
There is no fancy deployment like in Battlestar Galactica, they just exit trough the hangar-bay airlocks on each side. Each hangar bay can contain up to 8 fighters on both sides. That is a total of 288 fighters always ready for instant deployment.
ESAD Ambassador-Class "Sentinel Prime"
ESAD Gallion-Class Carrier "Eos Erigeneia"
ESAD Sirius Two-class Spacecraft "Neptunae"
ESAD Sirius-class Spacecraft "Aloadae II"
ESAD-C Bokai-class Transport Ship "Argae"
Konay Industries Luxury Star Cruiser "Athena"
ESAD LHL Communication ship "Iphigenia"
L-60 A-1 Standard ESAD Fighter
Here are some designs I made for experimental aircraft in my SPACE 3000 universe. Same style as the Argae, and before that the Athena, and if I were to continue this, before that all the other spacecraft previously made and designed for my SPACE 3000 universe, starting with the Aloadae II.
Both would function as some sort of spy-plane or mobile communications relay.
My new model aircraft arrived today! Unfortunately it always seems to be raining outside when I get a new RC model... that's very annoying.
The aircraft itself looks very good indeed. It is very light and yet has all it needs to fly: throttle, rudder, aileron, elevator.
The transmitter even has a little digital display that tells me how much throttle I'm giving, battery status and how much each axis is trimmed. It's practically a HUD.
