Speaking of unfinished projects in a related thread...Also trying to make the hull armor around the spar destructible. So far there are 3 chunks cut out of the exterior hull that theoretically could be blown up as some kind of component. Could theoretically work, and since most AI ships target this central point then also theoretically they will damage these parts when the shields go down and will apply "battle damage" thusly. I may model internal quarters voided in the spar section.. I dunno... starting to get in over my level with this part. Going to need interior texturing on this section. Kind of second guessing myself here on the implementation of this.
And yes,I realize it's not "EC"s hangar layout, but DTM's is sensible and I see no point in changing it.
At this point the main armor plating is blocked in, with some very marginal detailing on the front and spar armor. Engine block needs done, as do all other details.
Not looking forward to texturing if I ever get that far.

TBH, I'm not a fan at all. It reminds me of the canon version of the fully plated Y-wing, where there's almost nothing that would actually be supporting the hull plating, and simply adds a lot of wasted volume and mass.
