The Stingray is in House Steiner colours and the Corsair was suppose to be in Davion colours but I learnt that they are yellow not red. However the red colouring is so striking so I kept it. The yellow was not good enough.
So one can say its a squads' colour.
They may not look exactly like them but are modified to be feesable. Most of Battletech's aerospace fighters are poor designs but some are utter jems like these.
Things like the Sparrowhawk, the Corsair, and the Leopard were pinched and reworked from Crusher Joe - showing its the owners with no vision.
Having said that, I so agree that some reworking is needed to make them feel more; but again that's down to the powers that be
Cheers my friend for popping by and commentating
With that said, there was also the blatant tip-off of other's designs. That shows that when push came to shove, they lacked artistic vision and even integrity.
Always my pleasure, mate!
Cheers very much sir
Well to be honest, the Corsair was a rip off of a Crusher Joe fighter. In addition, lets be honest about Battletech - accuracy and intelligence are not their strong points....
Hey, you're not rid of me that easily!
"accuracy and intelligence are not their strong points"... I know just what you mean. I've lost track of the number of designs - BattleMech, vehicles, you name it - that have glaring discrepancies in ammunition, placement of weapons, and other f***-ups of truly breathtaking level.
One of my favourites has to be the equipment layout for the Clans' 'Jenner II' machine, which states that it has eight jump jets. Four in each leg. Which... on the boardgame's 'Mech record sheets... means that the Jenner II has to have its feet and lower legs chopped off to fit the jump jets. That's just one of many, many examples I can cite, but I'm sure you don't want me to start frothing at the mouth...
Glad you love the weapons fire, I thought it was rather impressive too!
Thank you very much for your wonderful comment and taking time out to visit
I am glad you like these, enjoy!
And thank you for taking time out to comment and visit
You really got the knack for designing real space
I also highly agree with your leaving the Corsair red. Would look a lot less impressive in yellow.
Tell the truth it reminds me of the Battlestar Galactica "Viper" but, eh, the Marauder reminds me of the Glaug Battle Pod as well. *cough cough*
As for the the Viper reference - same thought too!!
Cheers for visiting!
Such is life.
