Minmatar frigate by ACXtreme Minmatar frigate by ACXtreme
Please download for full detail.

Minmatar frigate.
I'm sorry but I didn't have time to texture it.
Life in university ain't easy... so imagine it in Minmatar colors.

Short story:
When the engineer first approached the Brutor Tribe for their financial support of the prototype, the leader almost choked at the table laughing... then later when he found out, the engineer wasn't joking, he killed him.

The idea of the ship apparently was to strip the vessel of anything not related to speed, that meant: smaller cargobay, lighter capacitor batteries, more efficient power-plant, 0 armor and minimal hull bulkheads. The only thing left unmodified were the engines that received their power straight through the powerplant. Because of the insane speed and minimal protection, even Minmatar pilots them self didn't dare to pilot it, as the smallest bump on entering warp or getting shot at, usually meant the shield generator blades getting unbalanced and stuck between the plating, causing the ship to explode on itself...
So the design was exported to pod-pilot market, as they didn't have to worry about the dieing part.

Since then, pod pilots have even found an ingenuity to balance the shield-generator blades out with carefully placed duck-tape patches, minimizing the dieing part noticeably.

it's ironic that when I put a lot of effort in to something like my yacht, ppl say it's good.
It's only when I rush something out that takes 3-4 hours that ppl think is amazing!

Ship looks great, but i think you goofed on the right angle. Seems you have 2 Lefts. Hope you get this and can make the changes soon so as not to be disqualified

I would actually like to see your ship in game. The idea of exposed and minimal armor would make great for a fast ship and I would personally get a lot of use from it.

The more I think about it the more I like it too,
Might make a cruiser sized ship next with exposed parts, if I have the time.
I'm at school at the moment even though it sunday :'(

dude I would by a battleship if there is one. But I thing as you get higher in the chain your going to have to be creative around the hard points.

Too clean for a Minmatar vessel =p

But the primitive look (namely, the various "scaffolding" around it) of it fits the Minmatar very well...needs more RUST! :evillaugh:
