Strike Light Fighter B19 by karash-amerius Strike Light Fighter B19 by karash-amerius
This is a light strike fighter from the 43rd "Hell's Stallions" SpaceWing of the Republic Navy. This ship was built to be highly maneuverable, and easy to re-configure by ground crews. While the top speed is not in the interceptor class, its ability to change vectors and get guns on target makes it more of a "knife fighter".

The "Stallions" are primarily known as a light fighter squadron that specializes in screening formations and engagements ahead of the main strike force. They have seen action in every major war over the last 300 years...earning its reputation as the "tip of the spear" by numerous fleet commanders.

Artist Notes

I really like this bird. It started out as a capital ship engine, but then I said to myself "hey, this looks like an A-Wing"...and it sort of took off from there. The paint scheme is asymmetrical, and I really wanted to try that out this go around. Hopefully it looks OK to most people, but I dig it a lot. My thought process was "How do you camouflage in space?", and I thought with all the laser fire and weapons going off, something like this might be considered camouflage in the middle of a battle.

It is too bad that 2D jpegs cannot really show off your model that well, but I tried to take the best shots I could get. I actually have a version of this with landing gear, but when I designed the bottom of the craft, I really should have thought of gear in the first place as those rocket launchers are in the way.

Learned a TON on this I need a break :)

Nice looking ship and tight model. As for the camo it reminds me of dazzle camouflage they used in WW1 & 2.

I looked up dazzle camo, and now I remember seeing that a lot in books when growing up. Maybe I can dazzle a capital ship if I ever get one completed soon :)

Not sure how well it will work in space (not sure how well it worked on water) but gives a good asymmetrical look to things. Good luck with the capital ship and hope not too many nights of sleep lost to get it done.

Hey Bacchus,

I will have to look up dazzle camo on Wikipedia or something, never heard of it :) Thanks for stopping by and the comments!

Looks solid. Not like those flimsy boyish adventure ships you see in movies.
Good work.
