Strike Medium Fighter A10 by karash-amerius Strike Medium Fighter A10 by karash-amerius
Summary
Here is a "Medium" type fighter, although its size could push it into the "Heavy" Category...its lack of armaments keeps this bird in middle weight classes. It is designed more as a garrison fighter for Federation worlds that rely on cheap defense forces. Very nimble for its size, it relies on wolfpack tactics and long operating range to get the job done.

Artist Notes
This is my first full color model in Google Sketchup! Finally bit the bullet and did a lot of studying for this one, and got a lot of inspiration from the folks here at dA. It sort of has a “racer” type paint job, but that is just the colors of the squadron it belongs to – XRAY. I spent at least half the total time in doing the cockpit, which really does not come across here in 2D screen exports, but it was fun to do nevertheless. For those with a keen eye, yes, I didn’t get everything matched up with the fuselage so there are a few holes in the front…lesson learned! This model taught me a ton of things for being so simple looking.

And just for the record, I have no idea what the light is for on the bottom of the craft…it was originally going to be a communication antenna area, but the mouse argued with me so that’s the result. Maybe I can do some landing gear on my next model.
