It keeps getting better, Howard!
I pity the Kat that takes a direct hit from one of those turrets... they're huge! I think this shot
really puts them in perspective. Also in that shot, do the launch bays have dual (redundant?) force fields?
The engines ooze raw power; the layout reminds of the rear of a Star Destroyer. Out of interest, do we know if the Bengals use a different or unique propulsion system as they don't seem to have the anti-matter intakes seen on certain other (some older) capital ships, such as the Yorktown class, Concordia class, Sheffield class, etc?
Is there any chance when you've finished this baby of putting together a brief flyby animation to show it off, perhaps with a Hornet sweeping round and coming in to land? A bit cheeky maybe, but an HD (say 720p) render would be great!
