WIP looking for feedback - Friendly Quad Jumper

Post by Bricksky »

You may recognize a similarity of this ship with one (very briefly) displayed on screen during the latest Star Wars movie.

I was inspired to make a more FRIENDLY version of it. but so far its very white, with some other mixed colors on various parts. I'm trying to figure out how to make it more 'Friendly', but haven't really decided what parts to change the color of, and to what color(s) from the friends palette.

You could swap out some of the 1x4 curved slopes for friendly colours, creating a ring around each engine. Perhaps a ring near the front and a ring near the back?

The dark bley would also look better in lavender or something similar.

Lavender or pink stripes along the engines and around the engine where it ends on the back maybe?

Those are all great ideas, I'll definitely have to try them and see what works best.

...and yes, this space craft is literally 4 huge engines, with a pilot seat between them. It would definitely haul ass!

Update:

I tried Pink, Maersk Blue, Magenta, etc, but they were all just too pretty (even for me!)....

So I have settled on a color scheme that is still somewhat friendly, with warm yellow, but not too over the top.

I think this works... What do you think?
