However, there's a couple of details that are throwing me off:
- First is the cockpit, in your version it is looking very long, as opposed to the original. The good thing about the original cockpit shape is that it gives the Ptah a sort of aggressive "stance", something that IMO gets lost in your interpretation, sadly.
Weeell, we may have a problem here because I've made that on purpose because I think that it gives it a MORE aggressive look.
The retail Ptah's cockpit glass points downward too much to my taste.
This is how I see the situation: the original cockpit glass is facing downward too much. Mine is more centered. Here's a picture:
The arrows represent the eyepoint. Mine is higher 'cause it's on my pilot eyelevel. And I can't get the pilot lower without parts of him going through the hull.
So I don't think I'll be changing that.
On the other hand,
- The gun pods look more triangular in the original (green lines in the attached image). Again, helps with the aggressive stance.
I'll give the triangular shape a try when I get to detailing the firing points.
Thanks for your suggestions!
