A few months back, this site featured Mark Kelso's large rendition of the "Invisible Hand" ship from Star Wars. It turns out that during a break while working on that project, he started a smaller project that's also quite large. This model is loosely based on a few Sci-Fi spaceships that the builder liked. The two main inspirations (the Colonial One from Battlestar Galactica and the Imperial Shuttle from Star Wars) for this model both can be spotted here if you're familiar with the source material. To be honest, I wouldn't have noticed the elements that look like those ships if it hadn't been mentioned to me - although this does a good job of mixing those two inspirations, it also stands up as a great ship in it's own right.
