    Nico job sir!
    But it might have some trouble in close combat, since all his turret guns are on the top? I might suggets adding a turret on each side.

    Thank you for the compliment, I have taken what you said into the design and I have added some guns and power fixtures on both sides.

    Nice build, although I'm not a huge fan of the colours myself, but that's personal taste!

    I would say that this seems like more of a light gunship style to me, I would see fighters as more likely to have fuel tanks, batteries etc. accessible from the outside through access panels, rather than in a walkable interior. By their design, fighters tend to be small craft for short range missions supported by a larger ship. That being said, it makes a good gunship

    The colours where an experiment on different colours instead of a plain grey, it would be nice if we had a paintbrush option that could change the colour of the blocks without removing and replacing them.

    I did start out for a fighter but it just grew into what it became, maybe next time I will get a thinner fighter.

    You can repaint with middle mouse button. You don't have to remove and place the blocks again.

    I am upgrading my ship as after looking at it for a while, I decided it wasn't finished after all.

    I am now working on Dragons Blend Mk II

    Lift thrusters under left wing (4 in total) with power supplied.

    The right wing is the same.



    Front lift thrusters (power supply inside as bottom is landing pad)



    Internal power supply for front thrusters.



    Back up generators and fuel tanks (to feed into the batteries and power grid (note:- the power grid is lined to all parts of the ship and all batteries)

    Above and behind view of Dragons Blend Mk II

    Main changes are two additional main engines (making four on each side) and the thrusters in the wings.

    What can I say it evolved, but it is still smaller than my big builds.

    This will be my wreck that I will put into the game minus any power changes that need finalising.

    It crashed because it's asymmetrical.

    Ha, ha, sorry. Had to make that joke.

    Not sure how long I'd survive those pastel-toned colors as a pilot, but other than that, I'd feel comfy flying it.

    I was thinking of a white colour but thought it would get hidden in a snow planet.

    At this time the blue is a base coat, I am glad you like it.

    make a camouflage pattern that matches the Mars colors, with the bluish vegetation as a complementary color.

    Finished model - my wreak

    The Dragons Blend lands on the reinforced hull and wing supports and has four main weapons to depend itself, one on each wing and two on the roof.

    (Note, the gun on the left wing is missing on the video but I have re added it when I realised I forgot to replace it after the paint job)

    Power - It runs on solar power and batteries using the proximity of 4 blocks for energy transfer and wiring and switch blocks, (note:- this distance might change in the final product).

    There is also a backup generator and storage tanks for those night times that will also feed into the power grid.

    Trust is provided my two sets of four rear thrusters for the main engines and two sets of two thrusters in each wing along with two thrusters below the noise of the ship to provide up lift for take off and landing.

    The is two status pods for resting and a 3d printer for creating things that are needed along with plenty of storage boxes.

    Added on the list and updated with all the necessary details. Thank you for the submission!

    I'm curious about the solar panels on the back of the Dragons Blend, is it for when you are flying away from the sun?
