I like it. Maybe have it that the cockpit can rotate when it goes into landing mode.Had a go at modelling something which could work as a ship launched fighter.
One thing I think is really missing from ED is ships with a vertical orientation. I presume that's mainly because of the constraints on landing but I figured SLFs can be a little looser so long as the ship still fits in the slot. For that reason I made the ship fold up for landing, hopefully enough that it can fit in the slot.
My dream is that one day Frontier will open up mod tools to get some user-made ship designs in game... But for now I figured I'd just post this and see what people thought
