Great looking fleet!

I like the Light Carrier, and I think the Frame hangars/return bays on the flanks are freaking awesome! NPU with the 1x4 slider bar thingee. But something about the "wings" on it bother me, it looks kinda like a turtle, maybe you could make the wings more like the ones on the other Frigates?

First up, thanks Hackjob! I take your point about the Light Carrier -- to me it always looked a bit like a sugar glider. Which I kind of liked, but it did veer towards the cute end of the spectrum. Which is maybe not ideal!

So I switched around the wings, as you suggested. Now I think it looks a bit less sugar glider/turtle, and a bit more retro racing car. I think I like it!

Also, I made an HVA! It was originally a city, but I think the scale is probably off. Orbital refinery? Automated frame factory?

The HVa is very good looking ! Definitely industrial, a moving base of operations for a mining expedition, which relays information and serves a a fall-back area to fix machines, frames etc. maybe ?

Once again, great use of the wings on the Light Carrier. that makes a hell of a fleet.
