I want to go foward with this design unless there is just a total explosion of hate from you guys, so be kind.

If only the boom was a little longer- that is all that it really needs.
As it is, the ship seems kinds 'squished' ATM. Of course, that could be the way that I associate with the need for the longer boom from the old-style mini and the SSD.

Now, the detail is EXQUISITE and the new rear hull has much nicer lines... so it's not like it's a big complaint. This ship is a beautiful interpretation of the Hawk series.

Regarding the RX phasers, SPP wrote: I could swear I saw it, but I have looked at the pictures again and it is indeed missing.

Perfect IMO.

Looks more Romulan and less Klingon or phalic.

Prefer this over the original art.

This is going to get expensive fast.

I'm all about it! I'm not really a Romulan player, but I love the Romulan ships. I have always wondered what the Sparrowhawk looked like and thought "meh". But this model is beautiful! I'm un-meh-ing even as we speak Very Happy

Looks fantastic - should it be slightly (and I do mean slightly) larger? Won't die in a ditch if it isn't though.

I know what's going on my Xmas list!!

I would have preferred the ront hull to be a bit longer, getting more toward the current official art work, but that's me.

The winged engines really show the Klingon influence too.

I have to echo Paul's sentiments here.

I would like a longer neck... and maybe a bit of a curved approach (althoughat that point you're approaching the Firefly look)

The wing/engine definitely shows how the Klignon tech obtained from the Kestrels influenced the design of hte hawks.
