Default 3D Prototype Machine

So a few weeks ago I wrote and article for the Apogee News Letter. The money I got from it was just enough to purchase myself a Tevo Tornado prototype machine.

The nose cone in the images is a BT-60 size cone scale up from the original BT-50 size one.

So the real question now is what should I build?

Upscaled Manta Bomber !!!!
Best use of the original cone.
Or an upscaled Attack Craft Orion.

Sorry but this is my version of the cone that I designed for the Asteroid Hunter so it's a little different then the original.

Thanks for the great article John. An upscale Asteriod Hunter would be cool, but I suppose you're looking for something completely different.

Looks close enough to me for an upscaled Manta Bomber.

You could save it for me, and work on those countless other projects you surely need to get to. Otherwise, I like the idea of a Y-wing type of ship.
