The cutaways are always very impressive (^_^)d - reminds me of one of the “micro-management” SF tactical games at GOG.  Do you ever do animated walkthroughs of the cabins?

Sadly, no. I haven’t messed with animation for several years, and then it was in Poser 6; I use D|S 2.3, which is the highest version my old laptop can run.. maybe after I’ve been able to upgrade, whenever that happens..

Another couple I’ve done. This is a Police outpost station, manufactured by Korvadyne and sold at a discount to governments that buy the Hammerhead.

And then there’s the Korvadyne Station, where they’re headquartered and manufacture/modify crafts for sale. This also represents my first attempt at creating a gas giant planet.

The Wedge Freighter is Korvadyne’s most affordable atmosphere capable bulk freighter. Designed for a crew of four to nine, the stock model has no passenger cabins, instead maximizing it’s cargo capacity with one and a half decks taken by the primary cargo bay.

Capable of carrying 42 to 52 standard medium cargo containers (not recommended beyond 42 as this leaves no room to move them around or access containers not near the door) and still carry supplies for a full crew compliment for up to a year, the Wedge can make the long hauls that bring in a good profit.

The only drawback to the stock model is it’s lack of defensive weaponry, but Korvadyne is happy to mount the weapon systems of your choice, and it already has two turret placements ready and wired to control systems on the bridge. Buy now and get a discount on a pair of Gnat fighters that can ride under the airlocks!

Deck one has the primary loading bay and ramp; cargo containers are taken into the main lift on their way to the expansive cargo bay on deck two.  Beyond the lift is the pantry with four collapsible temperature controlled storage boxes and room for several other containers to supply a long voyage. Through the pantry is an additional airlock with a step ramp to allow crew members to pass should the loading bay be used for extra cargo.

The landing gear assemblies occupy a substantial amount of space on deck one, but their size is necessary due to the height of the Wedge Freighter.


Deck two is the primary cargo hold, with it’s forward section featuring an independent gravity control system (functional planet-side!) allowing for the safe stacking of cargo-containers, as well as a robotic crane lift system. Although the bay can handle fifty-one containers, it’s best to limit a load to 42; this leaves room to move containers around and thus allows access to all contents; any more will mean landing and removing containers to get to specific cargo…

The primary lift has doors fore and aft to optimize the speed of loading and unloading.


Deck three is the primary living space for the crew; the forward section is occupied by the double height of the cargo bay on deck two, but windows allow observation of the cargo bay from the kitchen and dining area (and provide an illusion of extra space in the cramped confines). Primary crew quarters features a bunk room for six, a large head with three showers and two toilets, and an officer’s bunk room for two with private head. Also on this level are the primary airlocks (good for ship to ship, ship to station, or EVA), a small medical bay, primary engineering, hydroponics and a small workshop, as well as the stairs to access deck four.


Deck four is the command deck. Accessed by stairs at the rear, this level has the bridge, captain’s mess and captain’s quarters. While designed for a minimum crew of four, all controls can be slaved to the captain’s station, but this reduces efficiency in high pressure situations (such as combat; evasive maneuvers and weapon systems cannot be activated simultaneously by one person without the addition of crew automations/A.I.s).

Beautiful stuff, as always, inspirational as well. If you ever decide to start selling some of your designs, make sure to let us know.

Really great vehicles!  I really like the layout of the last one.  Starship deckplans are also cool to see.  I particularly like the description of the details and little touches like a window into the cargo hold to give the illusion of great space.  Nice job.

Just out of curiosity, is this still a Davo Appreciation thread?  smile  I was going to post a comment saying how great it is to have such a nice variety of cool sci-fi models and stuff.
