Ok,  i admit the community's overwhelming love for the 1000 sparked my interest..  though my intent today was to do a freighter for an upcoming game i am hosting....  I had to stop and spend the last hour coming up with my own version of what a 1000 might look like.   I know everyone has their own opinions,  so please understand this is just my interpretation of what i have seen from the stats (i know many of you may have wanted it to be bigger).  When i do an interior i can show you why i made it the size i did (290 to 1000 jumped from Silhouette 3 - 4) .  I have some ideas for some cool cargo/living areas that use the available space.  I might make two actually.  One that is for a group on the go,  and one for a hot rod-esk cargo vessel.

For a moment I was really worried, as I am the proud owner of a HWK with an luxary seatie, which makes me wonder where everything fits...

 

Then, I remembered that my ship was a HWK-1000 and that meant to be huge, so I can be a smug fellow about my character owning one of very few! XD

I was just wondering what new ship i was going to do today.   I think that the 1000 is in Fly Casual isnt it?  Im afraid i haven't gotten that book yet, how big do they say it is?

 

I'm probably wrong but I was under the impression that the HWK-290 was 29 meters long. So, using the same for its larger cousin, The HWK-1000 would be 100 meters long.

100 meters is pretty excessive.  Even the Gozanti (Sil 5) is around 64 meters long.  I would put the HWK-1000 around the same length as the YT-1300, 35 meters roughly.  It's just a lot more narrow, so it has reduced overall space.  Though it's probably around twice the 290's width.  Overall square footage is probably a bit less then the YT-2000's.  That's my interpretation anyway.

Well,  enough for today..   i changed plans to do a little HWK-1000 work.   I did 1 1/2 Interiors for it.  one utilitarian and one with a lounge option, that same one has a second Navigational seat in the cockpit.   Later i will paint the hull for it.    

 

As to 100 meters..  i also think that is excessive.  Looking at the stats, it only goes up 2 extra passengers than the 290 and encumbrance from 75 to 100,  to me that says its roughly 1/4 bigger.  If you look at my previous post and consider length and with of the 290 and the 1000,  the over all VOLUME is about 1/4 bigger.

spectacular work, Ruakar! Some really nice effects here. I'd be really interested in seeing your method if you ever felt like recording one of your sessions?  ;)

I have only one thing recorded...  ever.. I will post it.  This video time lapse is for an unrelated character and is only the line work and color.  not the concepting sadly, sorry.

 

 

I paint very loosely (very rough) very much like sculpting, chipping away at the shape,  then when i have most of my ideas worked out i do line work and solid color over the concept to clean it up.  Doing ships is pretty much the same.  I will try and record my next ship which might be that citadel cruiser.  or the YT-2400 i started..   The YT was my very first, and I got this far before deciding to do it differently.  I could record that as i go back over it.

These are absolutely stunning. As an aside, does it seem odd to anyone else that the HWkK-290 is a light freighter? If I were shipping some goods across the galaxy, I would definitely not hire a ship that has, like, 30 cubic feet of storage space.

Based on the descriptions in books and online, and the layouts here, I'd call it a "courier ship" or a "package freighter". 

 

It's the kind of ship you hire when a small package (or a person) absolutely, positively has to be there overnight. 

 

Yavin Prime 2 day shipping?

See.. I would have gone with Alderaan.com for the joke.

I though I had spotted a YT-2400 in a hagar bay in your Mos Espa base... I was wondering if you'd map that one too.

When I RE-DO the yt-2400,  i will make a dedicated post to that ship,  but my very first attempt at it is on page two of this topic.  :)

Well, Amazon started out as Cadabra, which was apparently too close to "cadaver" so it got rebranded. After the Death Star, maybe a similar train of thought got Space Bezos (that's close enough to a Star Wars name as it is, I'll just leave it) to change it. I was just trying to think of a jungle-type place, and Yavin jumped to mind.

 

You know, now that we're talking about it... I've been told I overthink things sometimes.

Very well done.  Are you thinking of doing a Citadel?  That's a wonderful ship.

I am actually..  I have let it simmer in thought for a couple of days as i get caught up on my character drawings.  It could also replace the "old Freighter"  ship that i had started that i need for an upcoming game with my players.   I have also been meaning to ask.  Do many people here play online?  My friends are all over the world so we play on Roll 20's site.

I play locally, but this is something every GM needs, ship layouts, in my upcoming campaign they are going to get a shot at a hawk 1000 now i can print it out and allow the players to get a feel for their new ship.
