And this is The Phoenix the second. As you can see, it's a lot bigger then the first one and lacking a skin of any kind. The first one sorta had a bit of an accident and it...fell down the stairs...
But although bloodied I was not defeated, so I built it again (also rather coincidentally my characters in my fan-fiction needed a new ship so version 1 timed its downfall rather well) but bigger and in some ways batter than the first.
This one has more internal space but still houses four beds and a control centre. The extra space is taken up by a cargo bay, speeder bay (both at the back) and a larger cockpit with seats for four people. I know it looks a bit sloppy but that didn't bother me at the time. Bigger was better regardless of looks.
So what changed? More guns, more engine, more space, more size, less skin. I still managed to get the retractable landing gear in aswell which I was pleased with.
