The side. I know, I shopuld do something about those Star Wars cannons on the sides, I just haven't thought of anything yet. EDIT (1/01/07): Actually, I have some ideas, maybe Plasma weapons? Magnetic Accelerator Cannons? Solid Ammunition Cannons?
Your other smaller ship was better. I thiink you should lean away from using starwars shooters. They look like that were just stuck on there as a last resort. The front is very good and so it the back. But the wings are where all the work is needed.
