A Question of Design  
As I pondered the look and feel of the world I am trying to create for our heroes, I found some interesting articles that sort of relate. The first I found pretty cool as it's about how Alan Moore took rejected architectural designs of the past and used them to create his "Cinderella City."

It's a Bird! It's a Plane! It's Architecture!

The second is about the design of space ships. This article was interesting to me as I am trying to design the spaceship of ranger_rick and his crew of intrepid female mercenaries...not to mention that it's also about the possible new design of our space shuttles.

The Next Shuttle

So...as you have seen I have HQ designs for some of my older groups. I am going to work on the design of the Justice 8 HQ, but if any of you have any sketches they would like to add for their own characters locations or vehicles, I would love to see them. ^_^

Also, if any of you like to design space ships, I would love to see some sketches...*nudge* *nudge*

Da I like to design spacehips. What kind of ship do you want? I have some photos of the proposed Crew Exploration Module, The Russian Klipper and most of the Xprize Contenders including the AirShip to Orbit vehicle.

Just give me a general classification and tech level. Or even just the job it is supposed to do =)
(there is a project to have special forces anywhere on Earth in less than 24 hours right now)

I’m working on a scandalous pinup vacation picture of Toonie fight now but I think I can fit it in.

I was thinking of a starfighter/cruiser that would've been a part of an intergalactic force of "Space Rangers" but is kind of old and modified with bits and pieces.

My idea is that ranger_rick is an ex-Space Ranger who with his partner and mechanic matika had a soft spot for some female shady types (ala mysteryloca, geminiprincess and stillettofem) and broke them out of ranger custody to travel outer space together.

Ranger Rick will be more of the "Zap Branigan" type of character as the females have the brains and take charge of the ship. ;)

Re: Spaceships
So he is above the usual tech level of the Earth heroes ;)

We aren’t talking about launching solid rocket boosters here :p Can it re-enter atmosphere?

Re: Spaceships
I would imagine so....something functional like the Falcon, but with a more sleek military design (yet banged up).
