    The spoiler just makes me laugh. It make no sense at all but it does fit the ship design.

    I know, right? :D

    I showed the ship to my brother, and we agreed that we probably played too much Need for Speed games as kids :)

    Although, this ship is meant to be able to enter and fly in planetary atmospheres, where the spoiler would have an aerodynamic effect (likely a catastrophic one, lol).

    I feel like the 'spoiler' would make sense for fine attitude adjustments to level flight in atmosphere as thrust vectoring via the pods might be to aggressive.

    Finished this ship around the same time I got through all three seasons of the Dark Matter series it drew inspiration from, indirectly.


    Here's a shot of the new Isaac-class hovercraft resting in the (unfinished) shipyard of the MIC-583 mobile industrial complex.

    Isaac's core room -- asymmetrically layed out within the interior, with its own set of windows -- is one of the most atmospheric I ever built.
