Oh..... my.... goodness....

It's beautiful... 

I find myself unable to express my feelings about this ship. 

Love at first site is real... because I fell in love with this ship at first site. Razz

The Designer's Evaluation

on Sat Feb 21, 2015 6:55 pm
Let me start off by saying I find it rather ironic the Zeerover is the one to be refitted by S-H; TBCH, the Plunderaar (as it was called then) was one of my least favorite of the entire batch. I had no idea everyone would like it or the "refit" that much. Razz

That said, on to the ship at hand. The Banshee is, in some ways, the polar opposite of the Zeerover Beta: it's slick, clean, hi-tech... basically, everything the Zeerover isn't. Razz I love the new nacelles; the shape is great, and I really like trans-purple. Razz I absolutely adore what you did with the red syringes, the boxes built into the hull, the top and bottom bridge- pretty much everything. Heck, even the coloration is a straight-up improvement! My gut reaction was to call it some reverse-engineered police variant of standard Zeerovers, it just has that killer look. Razz

Alas; while the ship is overall amazing, as original designer, I have some minor nitpicky issues. Razz Firstly, it has no impulse engines- or nav. deflector, for that matter. It's a minor thing, but it's somewhat of an oddity thematically. Razz Secondly, the underside of the saucer is slightly flat without any kind of protruding bridge structure, though this is quite possibly me. Razz Aaaaand... that's about it. As I said, I was really digging for issues. Razz

Overall, fantastic remake, I must say. Aside from a few minor things from the creator, stellar work!

I'd say it's the epitome of no studs showing.

Two words: it's GORGEOUS! Razz

Seriously though, this is one awesome bit of kit. Aside from the stern looking a bit boxy, I can't find anything wrong with it. Very Happy Those off-center cannons/sensor arrays are beautiful. This is definitely one of my favorites of yours. Razz
