Yes, from the point to minimize the radar echo to the idea to have a 
good ratio of volume for machinery to hull (vulnerable), there is much 
shown that misses technical justification. Still these designers have 
some creativity I'd like to have as well.

For the planned role to become element of larger scenes this model 
surely will do. For more prominent ships I still will have to work on my 
design skills.

I think I need to make some sort of macro so I can pass sets of 
containers or other cargo elements to the ship model.

Thanks for the feedback!
