    I've been working in a small grid ship for the last couple of days and this is what i came up to.
    The idea was to achieve a small ship that it's able to make long journeys with air support and cryopods for passenger transportation.
    The challenge was to make all the doors and mechanisms totally automated with custom shapes, with the most appealing movements and shapes possible.

    Some specs
    2- Auto Cannons
    2- 8.8cm HEKC Cannons
    2- Scatter Cannons
    1- AZ Reactor
    2- AZ Batteries
    1- Oxygen Generator
    1- Oxygen Tank
    16- Encased Gyroscopes
    2- Industrial Thrusters
    2- Solar Panels
    2- AZ Ore detectors
    2- Small Cargo
    1- Medium Cargo (With extra ports)
    ~ 155000Kg mass

    Totally automated Cockpit Opening/Closing Mechanism
    Totally automated Landing (descend until the landing gears automaticaly lock themselves) and Takeoff (no pilot action needed)
    Totally automated rear trunk opening/closing

    Impressive. Do you think a version without mods is possible?

    Masterzh: Thanks!! i've seen amazing designs on star citizen so i'm honored that you compare it with those ships.

    Rulin: I'm not sure if it could be done. A lot of key aspects of this ship are dependent on the use of specifics mods. Like the cockpit chair, or the conveyor hinges, ect. So i don't see a possible vanilla version without looking all wonky.

    and last but not least thanks LordAlexkog!

    That is absolutely beautiful.

    Looks so well thought out.

    I'd love to see you make a large ship version of this as well.

    Definitely going to test that guy out.

    I'm playing with different color schemes. But its a pain to repaint ships like this one :S

    To be completely honest I think the original Yellow and gray looks the best.

    However that Blue is kinda cool, maybe darken the blue up a little bit and it might be perfect

    I realy like this ship <3
    I am no big fan of mods in general becouse i like it to build vanilla but the Galente realy is a lovely ship!
    The Cockpit is the most awesome Part IMO. Realy awesome concept.

    Love the shape! I'm especially impressed by your use of the solar panels - usually when anyone uses solar panels for such a small ship it ends up looking like something that was made by NASA or its russian counterpart.
    Not in this case.

    Thanks a lot guys! this comments are making me eager to build more ships! super glad that you like the design.

    Brenner thanks bud for your appreciation, funny enough somebody told me something similar in a ship that i uploaded a time ago in the workshop. It didn't took me not even the half of the time that took me to build this one but it's a cute little ship nonetheless
