Have a WIP. Got stuck.

So:

Something wrong with this picture?

Maybe the lack of a bow?

I haven't been able to find a way of closing up that gap in a satisfactory fashion.

Here's the closest I've gotten:

I'm going for a sort of cross between
Image
and
Image
which is why the dome isn't really acceptable to me.

Anyone got any ideas?

Put a massive gatling gun in there.

Actually that dome looks pretty close to the nose design of the Taiidan destroyer. I think maybe you should just swap out some of those slope pieces for different parts. You're going in the right direction, just keep swapping out pieces until you find a combination you like.

Either that, or a giant missile. Nothing some missile drone can't solve.

So, a starship version of this, basically?

Image

Or a more over the top one of these?

Yeah, I think I can manage. There's at least four places where another full-size turret can go, and maybe half a dozen where a smaller weapon or missile rack could be placed.

Only as a variant, mind. This kind of thing is fun to do once in a while, but I wouldn't want to do it full time.
