Scarborough Design

Post by charles » Tue Feb 15, 2011 11:32 am

You know. After reading all the news posts, I'm aware that David goes to a lot of trouble to make sure the interior and exterior of his ships match up. He did this with the Prospero where he wrote of how he created a basic outline of a theatre and inserted it into the ship, or built the ship around it, so that it made sense in the layout of the exterior, even though he never showed the theatre stage.

The Scarborough is doing this brilliantly. In the recent pages with Kari and Whisper I thought Whisper was walking from the Bridge, but after she mentioned coming from Daniel's room I took another look and realised the curvature matched for us looking from the front, towards the back of the ship.

If you look at the windows you can even work out that Daniel's room is the first two, larger windows directly above the back of the Stabaliser's join to the ship. Note the groove on the left side of the larger window, looking from the outside, which continues above and below the window in both the close and far view.

Just a question. Is there hanger and repair section for fighters?

The Scarborough

I was wondering if The Scarborough will be placed among the listing of Ships in the Database. I am curios about the strength of its' three pairs of cannons.

I am sure there is a lot we don't know about The Scarborough.
The layout of Scarborough was carefully thought out, it is sad to see it being "decommissioned" so fast by the ending of the comic.

Maybe we will see something new on Christmas? :)
