Looks neat, but the scaling is off. The Valkyrie types are some of the smallest battlestars in the Colonial Fleet. The ship should be the size of that entire "Columbia" flight pod.

Normally, I would agree with you.  However, according to the fanfic by :iconunited-systems-navy: the Valkyrie types, and thus the Vindication are much larger. (united-systems-navy.deviantart…).

The perils of fanfic, the laws of not only physics but canonicity take on a certain 'flexibility'...

Really nice work, and an interesting idea.

That ship aint going to be able to fly a straight line anymore with that one sided mass. But hey it's operational again.

Most of the source components are by David "CanisD" Breidis. The bulk of his work across several genres can be found at the Wolf's Shipyard site [link] and its forum [link] . In addition, many of CanisD's works are meticulously posted here on DeviantArt by ~Wolfman-053 [link] . Beyond that, the only real trick is a bit of imagination on how to recombine or alter components and then making those adjustments in MS Paint.

It's kinda growing on me too, I may have to create a version where the older style pods are not simply add-ons but actually part of the design.

I may have a few ideas for that type of vessel, reservist and armed civilian militia type colonial vessels; The Militiastar.

It ain't pretty but all that matters is if it works for it intended purposes.
