Design sketches from over the years for the Zfighter. 

This is the first sketch of the Zfighter, done in MS paint on a tablet.

Most of these sketches were made prior to the first attempt at modeling the ship in 3D. 

The Zfighter is intended as a lower tech space fighter operating from orbit and not interplanetary space unless supported by tankers and carriers.

This is the first object I ever built. The first version I made was a heavily modified version of the Lightwave spacefighter. I had altered the proportions of the original object to the point where it was no longer recognizable. In addition, I had constructed a new cockpit, canopy and a crude pilot.  The fighter ship was featured on the I-CON 13 television ad. Unfortunately I lost this object years ago. I plan to remake this object from scratch.
