Now that I look and think again, Gavin, it would work like that. GREAT ENGINEERING!!!!!

Thanks.
As I saw it the wings and pods are housing manoeuvring jets and sensors etc. the bottom/rear actually mechanically splay out as pads to spread the weight but thats all under snow here. The main propulsion is from the centre beneath the main body.
The way in is more accessible from the landing pads than vertically up the main body somehow. The wings/fins are actually quite chunky and large enough to accommodate a lift/elevator or passageway into the main body of the craft. (I like to think about these things!)

This has a WONDERFUL Homage Look to the Science Fiction films of the 1950's and the Artwork of Chesley Bonestell and Frank Kelly Freas.
The only problem is, Why is the crew ingressing/egressing through a propulsion unit?

I too have seen this image previously and agree with Nick Stevens' comment. The visual concept is thought provoking and I particularly love the painterly effect. It reminds me of some of the classic early space magazine and science fiction novel covers which influenced me.

Regards,

I think it gives the eye a rest from all that blue. red is also a very strong colour and this tiny bit is almost enough to balance all that icy blue. A warm red is also a contrast to all the cool blues and balances out the other warm yellow area of the galaxy. Pleased you like it.

I think I remember seeing this on the IAAA list, and admiring it there. The red light near the tail really helps bring this picture to life for me, (though I do not understand why).
