First of all, I must give credit to Adam Burch, whose work I drew inspiration from. Images of his version of the Cerberus Class Frigate and a description (mine basically uses the same principles as his) can be found at the link provided below. Second, I must further state that I am nowhere near as talented as he is. My work here is merely a reinterpretation of his model. Everything in this model was made by me with the exception of the engine bells on the aft end of the ship, which I borrowed from the Dragonfly Light Freighter model (I'm not sure who the creator of that model was anymore, as it looks like it's no longer on the warehouse).
On a side-note, I decided to name this craft after the great science fiction writer, Robert A. Heinlein, and to have it operated by the United States Navy instead of the Air Force. I'm sorry, but I've always been partial to the Navy.
UPDATE (02/20/14): I have added a few new features to this model: I have added a robotic arm to assist in rescue missions; The radiators on the aft end are now modeled (they are designed to swing out to dissipate heat away from the ship); There are now two thrusters on the forward section of the ship; Most of the windows now have shields to protect them while in transit; The hatches on the "upper" section of the forward end now have more detail; I have added an array of sensors near the bridge and the cannons. I will add more to this model in the future.
