The grand tour of the Starwolf is posted - I rushed to toss it together before I left home for work. It's just a tour of the upper deck. There is a
space in the model below that deck and of a roughly equal size which doesn't have anything in it, so we can assume that area contains cargo, storage,
spare bunks for passengers and/or crew, and the access panel to the engine rooms, which are the big bulgy things aft of the living compartment,and the
two outboard nacelles for steering and landings and such. The outboard engines rotate - they can point up, down, forward, or rearward independently,
or at any angle along that arc. For landings, both point down, and for turns one can point foreward while the other points aft for SHARP turns -
rotate on the axis of the ship sort of turns (yaw). One up one down "rolls" the ship on it's axis (roll), and angled thrusters affect the angle the
nose is aimed (pitch).
main thrust and hyperdrive is provided by the big bulgy thing at the aft. If it were a bumble bee, that section would be the abdomen, where the
stinger is. There is a heavy gun mounted to the top of it, so "stinger" may not be that far off as an analogy!
One of the liquor bottles on the counter is "Maker's Mark", a Kentucky straight Bourbon, made not far from where Macallisterburg was before it's
