A decided to get the K37 a complete makeover. While earlier versions had all the necessary systems, they didn’t really look like a real ship. I did some research on industrial design and came with following model:
I was aiming for industrial look. I added an asymmetric pilot cabin, technical compartments, airlocks, shields for exhaust system and an excavator. A bit of tweaking in procedural textures allowed me to paint beat-up sections of the model for greater realism. It still needs some tweaking, but I think it’s a good starting point for final model.
