SWAN model

I posted a sketch of this ship a long while ago and recently decided to take it up again. I'm thinking this is like a high speed x-plane, using lifting body aerodynamics with a hull designed to channel air into a giant compressor-ram-jet-engine (the cylinders in the center) to achieve high altitude and maybe orbit, it'd be like a SSTO. Trying not to overwhelm myself with making everything super practical but it didn't have much going for it before besides being a cool looking vehicle and that only gets you so far. I'm starting with a 3D model to paint over which is pretty standard but I'm actually trying to make the geometry more solid then I normally do. Working in Maya so far and will probably take this guy farther, it'd be cool to try and get it 3D printed eventually! This is my first post in a long time, life has been very interesting, especially lately! I've been staying busy!
