Updated Daedalus in flight

I see that things are starting to appear from the BIS Icarus project, to review and update the plans for a credible mission to another star, (Previously Daedalus). One concept was a relatively minor update to the original Daedalus concept, removing the staging, but using drop tanks for the fuel. “Starship Resolution”. This was not studied in detail, so I have feelt free to make some adjustments! Mainly removing the plates between the tanks, so that they can be stacked more closely together. This is basically a kitbash from my previous Daedalus model.

I studied astronomy at University College London, but failled to get my degree. For many years pre-internet, I ran the bulletin board "Starbase 1", which is why you will frequently see me referring to myself as that! I am currently on the board of the IAAA. I operate exclusively in digitals using many different software packages. Most often Lightwave 3d, Vue, Photoshop Elemnts, Affinity Photo. I also ejoy oddball graphics packages like Xenodream, Amberlight, aqnd others.
