I'm considering one and I sure am interested how it looks. I've seen a Moa, Osprey and Caracal and they all look butt ugly. I hope the Blackbird would be the exception.

Nope it's ugly too. If you want a nice looking ship buy a Thorax.

Caracal is one of the nicer looking Caldari ships. Blackbird is nice looking too, but yeah if you want sleek, look at Gallante or Amarr ships. Neither Caldari and Mimnatar ships are exactly "pretty", though they are appealing to me. =]

Amarr ships are boring, nothing much to look at. Just my 0.2 cents.

looks like a flying brick.


that aside, its a great ECM ship, and i dont mind it much. its prettier than the moa (most ships are anyways) and works excellent as a support craft.

All of my ships are Caldari.

If you want good-looks, buy Penthouse.

If you want the best ships in the game, buy Caldari.

Thank you all. While it had little form and function, I was expecting to see something worst. It looked a bit better than I thought.

I think Caldari likes to make ships Handi Cap, if u look at MOA it looks like a Robot wiht a bit Gun in his one Arm, and same is with this Scorpion. Looks like a Missing Arm. Amy

The Blackbird does grow on you a bit. I hated it when I first saw it, but it's startin to look better.

The Osprey, however... well, it just looks like a broken goose.

Caldari frigates, except for the Kestrel and Merlin: Ugly.
Caldari cruisers: MOA = pretty nice (I'm serious!), Caracal = nice, Osprey = ugly, blackbird = decent.
The battleships aren't very beautiful though.

Best ship in game so far: Megathron. Mmmmmm.

Armageddon is far better looking than the Megathron. Although the Mega is a pretty ship.

wow, don't know how to describe the BB...its so..formless.

The Armageddon does not look better than a Megathron imo. The Arm look like a deformed ****er Razz

The Scorpion would have looked better with another wing added to it. It does look unfinished.

The Tempest looks just as unfinished as the Scorpion, look at where the command pod is at. It looks like they said to hell with it and just put a huge beam with a milk carton on the end of it and said we're done. It has a broken sailboat look to it.

I'm pretty sure that's the purposeful look of every minmitar ship. Function over form.

O I won't disagree with the function over form argument for the Minmitar ships. I actually like that tough gritty no nonsense look of their ships. In the Tempests case they should have added a few more support trusses or something. Just to fill up a bit of that void up front.

Haha, you sure are Razz The dominix is a well balanced ship, but it really looks like a Pig on steroids. I got some up close pics of the Scorp, it definitely would have looked better with 2 wing assemblies.
