Interesting. Large ships in Traveller were often called skyscrapers because they were aligned internal gravity with maneuver drive thrust. That is, each deck was perpendicular to the direction of forward motion, so forward equals up. So if artificial gravity fails while under acceleration, at least you'll intuitively know which way you're going to be pulled.

Warships were armored, of course, and were thus armored skyscrapers. The skyscrapers pictured would make good Traveller warships.

The idea of armoured skyscrapers makes me think of Judge Dredd and Megacity One. Just not in 6mm.

What are these made from? Matboard?

They would make a nice base for transports\dropships.

Thanks! I'm glad someone else see spaceship potential :) And yes they are laser cut matboard.
