4506 Survey cruiser
I had no preconceived idea for this model. I started at the front and worked my way backwards. I already added the sideways sections, although those were early stages. I played with a number of variations until I decided the current setup was best. There was still the backend that was left open. There was still one engine-like part left and my challenge was to find a way to attach it to the body so that it would point to the right direct and conform to the symmetry I had followed for the rest of the model. That required a bit of tinkering. It is not strongly attached but also not weakly so that it would fall off at the lightest touch. The result looks quite nice although there is no particular function for the design so I gave it a generic name.
