First, let me say how much I love this! The subtle weathering and that superb damaged nacelle make this distinctive and amazing.

My only critique is that you've got the torpedo pod on backwards. Looks a bit odd.

Easily fixed though.

Yes, I noticed as well that the torpedo pod is on the wrong way. But I glued it on already )-:

I love seeing battle damaged stuff and cutaway type of stuff

Nice battle damage showing the nacelle guts.  Great job on this.

Even though the torpedo pod is backwards from what we would expect to see I guess there is no reason it could not be mounted the other way for rear defense or attack after a target pass.  After all the runabouts were intended to be highly mission configurable.
