I have finally got the first deck completed. This is a large Jump 2 freighter with over half it’s displacement weight available for cargo.  It has a large crew of over twenty and sometimes carries supernumerary passengers.  It has excellent crew facilities and accommodations – including a large lounge and gym.  It is streamlined and with it’s contra-gravity generators is able to land on planets with atmospheres.  Landing legs (not shown) are located on the base of the vessel.
