Some more WIP shots of one of my favourite of all Traveller vessels – the 50Dton Modular Cutter. I was first introduced to deck plans for this ship in Supplement 7: Traders and Gunboats.
In recent years I got the GURPS Traveller supplement dedicated to this vessel. One of the better GURPS Traveller books, it is chock full of plans for cutters, cutter modules for every application and jump shuttles for moving modules from star system to star system.
First off, plan views of the modular cutter showing the vessel with and without a module attached.
Side on views of the same vessel with a crewman for scale.
Coming next – deckplans and some of the more common modules encountered.

Finished these last night. Hope you can get some use from them. For Traveller players, fuel storage is in wings. MS Paint is a pretty simple tool but I am quite happy with the results I got from it.
I had fun doing this, although it took longer than I thought. Might crack out a bulk carrier next.
I got bored painting and decided to draw a star ship. This is my version of the Type A2 Far Trader from Traveller. Deck plans will follow. All done in MS Paint because I cannot figure out how to use almost any other paint package. The style is hopefully a bit like the ships that this guy draws. He does some of the best deck plans around – I love them. I hope he goes along with the idea that imitation being the sincerest form of flattery because I copied his style as much as I could with the drawing package I have. A few cut and pastes from his png files as well. The guy is a master.
The Type A2 Far Trader is a small merchantman that carries four crew, six or so passengers and cargo.
The eagle-eyed among you will notice that it bears some resemblance to the Denoba class from Space Opera. No apologies.
I was going through old files on my laptop and found a deck plan I did of a 600Dton Aslan Clan Transport. I think I copied it from a picture in the GURPS Traveller rulebook. The great Traveller sci fi artist Jesse de Graf did this wonderful image of the vessel.
Here is the deckplan. Hope it comes in useful. Note: the crew module has two levels. Only one level shown on the plan for the FTL drive.I also did a version in case you use FTL drive in your game rather than the Traveller Jump Drive.
