Sisu 01

    Citizen of the Galaxy is one of my favorite Heinlein books but I'd never seen an illustration that inspired a model and Heinlein, as usual, provides no physical description of any ship in the story. However, a few years ago in the post-holiday sales, I acquired a number of oversized ornaments. Most of them were spherical but I also got several of these giant light bulb shaped objects. Recently, it occurred to me that the shape seemed appropriate for the Free Trader Sisu. The Sisu is a freighter so it needs some bulk but it also lands on planet surfaces and passes through atmosphere so it should be somewhat streamlined, too. I thought I could turn this into the Sisu.
