This is quite the amazing fighter design. It looks somewhat like a venture scout strapped to a warp sled. It's streamlined, smooth, and well textured. It's also heavily armed. Infact, it almost looks like something you'd expect from Tom Paris. This one get's points for creative design and good texture. Perhaps if someone makes a bouy map, this would be a good pick to fly manual, whipping around space bouy's in a space race.
The only thing I don't care for here is the "blob" sticking out the back for the engine. I think a more inboard design (such as vent looking things right in the rear of the ship) rather than one fat one that sticks out whould suit this design more, and make it look more "high tech", as would texturing the actual red surface of the engine so it doesn't look plain smooth red. (give it some grille lines).
You should consider a model of this without the "warp sled". It would make a good delta flyer Mark II, IMO.
