USB Syntax Error

Skunk woke up one morning early April 2021 and made a sketch on a piece of paper. Designing, refining, researching, Bending tubes, machining copes, tacking without a jig - it was all so much fun to design and make. It took over 160 labor hours to transform sketch into yacht.

Syntax Error has the ability to turn pulsars green, given enough time and relative proximity.

Warp Core Specs

This ship is a no-compromise build from the ground up, in response for the demand for more medium range day missions. It is the sister ship to USB Cloudbuster. While Skunk has taken Cloudbuster on centuries and long range day missions, it weighs 160 pounds and looks like an overworked garbage truck in the daytime.
