GGE Seagull Mk. II Utility Shuttle [BB21]

The Seagull Mk. II is a redesign of an old build. The original Seagull has been scrapped for about a year, but I got the inspiration to redo it after a couple recent additions to the GGE Navy (to be posted soon, hopefully).
Original version
Show
This is the cleanest pic I could find.
Image
The Seagull is modular so it can serve a variety of roles, including assault, search-and-rescue, and reconnaissance. It is commonly equipped with advanced electronic warfare systems to jam enemy sensors and provide long-range radar information. Weapons systems can be mounted to a variety of hardpoints as needed. Alternatively, searchlights and medical pods can be used in a Medevac configuration.
Configurations
Show
The base model is minimally equipped, with just two forward cannons.
These are used for purely logistical roles.
Image

The Medevac model has additional searchlights and an advanced sensor suite, as well as additional wing-mounted medical pods for transporting patients. Two patients can be under active medical care in the rear cabin, and two patients can be carried in stasis on the wings, in addition to passengers with minor injuries in the front cabin.
Image

A common assault configuration is equipped with 3 PDCs providing full coverage of the Seagull, twin rocket pods, and ship-to-ship torpedoes, as well as electronic warfare equipment. This configuration provides flexibility for dense combat situations, while maintaining the ability to carry marines or perform rescue operations.
Image
The front cabin accommodates a crew of up to five, depending on the mission profile. A pilot and flight engineer are the typical minimum crew. The front is equipped with a small galley and weapons storage. The rear serves as an airlock for EVA missions, an emergency medbay, crew quarters, or passenger and cargo space.

The Seagull serves as the beloved workhorse of the GGE Navy, keeping supply lines open, scouting the battles ahead, and saving countless lives from the dangers of space. For the weary warriors of the GGE, no sight is more welcome than a convoy of Seagulls arriving with critical supplies and reinforcements.

favorite feature is probably the double-bars connecting the wings to the body

Style - 10
Very legible shape and believable craft. There is too much NPU to point everything out. Angles are great

Substance - 10
Multiple loadouts is a nice touch and the craft is packed with play features. Impressive how much you are able to fit in without bloating the build

Photography - 10
Photography is top notch, and the graphic seals the deal

Boast, Tie-Breaker Category - 9.5
So much info and story, knocked off half a point because you were too humble about not rubbing this amazing build in everyones' faces.

Overall Score - 30 + 9.5 tiebreaker
This is what dreams are made of

This is a GREAT ship - would gladly build this same design for a cameo faction. Really well thought out.

Substance - 10
Not only looks the part but has the functions to back it up. Presentation is great and all of the components are built in a way to make it obvious what they are.

Photography - 8.5
Overall good photos. +.5 for the starting ship card. Would prefer more natural light and less shadows but overall well-presented.

Boast, Tie-Breaker Category - 9
Great presentation and lore, really captures the feel of a development of design over time. The different modular versions are super cool.

Overall Score - 28 + 9 tiebreaker
Amazing ship - very clean and functional while looking like a a real combat vehicle. I'm definitely going to build one of these.

Great improvements over the original design. I really like the multi-configuration feature.
That 5 seat cockpit is as tight as it can be. Very well done. Wish I could build something like that.
