Elite: Dangerous may not have the stellar crowdfunding cashflow enjoyed by rival sandbox space sim Star Citizen, but the £1,802,698 raised for David Braben's series revival is enough to keep him earnestly talking to camera about the team's progress. Now, Frontier are giving us a further hint as to what the game will look like, with a selection of screenshots of their Sidewinder ship.

It's the first real look at the game since the teaser footage of the Cobra Mark III ship posted back in January. Frontier aren't saying much about this new design, but promise it will lead to a reveal feature, due "soon".

Elite: Dangerous is due out next year.
