I prefer deploying magnetic funnels on the ends of my launch tubes.

A harrier Jump jet doesn't require tilting, just slow down and activate its vertical thrusters and slowly coast into the landing pad, if you couldn't tilt the runway is the last thing you want to land on.

Looks great Niwantaw... But yet again, you make me feel bad that we don't have Shipyard tools in. :(

Need some help here.

Which turret layout should I use? 2 larger guns or 3 smaller ones?

I like the 2 barrel one better. I'd mix it up though maybe your 2 barrel guns would be your heavy weapons and have smaller 3 or 4 barrel guns that can give you a faster rate of fire

Right quick point:

The Shedim Will suck in space combat. As I've got no idea just how things are going to work out such as turrets, reactors ect ect.

Therefore I'm going purely for the most awesome looking ship I can build with the blocks at hand. :P

In that case, in all honesty I think that the three gun turrets look considerably better than the two cannon ones.
SCIENCE!

Because 5 barrels look rubbish >.> Usually any more than three barrels looks a bit ugly IMO.

The shedim has been in development for nearly four weeks.

It was a carrier from the word go, with a runway from day two.

The only reason the runway was standard plating was because I didn't have heavy plating in W23. However if you ask the devs they'll tell you I was pestering for a darker colour plating for my runway.

So the long and short of it, I started mine before you.

Screenshots (of the date) or it didn't happen :P

But let us not dwell. You decided on the less practical bits yet?  Like a name written in gold? :P
