    Hello my friends!

    After a long delay, I'm working in new projects about Wing Commander, one is a Arena Ships after a advent of Arena Extraction Models.

    I use the methods, described in Arena Extraction Topic for produce a paper models, and the results are excellents...

    I use Ogre Mesh Viewer in combination with 3D Ripper to convert the mesh, after I'm import to 3D studio, adjust the mesh to real shape and put the textures. All pieces for all variants of Rapier exist in a single model, but is a separate objects, and need a adjust in texture map to display correct. I prepare the 3D object in 3D Exploration, and convert in COB format to reading in Metasequoia LE.
    For build a paper model Arena meshes is a perfect, because this models is not a high poly. The basis model of Rapier have a 700 faces in total. I made adjusts in meshe to build and unfolding in Pepakura Designer 3. This scale is 1/100. I believe in next week this model is avaliabe to download in Paper Commander.
