New Tarsus Model Makes A Stunning 3D Print Update ID

djfx has created an awesome new Tarsus miniature and also posted it online for fellow fans with 3D printers. The ship is available to download at Thingiverse complete with drop-in detailed modules and a display base. It takes some assembly to finalize, but the results are worth it. He's taken these gorgeous photos of the copy he created and painted by hand. If anyone else puts one together, we'd love to see!
This is the starting ship (Grandpa's Tarsus) from the classic computer space action sim Wing Commander Privateer. If you have a 3d printer, you can make one for yourself. The example shown was printed on a Flashforge Creator Pro.

It's been broken up to print mostly without supports. However there are a couple meshes that will need some support, these are isolated in their own STL file. Requires a significant amount of assembly, I've uploaded exploded and assembled example STL files for reference. I also included a base to mount the finished ship to.

Black Lance Transport Certified For Covert Cargo

After leading the charge with a pair of exotic Black Lance designs earlier this year, DefianceIndustries has circled back around and completed the Evansville class transport that we see in Wing Commander 4. It has a fairly sleek profile for a transport as well as oversized engines, which form a pretty effective combo. There's no better way to sneak clandestine cargo to out-of-the-way places!

Happy St. Patrick's Day From The Green Salthi

Confederation hull plating is well known for its green texture, and terran soldiers even occasionally sport a green tinted outfit, but it's a far less common color on the Kilrathi (aside from the kats that actually have green skin). We know the common brown color of Kilrathi ships comes from the hue of their local durasteel, but there's one major exception to this: the green Salthi - or Jalthi, rather. The Secret Missions for the Super Nintendo had to squeeze to fit everything on the cartridge, and one noteworthy cut was the elimination of the six-shooter Jalthi model. (2018-03-17)
