Cyberion has been busy since he released his last model. He has not one but three new models for you to play with. They are all based on the Tallahassee cruiser, but two of them have been specially modified for the HTL team.
Well, in the middle of August I was contacted by Raptor, the guy behind the "Holding The Line" WC related sites and I was asked if I'm willing to contribute anything to the further development of HTL sites. We spoke about 3D models of course. Well after short discussion I agreed on helping Raptor to create some nice looking images of different WC ships. Those images required the models of course. So my first task was to create 2 cruisers based on Tallahasse design.
You can download the model files here.
Well I didn't have any of the Tallahasse type cruiser, so I spent a few day creating one.
I've made low-poly count model to use in various games-mods-whatever and the model with a little bit more detail.
When I finished the Tallahasse model, I began my work on those 2 new cruisers. First one was Barham class cruiser, which is 1/3 bigger than Tallahasse type itself. Second one was Stealth Cruiser - Nemesis, which pretty much kept the original design of Tallahasse except some additional parts, which make you to understand that its really the Stealth Cruiser.

New 3D Prints Highlight Gemini Sector Hotness
Sonnich Johannesen has shown off some large scale and beautifully detailed 3D prints from Wing Commander Privateer. The Centurion and (not pictured) Galaxy are from Astrofossil and the Tarsus model was designed by DJFX, who posted some gorgeous pics of his own a while back. The size of each of these is impressive, and Sonnich has posted some neat pictures of these ships coming together on the printer. (2018-02-20)
Paper Cruiser Returns Stronger & Better Armed
Adm_Maverick's Tallahassee papercraft cruiser is back again in a whole new way. This second major iteration improves on the first in a number of ways, including how the main hull fits together. It also has interior components that form the bow-mounted capship missile launcher. (2018-02-19)
Live Wing Commander Jazz Recording A Huge Success!
Origin composer George Oldziey has completed his live recording of Wing Commander jazz music. The event was conducted last week at George's studio in Austin, and pictures from the day make it look like they had a lot of fun! Initial results also sound fantastic, and we're anxious to hear how everything comes together in the finished album. (2018-02-18)
RPS Highlights Origin Fandom
Rock Paper Shotgun has run a neat article on longtime Origin collector Joe Garrity. There's a really interesting Q&A that delves into how Joe got started many years ago buying up spare copies of Ultima games and meeting with their creators. It also highlights some of the good work that fans have done to preserve historic material, such as our 2008 trip to archive Origin source documents at Mythic or the assistance Wingnuts gave Raylight to develop Prophecy for the Game Boy Advance.
