Cyberion has prepared a zip with a variety of things for Razor Fans. The package contains the lightwave files for his model, a 1024x wallpaper and a 2 megabyte test video of the Razors in motion. You can grab it all here.
I modeled it especially for the video sequences, so it's originally high detailed and should look just great in video. I always dreamed to model this ship and here it is. The model is of a high quality, although the textures aren't. I'm not a drawer so excuse me for this part.
Animators will find the ship pretty flexible. I've made every part of it on the different layers, so if anyone wants to blow ship into the pieces, he may do it. In time I want to make a test video of blowing the ship apart. First goes engine, then wings, than Coller system, cockpit and so on..... it falls apart in other words. The multiple layers of this model allows you to do it. ;-)
