The Wing Commander Saga FreeSpace 2 mod team has released a set of unused 3D models for general FreeSpace 2 consumption. The set includes the Avenger, Banshee, Vindicator, Durango, Bearcat, Lance and a prototype of the Stormfire gun. The files are four years old, so some tinkering may be required... but it's pretty cool, regardless! Collect them all here (2.4 MB RAR).
