Remember that UK contest to win Christopher Blair's screenworn flightsuit? recurring dropped by to let us know that he indeed was the winner of that contest and has the pictures to prove it! A handful of shots are included below, but head over to Pix's website for more images in higher resolution. You can also thank recurring for stopping in to share his awesome collectible at the CIC Forums.
Hi guys, I stumbled across this thread via googledust and thought I could help. I won that competition however many years ago it was and wanted to offer whatever photos you are after for references. :) I took a load and sent them to that chap who runs Pix's Origin Adventures, who has posted them all at their original resolution. The specific post is here.
Wing Commander Movie Model Rundown
Atherin has been busy recreating nearly every ship in the Wing Commander film using SketchUp.

Check Out Spanish Wing Commander Armada
Christian Klein has found another rare and exotic Spanish Wing Commander translation by DROSoft. His last couple finds were for WC1 and the Secret Missions, but this jumps all the way forward to Armada. It would be a treat to see how they changed the Voices of War manual and how the English and Spanish versions would mesh over multiplayer. (2018-05-22)
