Wing Commander fans have seen quite a few of Klavs' ship renderings over the years, but they don't often get to see behind the scenes before the images are complete. Here's a peek at the Hakaga while it's still being assembled in MODO. It's overlaid with the Fleet Action cover in order to get the proportions right. "Blocking some things out, beefing up some areas. Trying to stay semi-faithful to the Fleet Action cover while going my own way with things. Hope you guys like it!" The second picture below still has a ways to go, but it also shows how much intermediate detail goes into the design before the models start to get textured. And if you didn't see them coming before... these rough images confirm the Hakagas are on their way!
A: It's not easy doing a 3d reconstruction and threat analysis on these damn grainy images Taggart sent us. Couldn't he get in closer, or another angle for gods sake?
B: I'm pretty sure we'll be seeing them up close in a few weeks.
A: ... right. I'll do the best I can, then.
