New Hornet Model Released Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

Travis Baldree, inspired by Howard Day's impressive design, has been working hard on a Hornet model of his own. The final result looks very nice. Although there are some similarities with Howie's ship, elements such as textures were actually made from scratch for this version. If you're involved with something that could use a solid old light fighter, Travis has made his craft available here (2.1 megs).
Anyway, it's about 2800 polys and includes diffuse, specular, illumination, and bump maps. This should be game suitable and easily integrated into an existing mod project, and you are free to do so if you like, no strings. I've packed up a version with the textures, as well as a MAX7 mesh and a 3DS for anybody without MAX. Apologies for any shoddiness - I'm not the finest modeler/texturer, more of a code-monkey. Feel free to use this in whatever you want - hope you have fun with it!

Hornet Day Continues Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

There's something about the Hornet that keeps drawing people back. Maybe it has to do with it being the first craft that many of us flew in the original Wing Commander. Previously we posted high res scans of the WC1 Blueprints for those that could use another detailed look at them. Howie's classic model is also available here. Using that same model, Tim Peel created a fantastic wallpaper a while back, and SabreAce made one too. Alpha 1-1 even built a Hornet out of balsa wood. A super stylized version appeared in this ad for the SNES Secret Missions. The trusty little fighter also made appearances in screenshots for a number of fan projects over the years.
