The Kilrathi kick continues for the Secret Ops Model Upgrade Pack with another brown durasteel capship. This time the Fralthi II joins the fray, which actually stars in the beginning of Prophecy. Our pilots encounter it partially destroyed, which is why we're lucky enough to get the artsy damaged version here. DefianceIndustries is nothing if not a completionist however, so he fleshed out the full thing just to be on the safe side too. Let him know what you think at the CIC Forums.
Fun with Fralthi...too? Here are some work in progress shots of the derelict Fralthi II from Prophecy. The pink is the transparency texture color, so those will be textured with broken hull framing, etc. things that will give the destroyed ship some more detail.
Just kidding. Today actually marks fifteen years of continuous daily WC news updates. The last day we missed was May 25, 2003, short of the occasional technical issue that may have slightly delayed the daily news a bit. (2018-05-26)

Wing Commander Movie Model Rundown
Atherin has been busy recreating nearly every ship in the Wing Commander film using SketchUp. There's really not much missing - we don't see the Kilrathi Concom, Diligent or some of the small background items, but just about all of the other major stuff is there. It's a pretty nice lineup!
