Famous Origin artist Denis Loubet is back with a new Wing Commander item. He's been experimenting with 3D printing for some time, and we've been excited at the possibility of something out of the WC series. The Terran Confederation Medal of Honor has been at the top of our list, and that's exactly what's on the docket here. A prototype design has been put together as a type of pin, but LOAF has gone one step further and found the exact type of ribbon necessary to make it perfect. They still need to work out the details of how the two components might be attached, but this is already a great start. We can't wait to see the finished product!
Sorry for the long wait, but I finally created a 3D printing file for the Terran Confederation Inter-Congressional Medal of Honor! You can order it now, but before you do I want to ask the forum what kind of attachment to the ribbon do you want on the back of the medal? Note that the thing I'm selling is only the ringed planet part of the medal. It will take people with more cosplay-cred than I have to complete the medal with the full ribbon and pin treatment.
But there you go! For such a simple design, it was surprisingly difficult to get it just right. I wanted the rings to be flat, and yet look like they're going behind the planet. That required some tedious tweaking, but it finally paid off. Right now I have it only in the steel materials, but if you scroll to the bottom of the material list you can see the Polished Bronze looks really nice. Of course it's correspondingly more expensive. :-(
