    I do not remember this ever being shown or posted.
    If it was, do not worry about it.

    Thank you for sharing the site.

    These are models for the game "X-Wing Alliance". They are not buildable models, as far as I can tell. I downloaded a couple and the ".exe" program fails to install because I do not have Star Wars: X-Wing Alliance".

    Oh well that stinks. If you look at the pics they're paper models. interesting. OK you can kill this thread. Make it disappear.

    I've seen that site. XWA is a fanstastic game, easily the best "Star Wars in Space" game ever made (it's basically the end result of the X-Wing vs Tie Fighter series).

    I'm in contact with a different SW modeller on a different site, he's working on a high rez mesh and has said me might give me a copy once he's done. I was going to try to make it into a Pep design. He'd never heard of papercraft, finds it very interesting.

    Perhaps someone should contact the design team, tell them about paper models - they might not even have EVER seen a paper X-Wing - and ask if a format-friendly version of the model is available for somewhere here making a paper version.

    You can tell them they can host copies of the paper versions if they want (publicity and all that). More than that, after hard work they might be DELIGHTED to be able to make physical versions of the ships from their game.

    Hi! I'm DTM. I worked with the XWAUP team to upgrade the X-Wing Alliance PC game. I've just read your post at the XWAUP forum. My hobby is to draw 3d cad models with textures, but sometime I play with paper too: in my leaving room there are a paper AT-AT walker and an ISD downloaded from the sitr of a japaneese artist. In these weeks I'm building the Black Pearl found at Disney experience. Really funny!
    In the past I've already given permission to use my own mashes and textures to someone to build papercraft. I really don't remember his name...but I know there is a guy in this comunity who is already using XWAUP material. Personally I belive that it's a good thing to build paper models from my 3d cad models, but I'm not the owner of the XWAUP project, I can only speak for myself.
    My XWAUP ships are: Otana, Outrider, Mod Nebulon B, Strike Cruiser, Calamari Cruisers.
    Some of my not-XWAUP ships are: V-19, Diplomatic Cruiser, Republic corvet, LAAT, Rand Ecliptic...and more.

    My main site is:
    Be welcome and get a look...

    All crafts are in .opt format used by the XWA game. I can easilly convert them in 3DS format.
