    Some of you may remember a little game by the name of Wing Commander that was out eons ago. Drawing inspiration from I decided to start scratch building a model of the TCS Tiger's Claw, the carrier from the first game. I've always loved the design and upon seeing an updated fan rendering of the vessel I decided to cannibalize the 3d mesh for the model and start construction. I've worked on it on and off for the last few months. I'll post a few pics to see if it drums up any interest. I'm hoping to be finished with the model soon.

    It's looking good, Privateer! I'm always glad to see another capital ship being modeled, no matter what movie/show/game/book its from. There's also a TCS Victory out there somewhere, too.

    I just did a quick search, and found the Victory here;, as well as others.

    I'll be watcing with interest.

    Thanks for the welcome! Here are some more progress pics! Just FYI these are older progress pics. I'm just posting them a few at a time. This model represents months of planning and biulding. I just wanted to share here.

    Looks much nicer than the flying hot dog bun we got in the movie. :thumb:

    Here are some more progress pictures. You can see the completion of the back area, the addition of the launch tubes, the nameplate, and some cleanup work. Thanks for all the feedback!

    Here is an update for you. Some progress I made on the nacelle supports and the nacelles. Some of these pictures are a little higher resolution. I am currently trying to figure out turrets. Any ideas? Maybe I could cannibalize something from a battleship papercraft?
