    There are a few subjects I would like to see made into kits. Maybe some have and I could be pointed in the right direction for them. In no specific order;

    Hammerhead - Space Above and Beyond
    Criton's Pod - Farscape
    Cygnus - The Black Hole
    Palomino - The Black Hole
    Ranger 3 - Buck Rogers

    Ranger 3 is on my todo list, together with the Mantis, Vincent & Maximilian. ;)

    I have the original MPC Maximilian kit, and missed out on the Vincent. There is a paper Vincent kit out there but it seems a bit cheesy.

    Well, to shamelessly plug my handy paper model link site (see signature link below), I have listed the SAAB Hammerhead from my good ole Jay of Jay's Box of Sci-Fi CardToys (it's listed on the "Random Cards" page). http://www.freewebs.com/jaybats/takeacardanycard.htm

    The little robot model is the only Black Hole card model that comes to mind and the link I used to have to it seems to have gone away (always grab a model file quick if you think you'll ever want it). I haven't scanned through the forum model file storage here or elsewhere lately, though, so you might take a look there. The Cygnus would be a great one, all right. Perhaps a certain talented movie model designer I'm thinking of in Japan will get around to it one day. It's right up his ally.

    I'm not sure if thats the same one I was thinking of but if it is then I need to give it a try. That looks fantastic. Did you make the base or did it come with it? The one I saw didn't have a base.

    Ah, you're not yet familiar with the fellow I'm talking about. He creates the amazing paper models of some of the most obscure subjects (Mothra, for instance). We don't speak his name just anywhere, but if look around you'll see evidence of his brilliance. He doesn't take requests, but we're always impressed with whatever he comes up with.

    WOW! Looks Fantastic! I came across a mind blowing 3d printed uss Cygnus. You have to buy each part file, then print, paint, and light it up. But it is almost studio quality. A bit expense though. Of course you need a 3d printer, which I don''t.
