    I have the mesh. It's very nice but it's not low poly. Not by papermodel standards anyway.

    Here's a pic, this is the wireframe:

    It'll take a while to get through all of this to create a model from. That's if Pep can handle it. Plus, it'll probably be fairly big to be able to deal with all those small faces.

    Bad news I'm afraid. I'm sure it could be used though. I haven't even checked for intersection.

    Which mesh was this? I donwloaded the ones from ap3d posted earlier - is this the hi-poly one from there?

    I hesitate to get too involved on this one, but... it is one of my all-time favourite ships. :mrgreen:

    im not sure where i got it... i have about 4 different meshes of this one.this was 1 of 2 low poly meshes i have.i sent that one because the textures are good and the ship was laid out pretty good.

    I've been waiting for a Whitestar, so I hope we can get this one off the gound soon. I think alot of the B5 ships have been neglected. Perhaps once the BSG ships and stargate ships are done we can revisit all the babylon 5 ships missing from the paper model world.

    WoW what a response this thread is getting! I agree there needs to be more love shown twards B5 ships. I am still hoping that this is still a feasible project.

    It's well feasible. People just need both the time and the reference. Some of these ships will ned to be modelled from scratch as well as textures for them all. :)

    I wonder if we could use the models from the Armada II babylon 6 mod. It has all but two of these ships in there.

    Just wanted to see if this had been forgotten. I hope not as it seems that a few people really want one.

    Not forgotten. Not by me anyway. I said I'll take a look at it but when I'm not working on other things. I said this would be an "in-between" project for me. This will take a while as the mesh is low poly by todays mesh standards but is still HIGH poly for a papermodel. :)

    Patience my friend.:)

    Unless someone else can do it quicker??

    OH don't take it as I am being pushy! I just don't want this idea to die. I have all the time in the world. Especially with all the BSG ships left to do!!!!!!!!!!:thumb:
