    Found a link to some old b5 models that were "lost" to antiquity. It took a bit of digging, but I found them again via the internet archive - wayback machine.

    For everyone who had a favorite link that was lost you can revive it again - assuming it was archived.
    The Wayback Machine - https://archive.org/web/web.php

    Here is the link.

    The models were done by Diego Pardo circa 2006.

    I hope this helps all you B5 fans out there.:)

    They only last so long, so if you want them, download them, because they do disappear. :) Thanks Sly Seeker. :)

    It's no problem. Just trying to help out. I'll make sure to pet Mr. Peabody on the head for you.

    Aw man, I miss that site! It was one of the first paper modeling sites I visited when I was first made aware of what paper modeling was! I remember printing out that old Battle Droid model and then being confused as all get out as to how to put the thing together... I think I ended up printing another model on the other side of the sheets and then building that instead. But now that I have the skill to tackle those, I will try them again! Thanks for posting it! :D

    Oh yes! After the BSG Defender project is done. The B5 ships are on the list. The Vorlon could be redesigned with polychromatic paper and the Vorchan is VERY much on my mind (see my icon for reference). No one (at least that I've found) has built a detailed model from paper (like the BSG, Star Trek, & Star Wars models) for the Vorchan.. yet. Maybe a good starting point would be to start with the Sentri fighter and work with the scale from that.

    There are so many good designs from B5 that I'm surprised more don't exist in paper form. Maybe if they'd ever had a decent vidya game released to rip models out of, lol.

    Actually, there is a fan based game called the Babylon Project using a freespace 2 engine. I suppose you could upload the models to pepakura and go on from there. Of course the other ways are to create something on a cad or cad-like program, or by hand.
