    Mooching around on starship modeller discussion forums, (http://www.starshipmodeler.net/cgi-...php?f=42&sid=a81b9fa1a8977b9554676195c723704b) and found these ;

    They are from a game called Wipeout, and look georgeous!

    In the same vein, there is a Hovercarracer at http://www.matthewreilly.com/ex_paperargo.htm from a book. Also looks very nice.

    Hope these are new to people.
    My thanks to the designers of these models, and the people who noticed them in the first place, coz I cant take any credit!

    Isn't it unusual for Jan not to password his documents?

    I didnt think of that, but you are right. The post & links have been on starship modeller since 1/11/06, so if he did'nt want them there, I'd think he would have protested by now. On the other hand, i dont want to upset such a brilliant designer, so if anyone can suggest what I should do now, please let me know. My apologies if I've gone wrong here.

    To be honest they look like his work, and also bear his website details, as always, on the last page. I always click to his site and download from there, rather than direct linking, and couldnt find them. That was when it struck me that it never had a password... Perhaps they are beta tests? Does he use beta builders?
    Also the links go to his url.... but they are to his directory, curioser and curioser... Lots of concept are there. I dont think he knows..

    No disrespect to you either sir. I am finding it very strange indeed.
