    Howdy John,

    ok, I dont know of any "black hole" models, however, there is the site that I got the LAST STARFIGHTER "GUNSTAR" drawings from..... http://members.fortunecity.com/wendhausen/BRStarshipsv3/profile/blackhole/cygnus.htm
    Thwere are drawings and pics of starships from movies like: Buck Rogers, Battle beyond the stars, 2001 a space odessey, the black hole, battlestar galactica, star wars, space above and beyond, etc...etc......
    Speaking of the GUNSTAR........I was asked the otherday by another member here for these same drawings on this site. I was curious as to whether you have done anything more with your version of it or given up on it?
    Anyway, It is 5:30 am and I am on my way to work. Hope these drawings/pics help.


    Have a good day,

    Greg aka GW

    Hey Greg,

    No haven't given up. I just got the file for the Gunstar back not too long ago (my hard drive crashed and had to be replaced a few months ago). Between work and the holidays I haven't got much of anything done on anything at all. I hope to get back on it soon, perhaps this weekend.

    Gunstar design is complete. It consists of 83 parts. I think it came out fairly well considering the limitations of the design program. It builds things in a series of boxes but unfortunantly no curves.

    No Joy....:(

    Sorry, Getter...the models I was thinking about are 3D computer models, not paper models...I'll keep an eye or two out for them though.

    Well curves might look better than rectangles but it looks like you captured the essence of the ship pretty good.8)

    Doc,

    Thanks for looking. If I get a chance I might design some myself.

    Wilja,

    I'm actually very suprised I did as well as I did on the Gunstar considering how much of it is curved. Shiryu is a very basic program. You have to get creative with it, but it can produce some neat models.

    A show of hands, is anyone intrested in building the Gunstar? The Shiryu file format is strange so I would have to print it all out and scan the parts to a JPEG. That's the only way to get any surface details to it as well. The drawing tools in the program suck bad so detailing there would be an absolute nightmare!!!

    I haven't built anything for awhile so I think I would enjoy a break from designing. Feel free to send it my way when you get it to that point.

    Quick question: What is the file type and could it possibly be used in Rhino?

    Will,

    It's called a TMO file. I've sent some of these files to Keith who couldn't seem to get them to work. I don't know if you were following my thread on TMO files but I found a bunch of models in this format (the reason I bought the software in the 1st place), but still couldn't view the files. I tseems that if you don't have the software nothing will open it up???? I can send you the file if you want to try anyway. If not I'm gonna try and scan the parts I printed out within the next couple days.

    Hey guys,

    I got the Gunstar all scanned in and I'll start sending out the files. I included some pics from the design program for refrence too. This program builds the models from a series of boxes, then you just match up the numbered and lettered sides together.
