    The Sentri is the Beasty. It's got the right wing shape. I'm still working out the cockpit and body in my mind. And the details. The movie version had feathers on the wings. The series versions have lines, and exposed greeblies.

    As for scale, I think 1:60 to 1:48 (25-28mm) would work.

    So are you going to create two seperate textures then, one for the movie version, and one for the TV version? I have to admit, I've never seen the movie.

    Also, if you do that, is there a chance you could then use the cockpit to make a "neelde threader" (gate glider)?

    PM me with your e-mail and I'll send you the file. It doesn't have Multi-Vector-Assault mode though.

    Centauri To Stargate

    Well, I'd planned on the TV version, simply becuase I liked the look better. The model I've seen (and this may have just been the paint job) had a lot of blue and gold and purple on it. Very Egyptian, and in my opinion, kinda . . . well it just didn't look right.

    Hadn't thought about the Needle Threader. I'd have to get some shots of that one.

    There aren't a whole hell of a lot of shots for it, but once you have a Death Glider cockpit, all you need to make is the ring.

    A blurry one that is pretty much all you can find on the internet:

    Here's one for a Half-Life 2 mod, not complete, and not terribly detailed:
    http://www.hlfallout.net/image.php?id=32843

    This is a 3d model for Star Trek Bridge Commander. It may not be accurate, I don't know, I haven't downloaded the model or seen any screenshots, but it has the potential to make your job easier if you can open it up:

    The Ring

    That's one of the few episodes of SG-1 I've actually seen. I think if I modified a ring from another ship (I think Jaybats has a jedi fighter with one).

    I want to do the standard version first, though. I imagine by the time I get it done, Jaybats will have beaten me to it.

    Part of what slows me down is I do all my designing in Illustrator, since I don't really have a decent CAD program or know how to use one.

    You mean a model of Discovery like this? (sorry, not a kit)

    As for Leonov, you could always try to pull one together using Jaybat's new Omega as a starting place.

    You missed the Orai Toilet-bowl ships. (Sorry that's just what they remind me of), the Saratoga from Space: Above & Beyond. Chig cruisers from the same series, The Prison Ship, Agro Ship, and Colonial Movers from Battlestar Galactica, and the Thunderhawk and Hawk Fighters from Buck Rogers.

    I've already put in my vote for Moya, but I hav'nt seen any mention of the Sulaco and Narcissus from Aliens - I'd also love to see a Predator ship, Red Dwarf, Starbug, Blue Midget and finally Justice 1 from Judge Dredd!

    I caleld them mother ships.

    Never saw that series, I'm probably too young.

    I could add them, I just didn't think of them as quite as essential. Colonial Movers would be pretty easy to do in card though.

    Two more I don't know. :p

    Boy is this list getting long! I think Sulaco is underway somewhere, (the aliens papermodel site maybe?) though I'm not so sure about the status of that project.

    Not sure what Starbug or Blue Midget are from...I guess Red Dwarf? I've only seen enough episodes to know its the name of the show and the ship (that means two).:roll:

    Anyway, all added.

    Researched Red Dwarf a little, wanted to know what ships I was putting on the list. Might I ask which versions of the ships you want?

    I also figured I'd add White Midget.
