    I have 13-year old brother-in-law that would like a model of the "Great Fox" from the Nintendo game "Starfox."

    In an attempt to get him to do something more creative than play nintendo all day, I agreed to try to hunt one down for him. Does anyone know of there a kit or 3D render out there somewhere?

    I know of nothing yet, but the star fox series is what i was raised on, from super Nintendo all the way to game cube, so i would be glad to see this become a reality too.

    Do you have Google sketchup and Pepakura? Theres a decent model of the Great fox, in the Google files, and it would be easy to clean up and convert with pepakura, i don't have the time currently, but i might try it this summer.

    I have Sketchup

    I have Sketchup, Pepakura, Photoshop, and the Corel Draw, Trace, etc. I'd prefer Illustrator, but my disk died.

    I actually know diddily about 3D modeling. Wargames terrain is more my forte to design.

    well i would be quite interested in doing this model, but i doubt ill have any time to work on it soon, however, if you are willing to wait about a month or two, i plan on revisiting this thread and posting the model when i make it. hope this helps.

    i know of 4 or 5 different versions of Arwing models also, so just let me know and I'll upload what i can. Do you specifically want the N64 Great Fox? I was going to start work on the Adventures model, so if your interested, I'm predicting a complete model in about 6 months.

    I don't know the difference in versions, honestly. I tend to avoid Nintendo in favor of my PC games. I thik he'd be happy with any of them.

    I'd be happy to help with the instructions, but my 3D modeling skills are pretty slim.

    Great Fox Pics

    Sorry it's taken me so long to reply. Been out of touch for a while. I had some on my desktop, which is currently in for repair, I will see what I can find. My B-i-L will be willing to help me get shots from the game, but the only digital camera I have is a cell phone at the moment. I'll research it some more. Thanks!

    Thanks Soaring!

    I look forward to it. As for the B-I-L, he's been holed up with his new Wii, which leads to no end of wii-wii jokes around his house . . . .

    I'll quit before it gets worse.
