    Anyone out there know where I can get a 3d model of the Event Horizon? I've been looking for a while and can't seem to find anything.
    Btw, I use 3d Studio Max 4.2, so 3DS or another Max-compatible format would be appreciated.

    Now that's one model I'd be interested in seeing. I considered making it some time ago, purely because it hadn't been done yet. Then I did some research and saw how many polygons I'd need to make the bugger and gave it a miss until home computing power has moved up a notch or six. Kudos to anyone who's made it and done it justice.

    Does anyone at least know where I can get a bunch of detailed pictures of it along with specs such as length, width, etc.? The site Douglas Nicol mentioned above will help, but I need more than that.

    This is what I can get after a quick Google image search

    If you have Photoshop or similiar you might want to enlarge this

    Thats cool Doug.
    Im dying for a closer look at the mid-section.
    If you find any on that part of the ship that would be great. I cant find anything decent

    I did have some schematics somewhere - it's a ship I'd like to see built myself. I started it once, but I'm not THAT obsessed with it to do it myself, as it's one monster of a ship to do with all the detail to it - as you can see, the studio model was h-u-g-e.

    I'm afraid those were the best pics I was able to get.

    One ships I'd like to see a model of is the USS Cygnus from The Black Hole, I like the whole design of it.

    schematics would be great! I know making the model in 3D is WAY too big for one person to handle, but what if a bunch of people took different sections? Make it into some sort of organized modelling project. Just an idea.

    I may be mistaken here but I'm sure someone has already made a Cygnus mesh. It's all imagemaps of course, no one could make a reasonable model of all those lit windows and keep the polycount to a reassonable level without losing their sanity. Can't for the life of me remember where I saw it, but I'm 95% convinced it does indeed exist.

    Mmm, interesting about that Cygnus mesh.

    I'll keep an eye out for more pics of the Event Horizon, however, most shots seem to be the same few pics repeated. Some of those I put up were close ups of the model and they may serve you just as well.

    I think the Cygnus is from the film 'The Black Hole'

    It's a damn good site in general worth browsing through. I also like the retro look of the War Rocket Ajax from Flash Gordon and the Draconia from Buck Rogers.

    Love the avatar micuu. If you use Lightwave I know where you can get get a Liberator and Federation Pursuit ship mesh.
