View Full Version : Generic Spaceship models

03-11-2003, 02:14 PM
I am in need of a few moderately detailed spaceship models for a real project. Can anyone suggest either a model library cd or a website where I can purchase some fairly generic types of these models? I need something that is not recognizeable as being from an already existing tv show or movie and that I can use with little or no tweaking on my end. I have used Viewpoint Datalabs in the past, but they do not have exactly what I need and it is cost prohibitive for us to comission them to model what we need.

I would even consider buying models from you guys if anyone's interested. I basically am looking for a few mother ship type models, a few battlecruiser type models and a few smaller escort ship type models. I just don't have time to model everything from scratch.

thanks in advance

Ive got a huge battleship around, with several different versions. its sort of textured but not properly (i cant yet) I would probably give them away, or for a small sum. what do you think

Well..that's about as invisible as you can get.
Even with my monitor on max, I couldn't make anything out on the image.:eek:

I had to ramp my gamma correction up to 2.30 to view the image - all the other images seem to appear clearly - dunno <shrugs>

The image is very dark, tweaked it in ps so i could see it, looks nice :) very gothic.

Oh and i find that a lot of ppl when using things for commercial projects would rather buy the stuff than use freebies to make sure they legally own the rights to it, so no one else can use it.

EDIT: If u do sell it make sure u put the money in your lightwave fund :)

Eh, dude...

I think the 'LightWave Fund' comment was a take on the comment 'I have it on Max', (Max being of the 3DS variety) not the legitimasy of your copy of LightWave :)

lol! Let the fires be lit! :D
