Hey guys,

I am a modeler for the game SFC (which was, of course, based off of SFB). I've been working on a bunch of models to sort of conservatively reinvent the models that you find in game.

I thought it might be neat to share them with you guys, too. Now, bear in mind I have taken a bunch of my own liberties with some of the concepts (given the Kzinti FF two nacelles instead of the usual three, for example). Furthermore, since SFC was sort of a TMP reinvention of the SFB universe, I've made my ships to fit that.

The Untextured Kzinti Fleet



Textured Z-FF and Z-DD


Federation Thunderbolt PFs

(the orange glowy things and colored trim are a treatment of mine that is present on all my federation models)

Cookie-cutter ISC fleet

Those look awesome. I particularly like the Kzinit and ISC designs.

So where can we download the models for SFC? Wink Smile

Very nice on the Kzintis.

I really like the drone "magazine" look. Reminds me of 70mm rockets fired from a Tiger helicopter.

Rob,

Thanks for the link! Looking forward to seeing what you do with the Borak. I'm kicking around the possibility of having minis made for them, but I need a digital model as a starting point...something I have zero ability to produce. Depending on how things go, there is a chance we could eventually see what you come with as a set of physical models (assuming you would be willing to lend your work to such an effort). We'll see!

Cheers,
Jeremy

Jeremy,

What my friend and I came up with was a pretty big departure from what you originally designed. Here's a top-down sketch he sent me, which I am going to use as a basis for the motif in 3D, just so you don't get too surprised when I model them out.
