Azel/Atolm, if you pay interest to the concept side of the models/mods, comes up with the ingenious designs for quite a few ships. Goes to show how far a pen and paper can go when put together. Still, paper is only 2d. What Pepperman does (oh so well I should add) is make designs 3d...particularly Azel's Romulan designs. This is no different. In fact, sometimes I get a little sceptical when mods only have one picture to go with them. It can mean that there isn't anything to show, that it is lacking etc. It does, on the rarer occassion, mean that there is too much to say and so, one picture makes sense. This is also one of those occassions.
The beautifully crafted Shadow Wing Warbird comes with a plethora of heavy weaponry (of which new textures are included [see: Rake's Weapon Texture] for her disruptors and torpedoes), good defence but a hefty bill for construction. It does however have a wireframe, stylish admiral's pic and similarly stylish build button. Still, a minor warning as this ship has some pretty high-res textures and a medium-high poly count.
It's always good anyhow to see a new Romulan design and this is a reason why. So, download this sculpted bird...but don't get in its way.
