Heey, a new vehicle - not had one of these in a while :) I recognise it as well, which is unusual for me. Must've been all those of hours playing Rebel assault back in the day. ;) I can definitely recognise what it is, but the model is a very basic attempt at recreating the vehicle and the texturing could be vastly improved. Additionally, it has no weapons and no engine effects. Oh yeah, and when it blows up you see bits of an X-Wing... that's not right is it?
There are 3 separate versions, the standard, the Jedi and the Sith. The Jedi and standard are practically identical, save a small logo, and the sith is just a black version. Nice idea, but definitely an idea which could go further with a more detailed model and improved texture work. On the plus side, it is one of the vehicles I find easier to fly :)
Well that's what I thought of the first version, and I can see that the author has taken onboard some of my suggestions there as well as the ones posted in the comments, which is always good to see :) It looks far more realistic now the engine works, although it's still a pretty useless vehicle if it doesn't have any weapons. The textures have been improved, and a little more 'definition' has been added using embossing, however I think more can still be added - perhaps through more model detail instead of more texture work. Oh yes, and when the engine is turned off the engine looks wrong, as you can see the same texture there as the rest of the model. Additionally, the X-Wing bug has been fixed. :)
Quite an improvement over the pervious model, but still plenty of room for improvement, keep at it :)
