Great news! We have another beauty ready for you to enjoy. This time it's Marco Antonio's wonderful System Patrol craft! As always it's stunning and personally I love what he did with the design. Just great work, so make sure you give it a real close fly-by before you blow it to bits and pieces.

And as always some screenies to make you drool ;)

Now thats an improvement over the original.

I allways thought the model from LA looks like a balloon. ;)

Once again thanks for the excellent work!

Looks great. From the rear, it looks like there should be a little ripley kicking an Alien out the airlock :D

Was the inspiration for this model taken from the Empire at War model? (or vice versa?) They look very similar. And shiny! Great job! :D

It reminds me a bit of the Loronar Strike Cruiser, no?

We finally have a replacement for that awful looking default texture! And what a replacement - it looks great!

I know I haven't said anything in years, but wow, this is one of my favorite ships (for some strange reason) and you've done a fantastic job.

I got really excited when I loaded the homepage today. I saw the headline that said, "A New Release!" and it was dated March 16th. I was hoping we had another finished model, and then I saw that it was March 16th of 2013...
