Thought you might be interested...
One of my favorite Inferno ships is the Peregrine. And for some reason I was in the modeling mood... So...

Here it is:


Modeled completely from scratch, and yes I took a lot of artistic licence... If you are interested, I can upload the file, it's in sketchup format. Questions, comments, and opinions would be welcome.

Well I don't know if I can convert a sketchup file into something I can use, but I'll give it a go if you can upload the file.

Ok, here it is.

Re: Thought you might be interested...
At the moment it comes out heavily corrupted (in 3ds, obj etc) and my attempts to fix it have been unsuccessful.

It looks quite good, I have only a question, there is an intersection in the thrusters, I don't know if that is because there are 2 different subsystem, if so it is ok, but if not, wouldn't be better to get rid of the intersection ?. See:

I have converted it to 3ds, hope it helps.

EDIT: (I removed the attachment)

If you open that 3ds file in something you'll see the problem.

 
Re: Thought you might be interested...
I can see that some faces are flipped, is there something else corrupted in the geometry ?

When I open the 3DS file in Deep Exploration there aren't any problems with the faces, however Max seems to have problems with the model or the convertion.

Re: Thought you might be interested...
Yeah, I was having trouble with the thrusters at one point, they arent supposed to be 2 subsystems, but when I tried to get rid of one intersection, the whole face dissapeared. I'll try to fix that, and the flipped faces. I will upload the updated version as soon as I can.

Re: Thought you might be interested...
No, but the 2nd one you posted looks like it'll work at the moment.

 
Re: Thought you might be interested...
Great. I hope you can use it. I would also be interested in doing some other ships if this one works.

Will this replace the old model or complement it (as in an HTL pack)?

Re: Thought you might be interested...
 I definately will, but I am a little unsure which ship to do next...

Here is a list of Inferno ships I plan to re-model:

GTF Vesuvius*
GTB Danaus
GTF Hercules III*
GTF Alves
EAB Gagana
GTB Ursa II
GTB Notus*
GTB Jotun

*COMPLETE redesign…

EDIT: a couple of the above ships weren't even in R1, but I saw them in the "Glory shots" thread.
