As of all you know by now, the GTT Argo, one of the remaining FS2 retail models in existence, is being reworked. At the moment, I am focusing on adding details to make the Argo mesh high-poly as possible. In the future, I would like to UVWrap it. When the model's finished with the final corrections, I will release it as part of the new MediaVPs (or perhaps a separate model if I see fit)  :)

I can't really comment on the model itself because it doesn't look too different from the retail mesh, but I can warn you against starting too many WiPs at once. I've made that mistake, and due to a lack of focus, none of the ships are actually anywhere close to finished.
[22:29] <sigtau> Hello, #hard-light?  I'm trying to tell a girl she looks really good for someone who doesn't exercise.  How do I word that non-offensively?

What makes my version different than the retail Argo is not just the detailed "hatches", but also the newly created truss and the engines.

Yay, detail on the hatches that are never, ever used in Fs2! Very nice start though, can't wait to see the finished product.

I'll keep up my good work on the Argo.

I'd advise listening to Hades here, especially since you've just started modelling. Taking one model to completion will teach you more than half-finishing two of them.
The good Christian should beware of mathematicians, and all those who make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of Hell.

Fine with me, taking note of Hades here. It's clear that I'm fully opposed to starting too many of WiPs at once. Anyways, where can I find the SVN of the MediaVPs?

You'd had to be a member of the FSU team to get access to their SVN as it is not public.

This is what I am trying to. If I can release two models, the Hygeia and the Argo, can I become such a member of the team? Right now. I'm working on them.

Have you ever seen that old TV show Kung Fu? The part where Cain, as a child, had to wait and wait outside the temple for a really long time? It's kind of like that.
Did you hear that fellas? She says I have a Meritorious Unit.

It's never too late to start focusing on one of your amazing models and go at it to the end :).

I don't know Hades' models, but if he wanted to finish one, but just couldn't decide which one, maybe he could upload pictures of them, and we could vote on which one to work on?

 
I don't know Hades' models
Shame on you!
(I would vote for the Orion. That thing is serious awesome.)

Anyway, good luck to you Bryan.

The Orion is pretty much done.  Hades is just far, far too lazy to uvmap it himself.  Same goes for the Apollo.  And the Leviathan.
