While I agree that some missile are not worth doing, to me anything larger than a harpoon (ie trebuchet and above) should be redone. I use trebs
and that V made 6 sided block is ugly as hell!
The uglyness of the bombs (cyclops, Helios, Tsunami and Harbinger) are what started me off, and the hornet was really a test of how close to the images I could make these. I based LOD0 on the tech anims.

By the way, how many polies is your Treb and Hornet?
Treb - V: 40, 25, 15
Treb - mine: 420, 184, 113, 24
Hornet - V: 44, 20, 13
Hornet - mine: 388, 181, 85, 28
So far I've not noticed any slowdown when missiles are fired. Included when double firing Hornets.
I've got a Shivan Treb LOD0 made, 325 polys. Still need to add a few fins to the Shivan Hornet.
Is there a way to set LOD distances for missile models? If so, then we can set it up so that LOD0 is only used within 50-100m, and so on.
Oh, lightspeed, I'm not getting your pics, except the new Kasyer one.
