I'm partial to the C model, but really anything would be great! And thank you!
No prob! I've started tinkering with one of the models, though, as the slicer seems to miss some of the submeshes when imported:

If I had to hazard a guess, I'd suppose the normals are flipped on some of them.

I've seen this kind of thing with "game meshes" they come out full of holes. You have to go into the modeler to fix it. Some programs I think can fix it automatically, but I'm not so sure. I do all my modelling in a solid modelling program so rarely see this issue, but it is correctable.

Yep, I had some issues as well with the Excalibur, which I corrected both with a dedicated software and by going in the mesh (for example removing a couple of internal faces in the mesh that led to external faces not being used by the splicer). Here, the issue seems to be on a sub-mesh level. I'll see what I can do for these in the following days and will send Klavs a version that works for printing if he wants to add them to the package.

EDIT: the more I look at it, the more the issue seems to be linked more to the internal faces.

Oh baby. I'm in love with the Rapiers all over again. I had to quickly make a thing last night because of it:

Ooo, I eagerly look forward to the Sabre, whenever it may come out.

I actually got sidetracked by the Rapier models and ended up messing with them to give each one the glory shot treatment, when I should have been working on my Starsiege video. 👀

After playing around with the Rapiers, I'm on the brink of buying your Hornet model too now. lool

Love those renders. Starsiege video. You have my attention. I Liked the old Earth/Starsiege games, well not so much tribes, but the mech based ones for sure.

Still some issues getting the Rapier to work in the slicer, but in the meantime, here's a print of Klavs' gorgeous Morningstar (although nowhere even close from LYP's print of it), with a Switch for scale:
