Lately Black Lightning has been working on a Privateer 2 Danrik model for a Freelancer mod. Sometimes the P2 designs get overlooked, and they were generally pretty neat. BL isn't making a WC mod, but he likes the shape of the craft. The Tri-System had some sleek and stylish fighters, and I always had fun in a Danrik. The model clocks in at just 674 triangles. That doesn't seem like very many for such a sharp creation.
