I love physical Wing Commander crafts, and Jacob Hudson is currently working on a neat project. He was inspired by the Pepakura paper models to create a similar design in plastic. With some sheets available at a local hobby shop, he was able to build the following Piranha model. The ship comes complete with a removable cockpit, but it is not finished yet. Below are some artsy preview shots in black and white (the color image is made out of paper). In the future, Jacob will provide instructions and details on how to build your own. You can provide feedback here.
We've listed millions of reviews for the Wing Commander Movie over the last seven years, but people still find ones we missed. AD found this quickie at HomeTheaterHiFi, which weights its reviews towards technical attributes. Wing Commander was a treat when it initially came out on DVD, because many special effects that were dimmed and obscured in theaters were much more visible and pronounced at home. Here's how they rated it.
Prinze Jr. and Lillard form a very good onscreen pairing with a relationship that just may remind you of your best friend. The special effects are very good at times, but some things looked like they were skimped on, most importantly the fighter ships. - Jared Baldwin -
