No. Gary Hutzel is a CGI creation, which explains his wicked-cool skillz.

And now I'll have to change a few numbers...

I didn't verify the registry either, as all I had was a grainy screen cap and a bad video that didn't allow to read anything. I just trusted that it was a lot better on a good video.

See? More sarcasm!

Look what you've started, Guardian!
We'll never have another sarcasm-free discussion about a fictional technology again, thanks to you!

I hope you're happy, young man.

this comment needs more love.

i can't believe theyve been using the CGI Hutzel for so long but they are still sticking with the old physical models for Okuda and Sternbach.

Their files were lost and kitbashed versions were subbed in to keep cost down....

I thought they were just too lazy to redo an Okuda or Sternbach so they just used an Oberth and a Miranda with extra prongs instead. (With incorrect registeries). [Smile]

No, they are just represented as scaled up existing ships:
Okuda is the Perigrine fighter as the 300 meter long Nightingale and Sternbach is a 600 meter KBOP with giant 15 meter tall windows on it.

You, as a fan, are supposed to start threads on discussion forums about how (somehow) it all makes sense.


....somehow.

More on the way...

I'm still waiting. [Wink]

Sorry...

In my email correspondence with Curry, I dropped what I thought were polite but blatant hints for him to actually take some photos of the model & send them to me. He either didn't get the hint (doubtful), he didn't have the capability to do so (possible), or he just didn't want to (most likely). Either way, I never got any pics.
