Given the torrent of new BSG content that mikemckeon007 has been turning out of late, it might seem surprising to see him producing something other than what you'd expect. But then again, maybe we underestimated his abilities.

This is the X-Jet, or Blackbird, seen in the three X-Men films. While the films themselves were of variable quality, this model is top-notch conversion work. Please note that any credit issues or other matters should be brought to the attention of mikemckeon007 or this site's admins as soon as possible, although it is the opinion of this staff member that sufficient credit and respect to the original modelmaker has been given.

Worth a download even if you're not an X-Men fan. Actual X-Men not included.

Mike: it's all good, I just hadn't mentioned the "if there are any issues" line in every one of these recently-released mods of yours, and brought it up just in case anyone needed reminding. Last thing I'd want is for your excellent port work and considerable output to be in any way diminished because people felt you hadn't gotten sufficient credit. If they want the proof, trust me, we've got that proof-- and then some. No worries.
