+1 Nerd Cred if you can name two of the kits in this bash. Extra credit for all three.

The Red Omega was a one of a kind Psi Corps Starfury that gained notoriety during the Telepath War. The craft was modified with additional armament and prototype airfoils that allowed her to enter an atmosphere (though not to land.) The Red Omega was stationed on the Psi Corps Mothership which operated from within hyperspace, and was most often tasked with hunting down rogue telepaths.

The name of the Red Omega’s pilot remains unknown. He was a P12 telepathic, telekinetic Psi Cop who had been captured and altered by the Shadows to serve as their vessel’s CPU, and later recovered while in cryo sleep by the Interstellar Alliance. He was used as a weapon of sabotage during the Earth Alliance Civil War when he was smuggled aboard a loyalist cruiser and awoken remotely, resulting in a reflexive attempt to bond his nervous system with the nearest computer terminal, disabling the vessel. After the war he was returned to the Psi Corps for rehabilitation.

Though he never spoke again, he retained his loyalty to the Corps, and his ability to bond with electronics, allowing him to merge his consciousness with the controls of his Starfury and fly on instinct, as if the ship were an extension of his body.

The Red Omega scored 13 confirmed kills (not including “mundanes”) more than any other fighter in the Telepath War. After the destruction of the Psi Corps Mother ship, the Red Omega and her pilot disappeared into hyperspace, never to be seen again.

    What am I looking at here? Is this a model? CGI?

    Guns make you stupid. Better to fight your wars with duct tape. Duct tape makes you smart.

    I make Encounter Maps for Pathfinder and D&D! Check them out here: https://falleron.com/

    It's a physical/practical model kit (though all the rest of my work you'll see around here is CGI.)

    Model kit guesses:
    Black Omega Star Fury from B5, that's a given.
    Extra long wing tips are from Xizor's Virago from Star Wars.
    The heavy cannons look very WH40k to me, something Imperium, maybe Space Marines, but that's just a guess. The missiles too, maybe?

    Am I close?

    Almost there. You've got the first two. The third is much harder, given that it isn't a whole thing in-and-of itself, even when complete.

    Did you add a blur filter to the models themselves, or are the photos themselves not very sharp? I understand if you wanted to add a sense of motion, but the result ends up being that there's nothing the eye can focus on. Everything is a blur - the background and the foreground. I'd keep the ships in focus and leave the blur to the backgrounds almost exclusively. Also, you may want to try to come up with different lighting schemes (colored light, bounce light, etc) to help the models integrate further with the backgrounds.

    Considering the number of hours I put into Empire at War: Forces of Corruption, I should have gotten the second item on that list.

    @Fuzzy Modem , so, can you let us know what the third model was in this kitbash?
    I'm willing to forgo the extra credit.

    The photos themselves were kinda crap. I'l like to reshoot them with a light rig.

    Kind-of a trick question. It was just a missile kit.
