The Pyro GX by khaiwraith The Pyro GX by khaiwraith
A model of the fighter craft from the Descent game series. The Pyro GX is made from cardboard and paper only. Painted using acrylic model kit paints. Missile tubes are different than the classic Pyro GX but follows the new Pyro GX from "Into Cerberon", a Descent like mod for DooM 3.

You're welcome! I did a google search looking for some good shots of the -GX yesterday when I saw this as one of the results, and when I saw that the link lead to DeviantArt, I just had to look closer. Always great to run into another fan of the ole beauty. :D

It was one of the things that drew me in as a kid! I enjoyed Descent 3 a lot more when I found the Pyromania mod! The Pyro model that one includes is beautiful..

Oh, HELL YES. The Pyro GX OWNZ. Nice model you made there!

I've still got all those old Descent games, and they still play, too. ^_^

But I wonder, where do all the primary and secondary weapons go? I mean, with weapons like the Fusion Cannon, Mega Missiles, and Earthshaker Missiles, you'd think that the Pyro would be "overburdened."

...Aw, whatever. The Pyro can do that 'cuz it's just that awesome!

Man, this reminds me of when I was younger, I would daydream about Descent merchandise, including a little Pyro GX figure...I was a total Descentard. :iconexcitedplz:
Love this. :heart:

You're welcome. I'm starting to think I should attempt something similar and see how it turns out...and make those dreams from long ago come true. :D

It's hard not to love Descent. I still do. :)

Nice job! I love Descent, and miss the series. I wish they hadn't canceled Descent IV (4). :/

I always wished I had one of these models.

This is really well made, nice job.

What I don't get is how a ship so small can carry so many weapons and have such a large capacity for energy, and have such powerful engines.

khaiwraith Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2007
Thanks. Haha, I don't get it either. Maybe its duue to some future technology like flatspace or nanotechnology or something.

Anyhows, if you wanna see how I built it you can check the forums on planetdescent.com under the art section. It's quite awhile ago so you need to look down and search abit. Thanks again! :)

khaiwraith Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2007
haha... thanks. its quite simple. lots of cardboard, glue and plenty of patience.

i could try and find my old cutouts of the pyro-gx. maybe it'll help you. or you could go to to [link] and check out the forums under art titled "pyro gx 4d".

God bless.
