Model addons repository
This article serves as a repository for people looking for model addons for their Fan Missions (FMs). The article lists non-official art asset addons that can be classified as models. They were created by various TDM contributors, including mappers and model-makers.
Though some of the originally unofficial models eventually found their way into the official releases of TDM, we'll try to only list those models that aren't an official part of the game's base package.
Consider this article a repository of additional models.
