After lots of experimentation, I've created a workflow for extracting quality models and textures from Elite: Dangerous. By assembling and tweaking in Blender what I ripped, I created an accurate model of the Python, which is available for download as a flyable ship in my new Elite: Dangerous+ pack.
I had a lot of fun making this. I might make another ship like the AspX or, because now I can potentially extract any model I want, space stations, Thargoids, or whatever else.
I like cute pokemon and space games.
