I believe it was a 3D wireframe X-Wing viewer I wrote on my Atari ST using GFA Basic circa 1990. I first designed the X-Wing on paper before writing all the coordinates in arrays. I then did some research and calculations on 3D coordinate systems, perspectives, etc. at my college library, and wrote conversion routines to display the X-Wing in wireframe. Lastly I added keybindings to change the perspective mode, move and rotate the model, and toggle anaglyph stereo mode.
