I know what you mean. Its a bit of an added difficulty in any 3d rendering - to either draw in the right order or hide lines
I guess that's why I liked subtractive2 - it all became a bit "undeterminate" as to what what where - leaving the shading to help out the eye. Making the line thickness = 1 means a lot less problem with things in the "background" drawing over things in the foreground, but I liked it better with fat lines.
There are infact 2 ways of seeing this object - at any time its eiher pointing towards you or away from you. Only the shading and minor perspective effects help out here. Without the shading - sometimes the XWing looks as if its getting smaller as it gets closer - until you realize that you looking at the situation backwards.
I look forward to coming up with something new in 3D now
