Hi,

try 3ds. There is a loader on gametutorials.com. If you put it in a display list you get a decent performance.
The models can be found at 3dcafe.com, but you might want to build them yourself.

Greets,

Try Milkshape3D. Its a great shareware modelling package, which supports many common model formats for importing and exporting. You can even write your own export routine with the SDK, so you can make up your own format.
