Nice - the only thing is the wheel - they do not look as if they are built for speed

Yeah I agree, I would lose the small wheels and perhaps use the cog wheel on the underside if you wanted a wheel - it has a good size for drive, like a drag car has. But obviously make it a tyre and rim and not a cog.

tweetytunes,jay>
thanks for your advice.
I agree with your opinion. Original idea was to create a landing wheel, but i will change that, and main shape too. a little...
I'm thinking about it deeply.

thanks, I hope you enjoy this challenge.

This is perhaps the most imaginative entry so far. I actually like the wheels the way they are. The back wheel could raise and lower for take off and landing.

If you could refine the shape just a tad and detail it to the max, this entry could be hard to beat.

um.... Here are a little bit refined images.
But it doesn't looks like speed machine. looks like a machine gun
so I need to change main shape.

anyway, I made it with nurbs and poly modelling
I try to model with nurbs first time.
i don't like it fix fix fix.....

Widen the trigger a little and put in a vertical Ion engine? I would change the 2 side shapes and maybe make them more wing like?? It really depends on what you want to get out of it mate...terrestrial, air, sub-space/space?

Hey this is a good start! My advice to make it more steam punk would be to expose the rear engines a little like the old WWI bi-planes. Throw in some guide wires and a few extra cogs and bits and you'll have a top notch concept.

An interesting cartoon you might want to look at would be Last Exile. They do an interesting steam-punk type feel that might help for a little inspiration towards adding the finer details to your work.

Keep it up!

I can't understand yours a few sentences.
i'm so sorry. bad english.

Anyway, i changed my speed machine body shape.
The previous ones was a part of something new. New body frame concept is Disposable razors.
Now, we have only one week. i'll do my best

sorry. I'll be too late.
really, I'm an old 3ds max user but maya newbie.
maya's UI and nurbs modelling, it's confusing me.
Frankly, I wanted to learn maya nurbs modelling through this challenge.
but yet I should be no skills.

I will try to rejoin next challenge. thanks to all
