Very nice looking helmet. It's looking really great. Can you rename this thread to X-Men or something? That way anyone that wants to model a character can just add it to this thread.

I know you can draw bullet, all you have to do set out the poses (drawings) in A nice way, I can do the rest in photoshop but if some one else would like to join in and do the comp........dave

Edit:If this gets of the ground it will be like a little taster of what work will be like because you will not always do what you want but what some one is paying you..dave

that is a awesome idea - a joint WIP. do the models have to be fully textured and all? i would like to participate - and sign up for the model of the sr-71 blackbird - something to hopefully look like this:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Lo..._Blackbird.jpg

Hi BadyDuck
Could you model the x men jet plane look simular to the blackbird see link below......dave

http://www.fantastic-plastic.com/X-JetCatalogPage.htm

Edit:Sorry Bullet must have posted at the same time, what I ment was set out a poster (drawings)so we have a idea what poses we might need, I think that would be the logical way to go

dave, that is the x-jet of x-men 1 - the one in x-men 3 is almost identical to the x-men 2 x-jet. arghhhhhhh.

now i see what "do what they pay you not what you want" means - i did have some high res blueprint for the xf-71 including profile curves ....

oh well - trying for the x-jet from x-men 2 - since i have a pic that says its from x-men 2 and no guess work which version it is ....
