Cheers Jay,

I'm hoping that too!! I've pretty much done this part now, having spent the morning extruding pipes I'm looking forward to making a different part!!! I do still have to do the very back of it but I think that can wait.

Not to sure where to go next, I'll probably make a start on the bit that looks like sledge runners at the back, it's probably got a technical name but at least I know what I'm on about!

Take it easy,

Mat.

Thanks fellas,

concorddawned, surprisingly it hasn't taken that long to get this far. Because I spent a couple of hours getting the basic shape down it has just been a case (so far) of filling in the details, I'm sure it will get more complicated soon.

Anyway here's an update, I got the runner things done.

Take it easy,

Mat.

nice choice of subject

firefly is great and the movie was pretty good too (though losing wash and the shepard were a bit bad

Its looking real good so far, keep it up.
Are you tempted with doing the interior as well??

Hello folks,

Cheers Tick, yeah why did they kill them off? I wanted to know who the shepard really was and wash didn't deserve to die, I couldn't get the fact that he was Steve the pirate, YARRrrrrrr, from dodgeball out of my head and that made me smile.

Sorry I've not updated for a few days, I just discovered that I have a month less than I believed to get my university stuff done so I thought I'd better make a start on it!! I had a bit of a play with Maya today though and rebuilt the front end, before I put in any detail, as I wasn't happy with the lines on the original.

I'll post more as I do it. Take it easy,

Mat.

Really well done so far! ... but you guys just spoiled the movie for me ... I guess thats what I get for waiting so long to see it:hug: Maybe if I drink enough before I watch it I will forget what I've read.

Keep rockin' dude!

Sorry swankymonkey, drinking lots is always an option!

Tick, I forgot to answer your question about the interior. I don't think I'll be doing it this time, maybe one day as a seperate project, who knows?

I managed to squeeze in a bit of modelling time today and put some detail around the cabin area.

very nice detail, looking forward to seeing this bird fly!

sorry swanky I forget that people still haven't seen it. Drink copious amounts of alcohol and you'll also probably forget what happens after you've seen it anyways

I think you might want to bevel the edges. Right now it looks like you could cut yourself on the edges.

Hello folks,

and cheers for the thoughts. I think you may be right about the edges NextDesign, although they don't look so bad without the wireframe showing. I'll see what I can do about them when I'm going over the model again.

Another update, I made the antenna things on the sides of the cockpit and added details to the top of the neck.

Cheers,

Mat.
