Thanks starjsjswars and Bullet
Just another angle, the main hull does need texturing but I do not have the time will try and fit that in at the end (if I run out of time I will finish after). Things to do
1.Get the thing moving along a curve (Ive done that once before dont think it was that hard)
2.Jet engine thrust, burn
3.Some rocket hiting engine
4.Explostion
What could go wrong LOL.........dave

If its a big ship, maybe make a cone shape for the engine, then againt it depends on the overall look that your after.

If your following a curve, i.e. a motion path, then use it as a start and bake it to keys for adjustment. moton paths never get to the full look on their own.
