Hi All

A remake of a previous vehicle which I intially didnt want to do, but my 'inner idiot' got the better of me!!

Crits welcome, just need to know if its easy on the eyes, and not too much in the way of design for designs sake if you know what I mean. I was leaning toward the mighty Blackbird stealth plane in way of design

Cheers
Jay

Nice,

Kind of SR-71 meets Battlestar Galactica (shape that is as judging by the windscreen it's a small craft).

Mat.

LOL, yeah, too clean, cheers Vlad


Some guy: Texture wise I was actually thinking of dirty metal plating not over detailed though. If you've ever seen the remake of Flight of the Phoenix, the plane in that is the inspiration for the 'look' in that department. Im also tinkering with the idea of tiles on the underside similar to the Space Shuttle for atmospheric re-entry, you know heat shield and all that, just to ground it in reality a bit more. I do want to do a shot of it coming in red hot on the underside....

Cheers for now

Looking good jay

Do you bevel your hard edges on the outside or just keep them hard and not smooth it any?

Hey Si

Thanks. No I dont bevel at all, as they can add weird geo here and there, a bit unpredictable and a bit of a waste of time. I just add edges on a subd and scale out, then just hit the convert button to poly. I'll be getting rid of some geo on the posts before the model is finished as there's a few too many edges on them right now for sure

Cheers for now
