Still looking top notch Tweety. I like the fact that your not showing any renders, just wire frames.

Funny you say that - this ones a render but the wire frame is still there - But its the way I normally work in W.I.P`s. There is no point in renders until the model is almost finished and testing textures.

Lots of work on the underside of the ship after my little break - The guns and bombs are now gone (did not like them) and I really not happy with the wings. Going away from my concept a little now, that design is quite a few years old now.

I really think you should keep the wings, but not have them flare out nearly as much as your original design has them. That way they don't overpower ( visually ) the main mart of the ship.

The wings and shape are staying just going to rebuild them in a different way. The whole point of the ship is to struck the fear into people with the logo

Made all the panels now for the wings and calling it a night - some tweaks need in places but overall they look alot better - even got a slight bend in there so closer to the first concepts now.

Well I added some lights and some blinn`s to the scene and this is what I got

As you can probably guess quite happy with the results but it has shown up one or two problem areas that I`m going to have to fix.

But render times were in the seconds = me very happy

Half way through folk

Honest to god they are just some simply blinn`s - there are 6 area light all set to quite low values and a white background (dome with a white surface shadder)

I was really shocked how good it came out - Playing about with the colours at the mo and making some parts non reflective - going to build the inner parts tonight after applying for some jobs.

Top notch Tweety; however, I think there are a couple of things that could be changed IMO. That squiggly line down the center of the wings, It doesn't seem to fit the over-all design of the ship very well. And the wings seem a little thick.

Anyway, looks alot better than my entry. LOL, maybe I should withdraw from the challenge, which probably wouldn't be a bad idea.

Looking at some ref of plains wings are thicker than I thought but making the panels out of the original wing has thickened them up a great deal. The line down the wing and the little dents in the front dome are the things I noticed in the above post - I want to keep the line down the centre of the wing just not have it that thick.

Nar man don`t give up - that not the way to play this game.
