More detail. And i dont know why but stuff like this doesnt look right if i dont see weapons. I know its speed based but how often do you see spaceships without guns?

How often do you see a spaceship with guns? I don't think I've ever seen a real one. Anyway, nice work so far bullet!

Thanks guys,

yeh the tail etc are just drft planar shapes...I havent decided what to go with. Its not a spaceship LOL...its an open water racing boat...ok now you made me tell you LOL. I dont like the shape of the cockpit though...I might change that. The 'wings' are hydrofoils...I am still deciding what shape they will be. The tail fin is for steering...though I might get rid of that entirely.

cheers bullet

And TD you are as bad as me LOL...GUNS..he he he he he...how about a fishing rod or 3 instead.

Thanks CG...dunno....Im not happy with it the more I look at it......hmmmmm the cockpit is really doing my head in.....I might try another draft at lunchtime....I do the drafts in planar shapes then start to work on them...so they are templates more than anything.

Cheers bullet

hey bullet you could try making the cockpit more stream line and make the tail fin form from the cock pit and work its way back. I am not sure if that really explained anything, if I have a chance in the next few days I will show you what I mean, unless you come up with an idea by then.

Im an Engineering Surveyor my friend LOL and I am quite used to the change of plans and draft after draft LOL....yes it is boring but you get used to it...LOL. It will be the model...as I draft I get things very close to position then its just a matter of snapping points together...then the detail starts...he he he he...

When you see the amount of points and lines I have to edit when I recieve an AutoCAD design file...well Maya is nothing really...points wise....its a lot more stressful trying to get pipes under roads on their correct lines and roads in the right place etc etc...Maya is fun....even if it is boring mate...no stress.

cheers bullet
