Default R@nSiD - Winter Challenge

OK...

Not been on for a long long time (long story).

So here goes.. The Red Bull Air Race
:attn: :bandit: :bow: :p :blush:

For those who don't know what that is. Its a stunt Ari Race, Where contestants take a plane through a slalom course and try to do it in the fastest time.


Heres a link to a the tracks and a fly through in Arizona.

Red Bull Air Race

These Guys are NUTS!!!

That is a seriously cool idea, are you going to go for an action shot, as if paused in mid air?

Finished the basic blocking of the body and have moved onto Detailing. Fuselage and Wings are now SubD and the rest is polys...

Next is a little detailing and the wheels... (or undercarriage if u will ):blush:

Default Very Nice!

Have you thought of the environment for this race?
Definitely go for something sunny with lots of visual effects
Plus, I don't think it works with the Red Bull Air Race, but two planes in one scene chasing each other would be nice.
