Still a lot of tweeking to do and one or two more guns, might make the form of the hull around the turret tighter?

Hi Bullet
At the moment the area around the turrets are round I could make it that the edges are a little or a lot sharper so you will see more clearer the shape...............dave

can 1 of you define hard surface modelling for me?? I have seen a vid where the guys says TRUE hard surface modelling omits ANY smoothing?? is this the case or is it bullshit??

I thought hard surface models were anything that basically wasnt organic...ie cars, trucks, planes etc?? or am I in the wrong room on that one.

Cheers bullet

Yes Ben that did come in handy am using hot keys a lot more still have to work on cleaning my mesh but I am getting there, Bullet I think I have asked this question myself. I did try to start this model without using the 3 button but in the end I gave in. Not all my is smoothed, turrets, gattling gun ballels and some other small parts, I did ask ctbram when to use the 3 button and when not to I think his reply was experiance. I have tried to find tutorials on hard edge modelling (not using the 3 button) no real luck yet...........dave

Bullet: Im in the same room as you on that one. To my mind, as you say, hard surface modelling is just 'non-organic', basically man-made stuff, as opposed to natural stuff. I would say, whether smoothed or not, i.e, with beveled edges perhaps, or sub-divided at some point, a table is going to be a hard-surface model. Organic modelling to me is, you know, people, plants, , that kind of thing. As with everything I say though I would add the disclaimer of: dont take my word for it!!
