Ok Jay...Im in.

I havent found an image yet! Im still looking...but I will go with the idea of my Spitfire in a hangar/field scene ok?? Im still looking for some good images of WW2 kinda places.

Here are a few things I will build for the scene...the drum...and pump...a couple of chairs and maybe a table...to give it an 'alive' feel. I still dont know how the hell to composite but I will try.

Cheers bullet

good luck all

Not a bad start bullet. The back of the chairs look a little too thin at the moment. I actually figured you'd end up modeling a bridge to put in a photo, haha.

Nothing wrong with the chairs all I am saying that all the picture I have seen ever chair was differant no sets, If you think about it the chairs they had were scrounged from the locals in that area. I did try to find you some main photos but not much luck...........dave

Thanks Jay,

I will do a couple of teacups and the hose to the plane...then find an image somewhere and try the tut you did (thanks a heap BTW)....and then texture the objects properly. I will get the angles and lighting right first and finish the textures last...should have enough time

cheers bullet
