Jay, those holes at the rear of the wings will hopefully make more sense in the final design but i agree if i cant utilize them correctly i may close them up. They are supposed to be engines.

My plans for the final design is a somewhat solid body with most items mounted to it. I hope the final looks like it does in my mind.

Added a little more detail and fleshed it out. Cleaned the mesh up significantly. Tweaking some more then to the small details.

Looks great twisteddragon. It seems to have a starwars flavor to it. Are you using references from it?

It does look like starwars to me too, but im not using any references anymore. My original references were for a hove rbike idea that i scrapped so im just going off random sketches ive been doing.

I decided to do away with the intake on the front. it looked like a giant bugle or something so i took it out. Added some detail to the wings.

I want to make the vehicle look like a giant three pronged flying blade like a sai or a trident. So im trying for a sharp, blade like feeling over the whole thing.

Well it does look like the pitchfork I bought yesterday...though it looks a whole lot deadlier mate...looking nice shapewise..it certainly looks 'sharper' without the scoop I agree.

cheers bullet

I liked the previous design better twisteddragon. It had a X-wing/ Jedi star fighter feel to it, but you went and changed it...............

I agree it had more of a starwars feel to it, but i wanted a Speed feel to it. I rarely got the sense of speed in starwars(with the exception of speeder bikes of course).

I may go back and modify the nose again but for now its good.

Changed some of the design a bit, shortened the main body a bit and incorperated the engine inside the body. Changed the shape of the wing blades a little but those may be tweaked more.


I want more detail on the wings im just not sure what to do with them...
