Been awhile, have no idea what im doing with life. Feeling a bit down, so am starting up maya again while i get over it. My old model/ half finished. Starting block out inside. Dont know if i should add much more detail as i'm really just looking to get a good animation and texture from this model. Is modeling the cockpit a bit over the top?

Thanks antiant
I dont have huge knowledge in this area. I think i will just layout the map usiing maya and take it over to photoshop and add textures. Prob a easier way, so you might need to give me some pointers along the way
Was going to just animate a simple village scene and have the chinook fly in and hover for a few seconds. So all this detail prob wont be seen in the animation
Cheers man
