Hi! :)
First idea. Not really sure about it, but it looks ok to start something.

something that could be integrated in the scene...

I choose to model the ship using nurbs.( This method seems much faster than using polys to get a "precise" result for object like this one )

I like it! Well done. Scale looks appropriate, and the design is unique and interesting. the middle fuselage has a slight hint of a "cylon raider" (or my mind is simply to full of sci-fi stuff). In any case, with beefy engines like that, I can't help but like it.

Looks great so far, I really like your modeling progress. The concept looks like it will have some nice action and the bug looks cool.
The engines look great, but remind me a little of current day engines and not the future. Is there going to be and engine on both wings?

11-09-2004, 05:04 PM
your model is looking great, clear shape, enough detail, very nice, but how does it keep balance or is there still a part missing?
the spider bot concept is wicked great job! :applause:
and I like the scene concept, really takes you on a ride or should I say flight, keep it up :thumbsup:

love the model, not sure if it's a practical place for the engine, although I like the break in symmetry wouldn't it spin with it out there......ahhh forget it, it just looks cool :thumbsup:

Great concept sketch, has a lot of energy. Modeling is looking great. Cool designs:thumbsup:

Thanx for the comments and support!!! :bounce:

Yes, I want to do something that reminds existing things to give more credibility at this impossible model. I don't know if it's a good way...
The single big booster on the right wing is only there for the look. Obviously, this model couldn't fly more than two meters in the real world and I can bet that nobody would give 1$ to build something like that ( except of course switzerland air forces ) :)

( otacon: your cat looks cool!! :thumbsup: )

Fou-z-y Amin! :D

When is the next update?

12-03-2004, 10:26 PM
I like the break in symm too! Nice model... Waiting for next update.

I'm not sure if this ships works, because it would breake some engineering and physics laws, but it look svery original and nice! great! And I can't wait to see the bug in 3d:twisted:
