Hi here my latest work ...
It's flying car. I can't say any more about this project (hope my boss will not burn me for that) :)

Wow! Very shiny!! Nice design, I like the wheel assembly. One thing I noticed though is the reflection looks a bit strange... Well, keep up the good work!

Yea ... The design is bit strange, but it's was supplied by client. The funny thing that this car is seriously developed :)

cool!
wait, they really makind this thing? how its gonna fly? no wings. Hover? - nothing for stability.

This image can help ...
As i say i cant say any technical descriptions. The firm have some prototype that will fly up to 50 cm so far :)http://lobster.ls.huji.ac.il/~eugeny/CGTalk_junk/Adventure_03.jpg

How is roll going to be controlled? Gyros? Did they fly a scale model 50cm or a full scale version?

Really Really well done! - I like it!
Maybe the fan blades are a bit thin? I don't know anything about the original spec though so I could be wronge. ;)

Here is the URL (http://www.turbohawk.com) of client.
It's contain some PDF with technical explanations...

I made the blades from images of real fan that used on prototype.

Worked here.

Dude, that is some seriously messed up stuff.

Can you imagine the new spin on Road Rage??

Eugeny, can you give them some nice renders for the website and delete the onces that are there.

another comment but not to the model. To the real project of that thing. I really dont understand why they even waste time and money on these flying cars. We cant even control the " todays" cars that dont fly. I really dont see how that thing could be safe at all not to mention to make it fly :) We cant stop things that fly. Few of these flying cars on one block street and crash testing begins. But what the hell do i know ... :)

We (Adventure Publishing) will make the new site for these guys - it's the next our project .

Them trying to explain on each exhibition (and also u can hear this on the movie that i made) that this is not another flying car - it's new flying solution. And the first (and primary) application for this "flying solution" is ambulance or rescue vehicle.
It's really funny why them wasting time and money for this - them real fans of this stuff, but if u don't know most car makers doing research on this area - it's pretty clear that this kind of vehicles is future .

Btw. Thank u guys for good words about this work

PS. the link is OK

yeah Eu,and you are endangering the 21st century's most revolutionary prototype by showing it off to the millions

but despite all your notable 3D efforts Eu,thier machine has a flying potential of a wet brick http://www.aoikenso.net/ap/cg/biggrin.gif

I don't say that this is most revolutionary prototype - them say this ...
... and the reason on which I can't say any technical descriptions - I have signed the document on nondisclosure technical information about this project .
Then i say that the these type of vehicles is future i don't meant exactly this type of car - i mean flying cars (like 5th element or in Star wars). I'm too weary skeptical about flying potential of this vehicle ( i even cal this project "flying bath") but who's care then client pay the money :)

I believe I failed to meantion the main thing that was of interest to you, I do like the work that you did on the model. Looks great. And after seeing their website, they could really benefit from having some better representations of it like you're doing. On the technical side, I also understand your inablility to disclose any information. I currently work in the aerospace field....looking at this model (and idea in general) I can see a future in these types of flying vehicles. However, on this one particularly I question just one thing. Beyond assuming safety, pilot training and computer controlled actions, can you tell me what is physically giving this vehicle roll control? I can see where the thrust, pitch and yaw are being developed from. But I can't see how these fans are giving control to roll. Do the two big fans in the main fuselage tilt any? Is there some other means of controlling roll like gyro's perhaps? This may be beyond what you can disclose and if that's the case I understand. I'm just curious if you can explain it.

Thanks,
Court
