You Should increase the iterations on the ?handle? on the front of the ski.

Maybe you should add some more hydraulics to the ski... if itīs for military it has to look unbreakable and stronger !
And the whole ski could use a meshsmooth or something like that...

Good start. Now you need a steering control arm and maybe large support going towards the back of the vehicle to stablize against a forward force, something like in these snowmobile pictures:

I hope you're making a Nazi war machine. Not that Nazi's are cool (social ideas) but their technology was awesome. I want to see a big blocky sheet metal body with turrets and long radio antennas. It should be a WWII scout/command vehicle for the Russian front.

Heh sorry, I'm comandeering your ideas... show more when you build it.

sweet pics Idiot King ill seee what i can incorporate as for the ski being segmented its just a placeholder the real one will be better looking as for more hydrolics i may do 2 shocks one on either side of the wishbone support arms the overall look of the vehicle as i picture it will be something like a jet powered hummer on skis im not shure whare ill put the jets though but i did have an idea of just having one jet in the center of the vehicle running its length kinda like a mig with the body being built around the engine im not shure how it would look with a hummer esque body though any suggestions on that would be helpfull

thanks for the replys guys keep em comming

ok added the stearing arm and some more supports and bushings whare they were needed and a plate with bolts to connect the suspension to the ski. i put a meshsmooth on the ski so it looks better until i finalise the ski design and do it properly

That vehicle looks pretty heavy. I would suggest scaling up those nice skis so that it doesn't sink into the snow.

good point im going for a mercinary type look to it so im going to do piece mail type armor on it kinda like the windshield but some will be off angels and welded instead of bolted ect speaking of welding anyone have a good way to make the welds?i think im going to try and do the intirior as well but i havent decided yet i will be redoing the gun on top to be more realistic
