this might be useful.

Thanks hyp3rfocus. However, those blueprints (from "essential guide to vehicles & vessels") are way too inaccurate. But they do have a lot of interesting information.
Anyways, here's an update:

I love speeder bikes. I almost started to do an Endor scene with them. The model looks like it's starting out well

looking good, your bike looks nice, can't wait to see more.

Very nice work yoda. Looking forward to seeing it when it is finished.

I'd like to see a wireframe, myself.

06 June 2007, 01:41 AM
thanks guys. I've been slowly adding the details on the front of the bike. I also started the scout trooper yesterday.

06 June 2007, 05:30 AM
Phew, lookin good. Great details on the bike mechanisms.

06 June 2007, 05:37 PM
Loving this one. Keep it up.

06 June 2007, 02:46 PM
Nice biker scout helmet.
The detail in the bike is looking good as well

06 June 2007, 01:47 AM
Here's and update on the scout trooper and the bike. The Bike is nearly finished. All that's left are the control panel and the cloth thing in the back, plus other minor details that I cant find references for. There was exactly one frame in the movie that gave me the details i needed to model part of the front mechanism.

bike looks good, but check you're Scout Trooper's height proportions. He looks really short compared to what he should be.

06 June 2007, 03:45 AM
Agreed, the bike is just fantastic - love the linkages - but the scout is too short. Most people are 7 heads tall, give or take, and I measured yours around 6.

06 June 2007, 04:27 AM
Thanks. I actually was thinking that right after I posted. I scaled down the helmet a bit an made the legs a tad longer. But remember that the head is smaller than the helmet.

06 June 2007, 03:25 AM
Here's an early version of what I'm going for. The bike still needs texturing and there is a holster-thing on the right boot

06 June 2007, 03:31 AM
wow, very nice yodajared. This is coming together quite nicely. Good lighting.

06 June 2007, 05:50 AM
wow looking really good =) i agree he seems a bit short in the un-posed shots... and not just his leg but his torso looks a bit short too i think... altho in the posed shot it isn't as bad... the legs still look a biiit short in my opinion... lookin great tho esp that latest render :thumbsup:

Final Image:

looks awesome good luck =)

07 July 2007, 02:17 AM
Final image looks good.
my only comment would be throwing a foresty hdri for the scout to catch some green reflection on his suit.
Image is not merging as well now.

A nice clean entry. Well done.:thumbsup:
