Nice details on the gun! :thumbsup:

My crit: The only thing that's buggin me is the ground texture. You gotta scale it down alot...

:) nice detail on the gun itself, but the camera angle is a little weird. it looks like the barrel is way too short.

also, the textures are a bit too rusty for may taste:)
german artillery and AA-guns were mostly "steingrau", stone-grey.

keep it up!

textures are a bit too rusty

Seppomatik, that canon in the pic you posted almost looks chromish! Weren't german AAA canon field grey?

that looks like a tabletop model to me, i think seppomatik posted it to give russo a reference to the correct barrel lenght.

is this a completed scene? things that bother me:
1) the texture on the cannon, as ppl have mentioned, is a bit too rusty & uniform
2) the ammunition on the ground seem to have the same texture as the gun? i suppose the shells were made of brass or something (at least the shell casings)
3) the ground plating scale, as mentioned
4) the lighting, but i'm guessing it's temporary (as with other things i said, methinks) - just a spotlight thrown in

the model looks great! you planning to use it in a larger scene?

looks pretty good.

You seem to have posted two pictures, one with the lighting a little bit too dark and one with the lighting a little bit too bright.

The light balance needs work, but the textureing and modeling are very good!

iīm sorry for the confusion my attached pic started here!

offcourse it was only meant as reference. itīs propably a tabletop model of some kind and yes, as i already stated in my first post, german artillery and AA-Guns used to be "steingrau", as the color was called by the german military at that time. i guess itīs just grey anyway :p

so, with all the hype around your picture, russo, itīs time to show us some more!:thumbsup:

hehe seppomatik, your cannon is pretty different, my 88mm is from the II World War I used and very old book as reference, and I had only one angle to make it :eek:

I made the model and I've tested many textures, a lot of textures were good in that weapon, but the original color is gray

guess that is natural the rusty texture, is a very old cannon heheh, but you're right is too rusty :bounce:

Lovely line drawing :) I like it.

nice scale model:

Its getting there but as u see from the pics, it needs a longer and thicker barrel. :)

my scanner is not working now :thumbsdow
but as soon as it's possible I'll scan and post here my reference image. These pics are some kind of new version of my cannon. My cannon is a "grandfather" of the 88mm :p

Hey Russo,

It's looking good. Could you post a side view and top view, too?
Also, is this a fisnished work or a WIP. If it's a WIP, you might be better off posting it to that forum.


04 April 2002, 08:56 AM
Alec, It's not a WIP, I'm showing other renders from my model, my finished model of a II World War german's cannon 88mm,
As you can see the image below, I made only what the reference image allowed to make, the red arrows show the area I could not see
