Hey all ,
i have posted this model before ,but i hope in this forum i get some more detailed crits and help :)
the model is a "suhoi" su 27 ,russian aeroplane ,which
i modeled about a week ago (1 week of modeling) ,i am nearly done the modeling (do not plan on making wheel system) and am preparing to go further to texture ,lit and compsite well.
as far now ,i would apprecaite crits on the modeling ,
few things i have allrdy spotted and just havent had the time ,the armor is a tad small ,the back "engines" are not modeled sepately they are a cylndar with extrude ,so some people told me i should model it as it really is ,so i will chanage this ,and last thing the bottom of the plane ,the continues of the "main cylnder" of the plane ,should end a bit more thin and faster ,so i will chanage that.

any other crits i would love to hear ,thank you very much.

tools - Softimage xsi 3.5

and a wire frame :

small btw : the wing area is a bit messy wire wise ,because
of the 'hands' of the bombs ,what holds them ,but i plan to revisit all this part to get better topology.

erm? it didn't allow me to post more pictures?
anyways here they are.

Looks great. Is that mesh a bit unven near the cockpit? Otherwise coolness :thumbsup:

First, the nozzles look off, they should be much sharper, remember they are plates of thick metal, one over the other in a circular fashion, and two, dont depend so much on meshsmooth, it makes the modeler lazier. And the cockpit is way to bulgy, undefined.

Good start.

Looks good! Will you be texturing it?

I think the plane lacks a lot of details such a panel lines and there are all sorts of small instruments like antennas and light... and yeah the missles are wwwwwwwwwayyy to small !
modellin over all looks clean other than the wings, which seem to have 2 few polygons for an aerofoil shape and are messy

oh, since you are using XSI, lay off the geometric approximations, for your own sake :-)
