XP 55 AirPlane Moi3d/EIAS

Hey guys, Been working on a model that I've always found interesting looking, a curtis wright xp 55 experimental plane(1950's or so?).
I've been building it in Moi3d. I think Im about finished with the main body shape.... wings are just temporary at this point.
Let me know what you think so far!
thanks
Mike Fitz

Hi Mike,

Looks pretty good so far. T cockpit window area has a lot of nicely rounded edges. This is going to be very cool.

Hi Mike,
Nice model. Was it rendered in Moi3D? I like the green material. Is it an EI material?

It's nice. I like the shape of it.

Hey guys, thanks for taking the the time to reply!

Buggsy - the model was exported from moi3d as obj files, a quick run through transporter and into EIAS for rendering.
Will post more as I go.
thanks!

To quote one of my wife's favorite characters... "Impressive. Most impressive."

I'm not familiar with the aircraft, but it is a very cool design.

hey guys thanks for the comments. all are very appreciated!

Richard, thanks for the links. One of them, from the higher angle could have come in handy when I was putting the rear air intake together. I had to follow the reference from a model airplane kit and it was exactly as it is on my model. But it does not reflect the real piece, which I may go back now and remodel.
thanks for the links!

That's super cool. I want one.

I'm sure you saw the missing rivet behind the cockpit window and already made the correction...
Keep it up, it's looking great!
