Sopwith Camel WIP

I've been working on this model on and off for quite some time now. Here are a couple of clay renders. Any comments welcome. I'll upload some more shots later. The next step after finishing the modelling is to use Quixel Suite for materials and texturing.

I started with the engine. I wanted to practice modelling mechanical bits. Down the road I decided that what the heck, I'll make the whole plane.

Wow, your attention to detail is so well done, what program are you using to model? If possible I'd love to see a wire frame for the engine part it looks so clean.

I'm modelling everything in 3dsMax. The attention to detail drives me crazy sometimes. I think that I'm done with a part. I look at the reference pictures again and damn, missed that latch or bolt or something

First go at the prop texture

The attention to detail is really paying off, the model looks amazing. Are you doing your textures in keyshot?

I'm using Quixel to get a hang of it. The tricky part will be rendering it with Mental Ray. The prop came out quite ok but I'm having issues with the metallic materials due to the PBR workflow of Quixel. All part of the learning experience I guess.

Finally made some progress. First go at the complete engine texturing.
I see that I'll have to work some more on the main block.

Slowly chugging along with this. A great learning experience.
