space cargo freighter WIP


#1

hi,

Been chipping away at this for a few weeks, concept by myself, basically its a short range space freighter designed to carry small cargos. Still got tons to add but would like feedback/comments on the overall look/modelling.

Thanks,

looks cool, surprised no1 has posted yet, i like it, its gonna look a whole lot better with a texture, its just kind of hard to tell where the model is going at this point, other than that it looks good:thumbsup:

Good start. I assume that the empty area in the rear of the craft is the cargo bay. Since it is not streamlined you woudl need subcraft to make deliveries or land planetside. I always think of those things. What is the scale? I think I see windows that woudl set it toi be the size of a large aircraft? Get some cool textures. Make a specular map too that really adds to the model particularly in animation.

Thanks,

your correct, there is windows on the front cabin (render dosent show very well) and the ship would be comparable to a large aircraft maybe slightly larger. The ship has large mounted hydraulics which allows the rear to adjust size to suit cargo container (ship currently fully extended). Still got loads of detail to add. Will post more updates soon.

Thanks,
Gordon

yes a very nice design unusual and different from the more common designs but still looking interesting and functional.

Thanks for reading,
