Default 3 birds (Buck Rogers)

This is a quick render of my completed starfighters .. some of you know that this design was considered for the Viper design.

That's pretty spectacular. Lovely work!


I've been looking all around for a decent resin kit of the Thunderfighter in studio scale (but they're SO far out of my price range that its not a liklihood I'll have one soon).

I've been considering having a pattern made up via a 3-d router. It would require a large amount of finishing work, but it'd get me to the end result by providing the major body shapes in scale.

The trick is, of course, that it would require a high-quality CG model to run the program from...

Hmmm....

Also: anybody do a CG model of a landram?

I love them! I have downloaded the models and hope to do something with them at some point. There is something in my mind (video-wise) and its just finding the time to do it.

Thanks Taranis so much for making them, and even more so for sharing.

I want to do some textures .. but basic .. Texturing is still a weak point for me.

Dave I am delight to share them giving something back to the community

The only way you're going to get better is to keep plugging away at it.

Excellent models btw.
