Nailed the cockpit, but the wings still need work. Need to taper 'em off around the edges and all. Mind posting some shots from different angles? Namely from the back and the bottom.

Also does this mod of yours need a Mengqin? I'm working on one at the moment.

Re: First Aerotech Fighter Ahab (Your Opinions)
Looks good but I have 2 critiques:
- smooth the front edge of the wings. It's too straight right now.
- in the concept art the cockpit looks very smooth and rounded. In yours, the windows seem to pop up and break that roundiness a bit.

During the modeling stages and for showing the model I generally use an AOBake instead of a texture. It really helps you notice the details and see if the smoothing is correct. I use blender, and it's quite easy to do a lightmap unwrap and bake the ambient oclussion while modeling. Once you're done with the model you can UV map it correctly.
And you can use p3d (http://p3d.in/) to show your model in 3d if you want.

Good work so far and keep it up! :yes:

Please don't use Imageshack. Tinypic or Photobucket or anything but Imageshack.

You got the cockpit perfect and the smoothed edge of the wing make it look much more real. :yes:

However, I think you have a little smoothing problem on the protrusion in the fuselage just above the wing. It looks a little faceted (red circle). I can't tell for sure, but that thing I marked with the green circle seems to be just floating around.


The rest seems good to me.

Most interestink! I always thought Aerotech would work pretty well in the FS engine.

Also, I found a bunch of free Battletech models at one point, which could conceivably be converted. They're currently in .3ds format. Problem is, they might have geometry problems in game, and I'm honestly not sure how to check reliably...  :nervous:

Are you planning to do any of the Liao trio? (Thrush, Transgressor, and/or Transit) Actually a better question is, what era are you aiming for?

Re: Aerotech Fighters Update 07.oct.12 (Model Trident)
I'd say it's a better looking aerospace vehicle than the Ahab. Because I was tempted to try Aerotech on the grounds that it was more economical than Warhammer, would you care to identify what some of the fighter miniatures on this page? I always thought they were quite appealing designs in comparison to many of the designs I've seen on sarna.net:

It's the Duke Nukem Forever of prophecies..."


"Jesus saves.

Re: Aerotech Fighters Update 07.oct.12 (Model Trident)
I did bring up the miniatures because I was curious about what they were, acually. So, if you do care to name them, that would be quite appreciated.

...I do wish they'd list dimensions for the vehicles, rather than just the masses of the vehicles. You've got quite the grey area to traverse in this, and I wish you the best of luck in doing it.

Thanks! I was always a bit curious about the un-named miniatures I've seen for Battletech.
