    you should model the wings piece by piece.
    isolate one tiny bit, model it, place it, focus on another one, do it place it, etc.

    detailing is the same workarround. one bit at a time.

    did the wing individually just have difficulty either looking too smooth or too choppy the best part about the wings is I only have to model one and then can mirror it I just have problem with the geometry

    This is the best method I find

    ok I see what your saying i was trying to just extrude from a single geometry which especially for this model just is not working

    updates with better lighting changed wing design thanks for the tips
  • jeffabbyjeffabby61 Posts: 32Member
    updated wing design including wing down position

    can you post a shot showing lines and hidden geometry? I can give you better constructive crit then. I tried to model this in sketchup years ago when I first started and failed miserably lol, nice to see somebody doing better!

    I hear you this is try #4 but with some good advice I am getting closer to the look how do I do the hidden geometry thing you are speaking of I have never done that but would be happy to do it if it helps

    updated guns and beveled wings did some beveling shipside also.changed some aspects of the ship the primary engine the size and position of the guns the original guns were always to large for the ships so made four sets instead of 2.

    Go to view and click on Hidden Geometry and you can export a pic with all the mesh lines in it.

  • cavebearcavebear178 Posts: 623Member
    Hmm, now that is a different effect from what I was expecting! :) Interesting though.

    changed secondary engine vents cleaned up some of the body geometry and went with a two engine array. updated texturing to a differnet texture set.
  • cavebearcavebear178 Posts: 623Member
    I really like that red marble like texture you are using. Looks very good on this model:thumb:
  • jeffabbyjeffabby61 Posts: 32Member
    thanks man used a dual layer texture looking to clean up some of the geometry and hopefully be close to done still trying to find a good emblem if you know of any let me know.
