    Looking great, personally though I would like to see a full sized picture that didn't have all the other references in it.

    You've put a lot of hard work into this, but you are not showing it off as well as you could.

    IMO.

    Damit!! The web site hosting the pic's is blocked from work. I'll have to check this out when I get home. :(

    Looking good!!
    Just can't understand why we haven't gotten an official, good-looking toy or model of this yet.

    I agree with biotech. It's looking fantastic, so why not show it off with some nice big renders. You don't really need to show the references anymore at this stage.

    I guess maybe this doesn't meet the "good looking" qualifier - http://herocomplex.latimes.com/2012/06/09/comic-con-exclusive-hasbro-goes-big-with-super-hellicarrier/

    The scale looks a tad off....

    Heh, looks shockingly bad. Looks like they may have to build a toy based off of this model when it is finished, looking at the state of that atrocity.

    Sorry for the lack of updates, ... been busy with stuff outside this project ... but to kick-start the thread again, I've done a quick compact update showing renders that are about 7 weeks old, ... just to show some progress done back then ... The renders have intentionally been kept small since this is only, what I'm calling the Pre-Build, as prep for the High detail version ....

    So take this update as just roughing it out, .. the real fun begins with the hi-res version, where accuracy and the finer details will be seen in larger renders ....

    I've also started work on the hi-res Alpha Jet, which I'll post some renders of soon, ... Those will give a better idea of where I'm taking this project with regards to detail ....

    Cheers !

    I love the detail... I just wouldn't want to be a pilot on the helicarrier. You miss your trap, you get sucked into the upper left fan and die!

    Beautiful work Jas. Good to see you back around too.:)

    Welcome back!
    That last wip rendering, presented as it is, makes me think it was made to be put in a magazine, like 3d world mag, for example. ;)
  • tobiantobian226 Posts: 1,600Member
    Such lovely details. Loving all the little girders and struts you have in there! The undercut section will likely be a complete mare, as all the windows have rooms clearly visible inside! FUN!

    Wow, another reason to eagerly check back on Sci fi Meshes on a daily basis :) Bah, need to make time for a new project, seeing this sort of stuff gets my 3d juices flowing (oo-er)... :)

    And check this out :) http://designtaxi.com/news/353424/A-S-H-I-E-L-D-Helicarrier-From-The-Avengers-That-Is-Capable-Of-Flying/

    My train of thinking went something along the lines of "not another bloody necro... OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    No, really.

    Sweet work as always. Nice to see you back and progressing with it!

    I wonder how that compares to the helicarrier from Sky Captain...
  • FreakFreak1077 Posts: 4,353Member
    This is just out standing.
    Really loving the level of detail on this.
  • BinkermanBinkerman0 Posts: 0Member
    Thanks very much guys ! :thumb: ...

    Updates are a bit slow at the moment, due to other things I've got going on, ... Also, working on multiple models at the same time for the Helicarrier, ... so there'll be various things posted, sometimes the actual Helicarrier, and other times will be assets for it, such as this update, showing part of the Hi-Res Alpha Jet being built ...

    Cheers

    Nice! I f you're applying this level of detail to the whole project it is going to be a sumptuous end product indeed, and I suspect it'll be well worth the wait.

    Keep up the good work. Looking forward to seeing the final render in 2030.
  • PearsePearse0 Posts: 0Member
    Wow, she's coming along very nicely. I reckon you could put some textures on what you have so far and (in views of the top at least) it'd already be hard to distinguish from the movie model.
  • BinkermanBinkerman0 Posts: 0Member
    Cheers guys !

    Got back to the Alpha Jet Front Landing Gear recently to finish that, along with a few adjustments here and there ... so new renders done (below) ....

    @TALON_UK:

    Yeah, the Landing Gear pic is only to show where I'm taking the project with detail level ... so there's going to be plenty of close-ups down the track ...

    All the Best for 2013 ! :thumb:

    Indeed, going to be an immense project, just imagining the whole Hellicarrier with this sort of level of detail is just mind blowing. How many tris/polygons are in this landing gear alone?

    Looking forward to seeing more.
  • tobiantobian226 Posts: 1,600Member
    Impressive detail set! The poly count for this is going to be mental!
  • ChrisGFXChrisGFX171 Posts: 0Member
    wow, very nice details there!

    Hey Binkerman, have you seen this? Provides a couple of nice upskirts of ILM's Helicarrier model:
