3DBTL-B Y-wing (WIP)

It's that time of year again where I try to take up 3d modelling again. Last time I tried making something similar I swiftly ended up with a mass of unmanageable topology.

I'll try and do a better job of it this time

    Looks like your off to a good start.

    Yep, it looks like a great start. :)

    Thank you very much for the kind words :3

    More work on the nacelles and a bit of messing about with emitter materials:

    Of all of the Star Wars vehicles, from all of the movies, the Y-Wing will always be my favorite. From that first moment I saw it on the big screen, I immediately fell in love. A close second was the B-Wing, from ROTJ...guess I have a thing for odd-looking space ships. :)

    I'm a big Y-Wing fan myself, especially the original design. But, I like how they showed on Clone Wars what they looked like with all of their armor.

    The build is looking good. Sometimes, you can spend as long working on glows and other materials as you can modeling. (sometimes even longer)

    My favorite Star Wars ships are the Imperial Lambda class Shuttle Tydirium and the Hammerhead Corvette. Your Y-Class is really coming along.

    I haven't done the Lambda Class but have done a HHC.

    Remodelled the cockpit to have better topology and blended it with the turret and guns. Quick and dirty animation just for fun and to see if I can rig a turret correctly.

    Next to do is mostly just panelling and greebles

    It looks good. I like the animation, it definitely looks rigged correctly.
