3DBlakes 7 - The Liberator

edited August 2011 in Work in Progress #1
My very first attempt at a Ship, and in fact I'm pretty much a beginner when it comes to 3D modeling. This is as far as I have got so far - basic shape is ok I think but I have a lot of detail to add, and then the part that worries me the most, the texturing!

Any feedback welcome!

    You'll find that most of the detail on the Libeartor was texture, a lot of painted on panel lines but very few kit parts and the like. You seem to have nailed the basic shape alright though !!

    Thanks, and that's interesting - I am still getting to grips with the concepts of texturing so I guess this will be a good way to learn! I'm working from some pretty awful TV screenshots so I couldn't tell if there was real geometry there or not.

    Here's the link to Martin Bower, the guy who built most of the original miniature Blake's 7

    Looking good. I always enjoying seeing new Blake's 7 projects.

    Thanks guys, I'll keep you posted on progress and will no doubt have a few questions as I work through this!

    Glazy, thanks a lot for the link, I somehow missed that when I was googling for all this stuff, there are some excellent reference images there!

    nice bro - did you model all the cilinders and cones and add them or did you start with one shape and extruded the rest
    I like B7
