That's your low res structure? Stop showing off, ass.
That Front Landing Gear has a few complex shapes as single cast pieces, so they were built as Sub-D objects, same with the tire, ... good for close-ups of the aircraft. So for renders as close as you see in the Landing Gear WIP pic, it's 130k at full res .... but for distance shots, the Sub-D can be turned off, ... knocking off about 60% of the poly count, with the parts structure still looking the same, but without the extra polys ... This is important, considering the amount of hi-res aircraft that will be on deck .. The LOD can be controlled depending on the shot, not just for the Jets, as this principle will apply for most of the project ...
@ Tobian & Wiz:
Even though my Rig has some power under the hood, .. A project of this scope, and intended detail level, .. I still have to be careful ...
Thanks mate, ... No, I've not seen it before, .. appreciate the heads-up on that Vid ! ... I've taken plenty of screen captures from the bluray movie, but the wishbone area was never that great for clarity... I've already got that area roughed out, ... but this extra bit of reference will be very useful for the finer details and accuracy .. Cheers !
Below is an updated pic of the Alpha Jet Front Landing Gear ( just accuracy tweaks ) ... Once I've got the house moving out of the way, .. will be working toward posting some new updates ...

I wish I had even HALF of your talent.
That is amazing.
No way sir!
Me and DCB are coming around, and we're gonna move your sh*t, and then you get these updates coming thick and fast!
Might even bring me some Ethel, that bitch can move boxes like there is no tomorrow, she mutters a lot and may threaten to kill your family but that's just her thing, also she smells of cat wee...
I do have enough to get the Quinjet built ... you'll see an initial low-res version for upcoming renders on the low-res Helicarrier deck for placement ...
Don't talk to me about Ethel and her finger, I've got my own issues with Ethel .... Unfortunately she caught me one night lurking in the shadows, .. once she clamped on, ... she initiates with a kiss, ... which sounds innocent, but Ethel's kiss is like no other ... and while my tongue was desperately trying to escape, finding one of the many gaps in her teeth ... the sensation was like fossicking through rough coral ... resistance was futile .. it's like kissing an industrial suction pump ...
Once the ordeal was over, ... I crawled back to my cell, closed my padded door, ... then inspected my mangled tongue using a small shaving mirror, ... and I kid you not, it was at least 2 inches longer, ... but I got off lightly, ... I've heard some of the patients here have lost their tongue completely ...
OK, I took a snapshot (pic below) for your assigned areas to unpack my stuff, ... and if you lose sight of Ethel, .... use your beeper, and stay out of the shadows ....

You can also hear the scrape of her lazy leg as it drags behind, but don't let that fool you, she can sure pick up the pace once she has the scent. I was dropping off your hi-fi and Video player when I got lost on the way back to the truck in one of them dark areas and she pounced; she kept shouting Jaaaas be gentle with me this time...
I barely escaped with my life, now where do you want your Atari 2600 putting?
Yeah, but you didn't stick around long enough to hear what followed >> ..... me shouting "HELL NO" ... as I repeatedly beat a crowbar over her head ....
Now that we've re-grouped, ... Ethel is out there somewhere, so stay frosty, .... I want Rifles slung, .. Flame Units only ... hang on ... boxes are made of wood, .. no Flame Units ... come to think of it, we haven't got rilfles either, ... I've upgraded your beepers to Motion Trackers, .. so if the blip gets too close .... RUN !
Remember people, .. We got a job to do here ....
Right next to the Sinclair Spectrum cassette collection .... and mind me Lava Lamp ...
I'm hi-jacking my own thread here ... better get back to work .... :runs:
Update for the Alpha Jet, (pic below) .... The paint color is only being used for WIP renders, ... The S.H.I.E.L.D paint scheme will appear on the completed model .... Currently finishing off the Rear Landing Gear, and will post close-up renders of that for the next update, ...
*EDIT* - Updated WIP Pic - Post #78
Yes, it can be referred to as the Main Landing Gear ... and will be showing a close-up of that soon ! ...

Made an Initial start to the Quinjet, ...
*EDIT* - Updated Pic - Post #90
Hopefully I'll have the head sorted soon, ... and will update that pic in a few days ... The Quinjet will be fun to rig, ... there's quite a lot going on when it engages the VTOL controls, .. I plan to do an animation of it landing later ...
'ass'? Durak! The word is zastranitz, bublichka. :devil:
You'll see that it is, ... when you compare it to the high detail version later .. ...
