Makes me a little weak at the knees. Just the best. My goodness!! Google should be proud that you use their product. This is clearly an example of the best of the best. Thanks for the show...I feel lucky to have a free ticket!

Thanks for posting your machine specs. I was just getting ready to ask when I read that. It's encouraging to know that you can do really exceptional work w/o a beast of a computer. I'm actually running the same thing except an 8800 graphics card.

How about your file size 30 Mb is a big file but not terribly unreasonable once you get into a lot of detail. Any special tricks on saving space?

Brothers, and Sisters,

Tipping a few, having a sandwich, and getting set to "push it" with some of the local curves.

What about kicking it? Yeah, it's on.

You feeling me?

Yeah, it's on, and so am I.

So, Jack bird showed this love copter to the big Sam, and she's all "no way, I want that, tell this Silver Monster Singer he's got all the mad skills... I'd do him!"

"Do me," was my reaction to that, but she's an excitable girl, and wondered what was what with all that (not always into my scribbling, but this looks "like the stuff my brother would build").

"What was what," meaning, what does one do with such a fine model... copter?

Love it, baby, that's what I told her -- a bit heavy for gaming, or VFX, I'm suspecting, but detail is a marvel, and building boats in a digital bottle is always a "bring it" kind of a deal.

There was this one dude, quite a mad carver of all manner of wood, that full on carved this crazy Jack bird Lincoln funeral train action, and it's mad cool.

Dudes named "Mooney" I think, and yeah, Samantha partied with the blade slinger.

Check it here:

http://www.warthers.com/carving.htm

Sam will some times great me with, "You glad to see me, DH?"

I always tell her "sure."

She's a fun girl.

hi guys, thanx for the support.
tips and tricks, maybe youll all know about this already, i mirrored the one side, so its half of an component grouped together.
the parts that will not be mirrored and must be unique will be in that group. components save space. I think sketchup reads it as one boject..so having 20 of the same thing in groups will tkae up more space than having 20 of one component
Durant Hapke, nice model train. Its mindblowing to see all that build out of woood, really amazing

I did not recognise the projections or surface operations toolbars - which plugins create those?

I don't have the projections plugin so I don't know which that one is, but the surface operations toolbar is tools on surface by Fredo6 available here: viewtopic.php?f=180&t=11212&start=0

Amazing work Silver Shadow!!! truly inspiring. SU really shines in the hands of the dedicated man, and congrats to all those who write those great ruby scripts you use - these functions really should have been developed inside SU by the SU development team, but hey... they did think up ruby.

can you show the raw maxwell output - that will be very interesting to see.

Cheers, and keep this eye candy thing going.

Here you go:
projection_extension.zip

Just unzip in your plugins folder.


There is a newer version of that as well - "more user-friendly than previous version": http://www.crai.archi.fr/RubyLibraryDep ... ion_v6.zip

Nice stuff! Thanks for posting the images showing each step in building the fuselage. Very informative. I probably would have extruded the fuselage lengthwise rather than from the profile. Can you share your thinking on that?

These are just mind blowing.
The modelling is exceptional and that level of detail takes a special talent.

Those last three renders and PS compositions are just sublime!

Great work Jacques :thumb:

Jacques,

Absolutely superb work. :thumb: :thumb: The guys in my office are Revit converts and look down their noses at Sketchup as a bit of a play thing. When I called them all over to my computer to take a look at your great work, there was stunned silence and and a collective shuffle back to their seat with their collective tails between their legs :berserk: :berserk: :berserk:

I love the renders as well, fantastic.

i have extruded the fuselage from the side and bottom, and there they intersected i sort of got the idea of shape. (btw, its my first attempt to build something else than buildings lol )

I have updated the first page includin the raw maxwell renders as requested.

thanx for the support guys ;)

Stunning Silvershadow! The images highlight not only your skill but your love of crafting such a detailed model. You are justifiable in your pride of accomplishment. A big thanks for posting all the progress series. They really do inspire by showing that when you craft such a complex model you break it down into many, more manageable, smaller projects.

For EyeCandy3: I'd suggest this landmark.

Regards, Ross
