Good day everyone.
I've played around with SU now for a while, but these two projects represent me pushing my skills and trying to see what I'm capable of.

I rediscovered Space Pirate Harlock online, remembering it as a French language show in Ontario in the 70's. So I dove in and built up Harlock's Space Battleship Arcadia, because nothing beats a huge skull and crossbones on the bow of your ship. I've also worked on the fighter, the Space Wolf SW-190.

I'm learning a lot and hope to get help and inspiration here from the forums.

More to come, Donnewtype

Oh, Space Pirate Captain Harlock!

Honestly I had to look it up, but I thought it looked familiar.

Very cool! Excellent and faithfully detailed models!

Please post more!

Good day all.

So I've now completed the Arcadia, Captain Harlock's ship.
The bow skull was a challenge, though there are probably different ways to do it, I relied mostly on the Soap Bubble extension and the Surface Loft extension to generate the mesh.

I'm working on detailing the Bridge and Captain's State Room next.

Good day everyone.

So I dove into another project for fun, the BFG 9000 from Doom (2016 version)

I found numerous references online including two versions that were 3d printed! It's really big!
Anyway, built up the basic shapes first, then added more detail.

So first is a couple of reference images I based the design on:


3d Print BFG Ref.jpg
BFG 9000 Concept Art.jpg


So now here is the SU version:

BFG9000 Business End.jpg
BFG9000 Partial Front.jpg
BFG9000 Side.jpg


More detail to add.

Now I would also like to render it, so what is a recommendation for the easiest render extension that I could try? Not the most features, but easiest to learn. Would appreciate some help.

I don't know more easier than Simlab Composer Lite (max 1920 * 1080) and it's free! :enlight:
Have fun rendering! :fro:

Good day everyone.

So I grew up watching Starblazers (Space Battleship Yamato)on Chanel 29 Buffalo NY in 1978 and 1979 and have always loved the ships. Now I discover a Japanese artist by the name Lighthouse Zen and his/her's fantastic artwork of ships from the Yamato series. Check out the work at out at this link http://lighthousezen.seesaa.net/

Anyway one t=of the designs I found was for this cool looking Space Battleship, Sleipnir, which looks like this

So now here is my version of it with the addition of two extra main turrets
Space Battleship Sleipnir View 4.jpg

Space Battleship Sleipnir View 3.jpg

Space Battleship Sleipnir View 2.jpg


Getting the proportions right was tricky working from a perspective illustration, but I think I got the relative sizes correct, to my eye that is.

Working on the rear engine detail and then the bridge structure so there is more to come.
