Silver Shadow:
You know, I thought your village on the water was face melting.
The fact that you took the effort to document the many steps in the development of the blackhawk is devastating, or humbling--or epiphanic--if that's a word.
Any further comment would be gibberish.

I've always thought SU as a good tool to draw houses, fornitures, trading centres, etc. I mean apart from the personal abilities, I think you'are really talented...I thought SU didn't allow certain kind of projects, like a professional Cad does...but I was absolutely wrong. If I've thought that about SU is not because I'm a professional designer hard to please, with preconceived ideas, but just because I've never seen such a good project of this type made with SU.
What you did is amazing :o

Wow silver_shadow, I must say that this made me think differently about sketchup now. This is quite amazing. I'm an architect and I'm also using sketchup but just for quick massing studies and then finalize the whole modeling and rendering in 3ds Max. I never knew that sketchup can also do these kind of things. I wonder what the specs of the computer you are using, you may be using a really powerful computer because this model looks heavy on computer resources especially doing it in sketchup. I hope I can be as skillful in sketchup as you are. Thanks for the post, it's really amazing.

hi there.
thanks, to be honest, i modelled these things in a dual core 3.4 ghz machine with 2 gig ram. No fancy equipment. Just lots of patience. Be sure to look into the other candy models if you havent seen them yet. I now got a powerful i7 machine, and hope to do some great things with this in the future. :D

Sup silver_shadow, great detail work on BH, I really enjoy looking at the inside of BH, seat and belts are just wicked and all other detail work is just phenomenal :D
Your system is very similar to mine, do you mind sharing your V-ray set up for "clay" renders?

Jacques, now that you have a real machine, what can we expect for 'Eye candy 4'?

I really look forward to these, they are most humbling.

firstly i build ribs, as one normally do in plane construction, rounded the edges. Then i used a plugin called skin. Choose 2 faces and joined them. Once completed you get a basic frame wich one can work with, and then you just tweak it as you go on.

Thanks, that's not how i make planes so it took me ages, and then i had forgotten to round all the rib's corner's, and i made a LOT to many ribs. Thanks, and now that I know the amount of time it takes just to make those silly ribs, I admire your work more!

Beautiful work.

BTW, there's a "[" missing in your image link at the end where it should be [/img], the cockpit clay render isn't showing up. This one:

Thanks, i fixed the link .Yea my whole image storage folder crashed and had to move them to another account and re post all my images, to in places i ended up posting less, esp the candy 3 model because there are 250 renders of that and things like this might happen. Thanks for pointing this, really apreciate it. :)
