Like a Glove


Installed the refurbed engines. They just barely fit.

Rendered in Vue 9.5 Infinite.

This is a draft design of the engines for my Free Trader model.

Modeled in Amapi 7.51 Pro.
Textured in 3D-Coat 4.8.10.

The 3D Hook Question

I was asked another "hook" question again, in regards to 3D modeling.

The trick is to not use n-gons (where n > 4) in your model. The best practice still is to use 4-sided polygons only.


A Re-Textured Traveller Free Trader Model


Re-textured my Free Trader model, and gave it some scraped-up marks using 3D-Coat 4.8.10, I think. This was rendered in Vue 9.5 Infinite, with some lens glare enabled.

Water is usually hit or miss with Vue. But it looks good enough in this render, if you don't look too close at it.

Some Azun


My Free Trader Hexagon model showed up in this Vue Infinite render. So this image will probably appear in the CG Spaceships Community on Google+.
