VF-0S

Recommended Posts

Had a lighting strike that took out my server and electrical equipment late December 2015 - after the restore , I found an old file where I started a VF-0 so I have restarted this week with front body and Gunpod

Looking good so far.

I have a little more uncolored line art (in better scans and resolution) featured on my website post-update. Might be a little more helpful than before. Make sure to check it out if you need the reference.

I have been constructing the cutting lines , so each panel can then be cut from the solid model - I get asked about NURBS modeling a lot , so here is some detail of how the lines look and then how it is used.

Old school ;)

Will post the finished "leg" that is filleted next ....

Damn I would hate to have to remove a few of those panels along the front intake in real life. It looks like you would have to take off that entire upper fuselage cover to get to the upper screws. Excellent work though I like the screw details you included.

Thx 3D-Brainx , The model should ,but it is a CAD model so when you converted it to poly's it becomes a very big file :)

Small bit of progress again ....
