Right, sinced I forgot to bring back my lovely Aya file from the office, I’ve decided to re-create the R-Gray 1 starfighter from the game RayStorm by Taito.
Along the way, the model is fine (just done the thermonuclear-attached afterburner engine nacelles) but… There’s a problem, major problem. I’ve found out that there are <b>TWO</b> versions of R-Gray 1, the in-game and the cutscene/model versions. Both of them are “slightly” different.
Now here’s a good top down picture (taken from http://axts10.web.infoseek.co.jp/kusunoki/rgray1/ page, good reference, this) as reference. All nice and clear, right?
Well, here’s my version so far…
And yes, I’m using Google Sketch-Up. Easy to use, have the things that I need and quite easy on the PC requirements. Started doing the central fuselage of the fighter now and it 12:03 am now, I better stop and continue after teaching my class tomorrow.
