Version 1 of my Saturn 5 Launch Vehicle is now available on BlendSwap
I am a life-long Aviation and Space geek who discovered Blender about 3 months ago. I want to do some renders of the Apollo program but have been stymied by the lack of quality open-source models of NASA hardware. (I’m a starving college student and cant afford to dump $100+ on turbo-squid)
As a work-around, I’ve begun making my own.
Below are my first WIP renders of the Saturn S-IVB Booster.
The main body is a simple cylinder with a normal map and some strategically placed cubes and cylinders.
I still need to add some bitz to the aft cone specifically the ribbing and pressurant tanks, but on the whole, I’m satisfied with how it’s looking thus far.
Any suggestions or feed-back would be appreciated.
