this is my attempt to model a Robinson R22 helicopter.
Very cool! Especially like the last image.
Incredible detail on the back! Is it likewise at the front, so i would love to see more details too.
Did you use normal maps for the rivets?
Love it looks great.
Great work on the tail-rotor man. Safety wire on the sight glass is a nice touch. Everything’s there. Nice job.
Would be a fun model to rig (pitch change mechanism).
@ centauri : I used a bump map for most of the rivets (maybe 10 are “real”). I started to model them but it was to much poly consuming for not a real better result excepted in big close-up
@ fluxcaoacitance : I rigged it but in the easy way : the main rotor just controls the tail rotor but only blades and pieces that rotate around axe X follow.
Great job! Judging by the replies seems like not a lot of people watched the images at full resolution
Incredible details…and the shading is looking sweet ! Definitly worth more replies.
Hmm, looks like you succeeded. Nice work.
I’d even say this should be the next featured row image (or at least I hope :)). Incredible detail and great materials!
Thanks all. I’m working on an animation which will include the helicopter :).
