This is my first try with Blender… I am not new in 3D but new in Blender. Its 2.5 version with its new ui made me focus on it. Blender was long before its mentioned version a very powerful app, no doubt, but its ui prevented me from using it… now things has changed altogetherly, however. : - )
The modelling has been made totally in Wings 3D, my favourite modelling app, and all the staging, material applying, texturing etc has been made in Blender.
I do call it ‘retro’ because as a shape it has something from the old good British ‘Thunderbirds’, ‘Fireball XL5’ and ‘Stingray’ approach… the so much loved sf comicbooks of my childhood years.
Comments and crits are welcome, of course…
