Soviet Mil Mi-6

The beginning of my mil Mi-6 project. Again on this one I am aiming to take it up a notch on modelled detail and textured detail from my f-111. So far basic blocking/modelling has just about been finished.

Hey !
This looking good. Modeling looks good, try to work on the interior, because at the end of your project if you want to incorporate it in a scene, you will need to put pilots and you will be angry to remodel things (starting with a little cube) again and again…

But nice start, I’m impatient to see this helicopter textured.
Nice portfolio by the way ! :slight_smile:

Impressive effort, little things add a lot

This **** just got bumpy. :smiley:

Looks good. Can’t wait to see it completely textured.

How do you make the bump maps? Hand drawn? Looks good. Any tips? Thanks.

They were all texture painted roughly by hand, and then refined in GIMP. I have actually recorded the making of the entire model at 5x speed, so at the end If I can find a way to upload it all people can watch it as a sorta tutorial thing!

And also I’m in pretty bad need of ideas for a scene. Any ideas? :slight_smile:

Hey! Great model that you are making, I like the much different details really much. I would be excited to see your making off, too.

For the scene: Maybe some kind of taking off from a Battleship on sea ?

Lots of updates! :smiley:
All textured (apart from maybe some exhaust dirt) and completely remade the bump maps!
