    Wow! You're a great modeler. In my opinion, animating is WAAAAAY easier than modeling. I think you might find it kind of easy, given the patience you have with modeling.

    Thanks guys. I'm still learning blender. I didn't really find the whole modeling process that hard once I figured out the interface and some of the terms. The noob to pro guide at wikibooks really helps out a lot. I didn't make it past putting the hat on the stick man though. I'd say that there is a great deal more that I don't know compared to what I do know.

    OK, I finally got it finished. It's not as detailed as I would like it to be, but most of that stuff is probably not going to show up at civ scale anyway. The only thing I think I could have done better is the machineguns up top and the sponson around the turret. I haven't put any extra equipment on it yet. I think I will wait until I figure out the animation part of the whole thing first. What do you think?

    By the way, did anyone catch the last episode of SG-1 last night?

    Your work looks really, really good. :beer:

    And the season-ending SG-1 was a hoot, if only for the romantic "outcome".

    Best,

    I know that I said I wanted to finish this one my self, but I'm moving soon and I won't be able to do it for a long while. I want to hand this off to someone else and let this beast come to life. If there are any takers just let me know.

    This is my third model. I'm not going to say what it is supposed to be yet. I want to see what everyone thinks it is first.

    The pic of the wings forward was taken before I added the engine and slimmed the fuselage.

    Close, but no :cowboy: . Look closer, there are a few subtle differences that give it away.

    AH then it must be the Tu-160, The Russian copy of the B1B. It didn't even occur to me that it would be the Tu-160. I just saw the shape and assumed it was the B1B,

    You got it. I remember Wyrmshadow blasting some guy complaining about there not being a Tu-160 in his post war Soviet Airforce thread. He said that a Tu-160 model didn't exist. When I got done with my K-1 model, I started working on this. It didn't turn out as good as I had intended, but I still think that it looks nice for my first airplane. Maybe Wyrmshadow can do something with this. The only thing I didn't put in was the insides, landing gear, and the bombay doors. May do that later.

    just e-mailed you the file. It's the Blender file. I added the bombay doors. Decided not to put the landing gear, since it probably won't be visible in game. I didn't put glass in the cockpit windows due me not knowing how to yet. Thanks for taking this one. The K1's up for grabs if you want it.

    What if I import the parts to Truespace, and then send you the files that way?

    Yes thats fine. I'll probaly modify it somewhat within Cinema4 as well.. like adding glass. Although I don't know why you made those tall thingies over the engines.

    I just sent them. If you're talking about the fins at the base of the wings, they fold down when the wings move forward and they move up when the wings are swept back. I guess it's some kind of stabilization thing. They are probably a little too big though.
