Ah, yeah, no wonder I couldn't find it. It wasn't your thread, hehe.

Re: A parade of spaceships...

Okay, I admit I'm getting stumped with this. It's just not coming together in a way I like. I feel almost like my brain is mud trying to figure this out.

Re: A parade of spaceships...

Is the key problem error is just after the cockpit where the wings tie in?

Re: A parade of spaceships...

Meshing the wings smoothly into the body is a challenge, but since my previous post I have an idea that I want to try that might work. It could likely prove to be tedious, but it should get the job done.

Re: A parade of spaceships...

Here I'm beginning to get the wings to merge with the fuselage. The real challenge is the wings being a complex shape: they have something of an aircraft wing cross section to them but they also curve in two different directions as well as narrowing as they go outward from the fuselage to the outer edges. Mt plan is to make cross-sections as the wing narrows out and the skin those. The really tricky part I see is the leading edge of the wings flowing into the fuselage.

Yup, for people, like Timo, who are not familiar with the show, Space Ghost would be depicted leaving the Phantom Cruiser (by way of the canopy simply lifting) and then flying to whatever destination Superman style...because he needs to get there faster than the Cruiser can carry him! Keep in mind he does this seemingly in "deep space" without any visible means of propulsive or life support gear.

Obviously, Space Ghost exists in a quantum reality where the physical laws of nature function VERY different from ours!

But the Phantom Cruiser is STILL a very sweet ride!

Sincerely,

Bill
Well he was a superhero. mUst have been powerful armbands.

Why risk getting your ride blown up.

There are lots of street toughs who don't mind broken knuckles--but woe to anyone who marks up their cherry ride.

Okay, I'm not done yet, but here is a little f/x fun.



Note that the one thing definitely missing is the exhaust flame.

For those who have never seen this film there is one shot in it that I think is awesome. It's a shot of the ship going upwards into the distance and it's very quick where all you see is essentially the exhaust flame as the ship rises like a bat outta hell. Pretty damn cool for a silent film.
This is nice, love the look of it.
