are you using any reference? because, imo, it has too much wings..
keep it up
16-07-2004, 01:34 AM
well the wings still need working on. there just a quick base. well i'v used a side picture of thunderbird1 for the body shape but i can't get any from top down

Either I'm very dumb at physics or this just wouldn't fly due to those bloky things. Doesn't look very aerodynamic... :dunno:
Acctualy it's very hard to crit, since (as I've found out after a search on google) the thunderbird missile has many variations and models. It's hard to find reference of the one you're making.
Maybe you could show us the blueprint? Or maybe you know the exact name of it?
Maybe this is the one?: http://members.tripod.com/krh30/36reg/fbf90080.jpg

Well, that clears things a bit. :)
Seems you're following the concept pretty well. I'd even say the modeling is more or less done. Post some updates on texturing. ;)

I love thunderbirds! I cannot wait til the movie comes out, but I hope it isn't too childish.
btw nice model, but the main wings need a little work and the 'fins' seem a bit blocky. Thanks for showing and good luck

Besides the real Airforce Thunder Birds,
Are they supposed to be like Power Rangers or something.
I did see Bill Paxton on the trailor on a tv spot.
Other than that, Ive never heard of the show nor seen it.
But I reconized what you were modeling when you said Thunder birds. Cause of the trailor. I guess that means your model must be pretty good. LOL!
Becuase I reconized it right off the bat.
Keep up the good work.
I'll have to see what these thunder bird people are about :D

Actually the show was quite inconsistent and had many continuity errors: sometimes there was a windscreen (on the side of the rocket) and sometimes there just wasn't. In any case I don't know how Scott saw out the front... magic anyone?

i found out there rockets have blast sheilds that close and open
