SMC #22 "Up, Up & Away" - Aircraft


3D Plane render made by yours truely a few years ago.

The Challenge Rules

1). Each challenge we'll post a subject for you to model along with a time limit on how long you should spend on it. Spend no longer than the allocated time then post a render of your model. No cheating, we are relying on your honesty here and the idea of speed modeling is to simulate a "real world" environment. If you are working on a project and asked to show a concept model you'll need to be able to get somewhere near the target in the allocated time. Your submission should be a model created especially for this challenge and not one you have stored on your hard drive. How you interpret the brief is up to you as long as the final model conforms to what we have asked for. Any images of models that do not match the brief can be removed and the poster disqualified.

2). You may enter as many times as you like as long as each model is completely new and uses no components from other entries. Entries using models which are not original will be removed and the poster disqualified.

3). Your entry may contain as many views of your model as you like and must include a clear and easy to see wireframe of the mesh before any smoothing/subdivision has been applied. Wire renders/ Cell Shaded or Screengrab wireframes are acceptable. Any wireframes we cannot see correctly will be disqualified. The key is for us to be able to see the wireframes clearly to ascertain how you modelled the subject matter.

4). You MUST include the following details with each submission:

A). Software used
B). Time spent creating the model.
C). A Clay Render of your models.

Any further information is voluntary but posts not containing the required information can be removed and the poster disqualified.

5). Post TWO images per entry which must be no larger than 1280x1024 pixels in either landscape or portrait format with a file size of no more than 195k.
1 image for your wireframes and 1 for your clay combined with a optional beauty render.
These images must be uploaded to our servers using the "browse" button on the forum reply page.
Do not link to external images files. Images larger than the maximum size or posts containing links to external images (other than for reference materials)
will be removed and the poster disqualified.

6). The creation of displacement maps, normal maps and any splines drawn out in an external program other than your modeling software are to be included in your modeling time.

7). Time spent on rendering or texturing or building a scene in which to display your model is not included in the allocated period to allow those with slower machines to participate on an even playing field. What we are looking for is the quality of the models you can produce "under pressure". If your model is not complete, you can still post it as long as it's recognizable.

8). Posting the same entry twice in a challenge is considered to be double posting and will result in a disqualification. When asked to fix a previous post due to DQ or any other reason, you must fix the first post, or delete it altogether and create a new one.

9). The Winner must email jo@3dtotal.com to claim their prize.

10). Only 1st place & 2nd place (i.e. the runner up) can claim a prize.

These rules apply to everybody taking part there will be NO exceptions!

Subject: Aircraft.
Deadline - 10:00PM GMT Friday 26th August 2011
Description: According to wikipedia, Aircraft are vehicles which are able to fly by gaining support from the air, or in general, the atmosphere of a planet. An aircraft counters the force of gravity by using either static lift or by using the dynamic lift of an airfoil, or in a few cases the downward thrust from jet engines, there are however many types of air vehicles most are not considered aircraft because they do not have wings and rely on rocket thrust as the primary means of lift. But for this modelling challenge I will allow anything kind of craft that can sustain time in the air, so I will include Hot Air Balloons, Gliders, Hang Gliders, Airships etc. As always the choice is yours

Modelling Time: 90 Mins.

Prizes:

1st Place - 30 worth of 3DTotal downloadable products & a gold award badge.
2nd Place - 10 worth of 3DTotal downloadable products & a silver award badge.
Honourable Mentions - Bronze Award Badges

Above All Else Have Fun & Good Luck!

My Starter

Very quick & dirty starter here, nothing special, very quickly modelled, textured and rendered as i'm not feeling too well.

AMG! I am quite short on time, which may have been apparent in my lack of participation in past rounds... but this is kind of personal. I cant let this topic slip by!

I am kind of airplane nerd. I have been working on Henschel Hs129, but its now suspended in favor of another project. Let me share part of the project

Nice entries Antor! Love the texturing. You're first plane reminds me of the plastic Revell spitfire I once glued together

Airco - de Havilland DH.2

My entry has landed

I have been craving to make this airplane for a long long time. Its been my very first model kit I had, so its sort of sentimental.

Created in 3Ds Max in 90 minutes. Only what you can see on wire and clay has been created in 90 minutes. I just could not resist later on to... enrich the model with some additional details for the beauty render. Such as a propeller or pilot .

The beauty render is the original model (untouched) with additional details.
