July 22nd

I'm using Psubs for this one. I think this is the way to go with edge and vertex weighing for controlling the subtle surface changes. Landing gear salvaged from an older X-47B study.

There's some definite fine tuning left to do on how the body blends into the wings before I start making cuts and booleans into the shape for details. Meshfusion perhaps?

Mesh Fusion doodles

 Mesh fusion is here!!
An aircraft actuator I have for reference on my desk, as well as a Speedbirds (Stephane Janin) inspired seaplane. The live booleans and seam control are nice! Pretty buggy still, but really fun and satisfying.

Car bits

referenced from Timeless Racer, Daniel Simon's new book, and some cool car wheels (lambo and peugeot i think)

Stealth Drone - x-47B study

I'm having a hard time with handling the shapes - the super simple angles vs. The complex compound, subtly curved surfaces are tricky.
I'm taking an in-depth go at this one to get a good feeling for how to translate the stealthy forms into poly modeling.

Smart Bomb, take 2

ruined my original file, so I started over and hit it harder
