Here is a model of a SCF 28 Skymaster orbital freighter, that I found in a Sci Fi art book.
The first pic is the original line drawing from the book that I bought back in 1978.
The second is the completed hull with default materials in Hex.
Third is a test render.
It only took me a day to get this far, from scanning in the picture to UV mapping the hull.

I still need to make the interior and make the texture & bump mats.
When finished, I plan to put it up on my freebie page on sharecg.

    Nice model.
    Your old book seems to have been inspiring, some special artwork produced around that time, with real paint n pencils :) is the name of the original artist mentioned ?
    I had noticed the pilots' view port in your model is quite different from the reference image, cut in rather than shaped around a curve, maybe lost a little subtlety in the shape of the craft.

    I went with a larger view port, although I may change it later.
    Here is a quick render of one of the tex mats that will come with it.
    They wrap adverts around trucks & buses, why not freighters?

    In the spirit of April 1st.


    //Edit: better texture & lights.

    :-) Why not ! :lol: The only thing that is bugging me is the lighting doesn't match the background.

    Love that retro-future space look.
    Great job!

    Here is a WIP.
    Used it in the background of this render.
    Need to fix the UV map & make the final texture mats.

    Scrap pile ship.

    I took a few minutes to model my own. I added some chrome trim and classical colors to emulate something you might see on a 50's car.
