For this update, I worked on the exhaust vents for the propellers.
Creating the exhaust vents
If you recall in my earlier posts, one of the leftovers from the Boolean operations I did in creating the hole on the fuselage was the bottom cover of the fuselage.
I did a Boolean subtract operation to cut the engine base from the fuselage bottom cover.
I then took the knife tool to divide the bottom cover into strips. For consistency, I didn't do any fancy Metaseq voodoo. I just made some guestimates and hoped for the best.
After cutting the strips, I rotated each by 70 degrees.
This is how it turned out.
How it looks so far
Here's how the exhaust vents look when attached to the main model
- Landing Gears
- Wheel Wells
- UV Mapping
