Okay...before I resume work on the P.1106R, I'd like to revisit using patches doing the fuselage.
My choice for this prototype is the Gamilon Exterminator Class Destroyer.
When I was a kid, one of my favorite anime show was StarBlazers (Uchuu Senkan Yamato). Some months ago, I came across this very nice model of an EDF Destroyer.
Here's how my build attempt turned out:
Very nice model.
Why not make a Gamilon counterpart for this one?
I started design by creating the general shape of the hull using patches:
Once satisfied, I let Metaseq generate the wireframe.
After a couple of optimizations, here's what I ended up with:
I'm pretty much done with the UV mapping as well. All I need to do is to finish making the textures, then Pepakura, then BUILD BUILD BUILD!
After that, I'll go back to the P.1106R!
