Looking great so far.

That reminds me that weird flag npc_helicopters have in hammer.

Make it slightly longer and the front less bulbous and you’ve gotta winner!

Done, I think.

Brilliant model, it’d be good is someone could code it to hover and alter the fans to change pitch/roll and move, though people seem to be busy these days in the lua forum.

Nice one.

Almost forgot, based off the awesome concept by Csp499

You did it fast while I wasn’t looking, looks cool but not very combine-y, is it meant to be a combine thing?

Nope.

It screams SiN Episodes at me. Looks alot like the SiN Episodes Helicopter/Gunship

When rendering your texture previews, turn on Catmull-Rom filtering, map supersampling, and turn off mipmapping for best results.

It looks badass.

Uh yeah, I’m pretty sure HLMV doesn’t have those options.

By any chance, did you use the ‘making of’ feature of The Incredibles DVD as inspiration? One of the deleted scenes has helicopters that look nigh exactly like this helicopter.
Either way, looking good.

no.

Ah. Well, did Csp499 get his inspiration from that deleted scene?

How am I supposed to know…?

My bad, thought you were doing previews from the modeler.

Awesome, and refreshing seeing something isn’t combiney. It looks like a design based on a modified predator UAV, and very realistically done. Very cool.

looks like a predator hybrid. Nice work.
