Just a quick update today. I've been working on the colours a bit since the last update as well as a few smaller details here and there. I've changed the plates where the red line is to be a bit smoother and I've also added a bit of colour to certain places as well.
As I haven't posted pictures of the actual model for a while I thought I'd do just that and show you what it's looking like now. I've built a possible design for the tail turrets canopy but I'm not 100% sure on how it looks at the moment but it's a start at least.
And a picture of the overall progress I've made with it.
I've been working on the engine design a bit more over the past few days and something I noticed was that the design I made before had 8 cylinders however the actual radial engine in the B-25 is a 14 cylinder twin row radial engine so there should actually be 7 cylinders at the front. I had to think about it for a while but I've come up with a possible design for 7 cylinders. I'm thinking this is going to be more or less the final design for the engines as I've got the look somewhere around where I want it and it lets the axle spin freely. What do you all think?
I've done a bit more work on my Nebulon B Frigate over the past week and what I've been focusing on this time is the colours. I've done a test render in pov-ray to see what the colours are going to look like when I do the final renders as the colours are a bit different in LDD to LDView/Pov-ray as you can see in these two pictures. What do you think?
