Nice!!

Thanks!  So much trial and error (and, of that, more error than trial... Ha!)  Good learning tool though re: creating all the objects which, together, make that ship miniature.  I look at it now and I know there are so many things I would do differently, more efficiently, regarding modeling it.
Having done a lot of 3D CAD in the course of my career, I can understand that.  Learning how to model efficiently is always a learning experience.  The real fun comes when you try and work with someone else's model that is anything but.

Been there, done that-but with my own meshes.  Ha!  I found out that sometimes objects that look just great in Max don't always play nicely once imported into Vue Studio.  Smoothing issues and angles, things of that nature.  Sometimes I might have to go back into the model and clean things up a bit, but not a great deal.  It's all a learning experience and fun, so I don't mind terribly.

I could have sworn I posted this, but I probably got in a hurry and forgot to hit the all-important "post" button while having what my son refers to as a "senior moment"  ;D



No senior moment...just a timeslip issue... ;)
All hail the God of Frustration!!!

Bummer, hate when that happens... 



Here's one I'm working on for a friend who's one of the many gifted volunteers at the National Museum of Nuclear Science and History in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  This year they completed work restoring an F-105D-20-RE and painted it in silver, with the correct markings per its S/N (61-0107).  Planning on completing a profile for him as a gift.  Still working on placing all the markings on the fuselage at this point.  I've written to the USAF Museum and the 49th Wing, at Holloman AFB, to obtain further information regarding this plane that I can use while I'm considering layout options for the profile.

Cheers!
