A simple F4U Corsair render
show user profile  Skyraider3D
Hi folks! Here's a little test image of my Corsair 3D model. I have many "proper" artworks planned for the next months, including the Mosquito, Zero, Corsair, Mustang, T-33A, TSR2, I-16 and Ju 88, but thusfar not had any time (which in a sense is a good thing). So I crank out a little test like this every now and then to keep the creative juices flowing.

This is what the reflection pass looks like... gotto love that metallic look to a WW2 airplane! :)

Thanks guys! Some more juices flowing :)

It's just a very basic HDRI environment, but it works quite well.

I'll try and post a wireframe of the Corsair.

Silly Skyraider, you modelled the wings all bent!

Ah! The Corsair, I have family connections to that plane as my Grandad was a famous NZ WWII Corsair pilot.

Where are them bombs though?!

The background looks a bit blurry. Especially compared with the sharp plane renders.
Shouldn't the rotor blades be spinning on the top right plane? Also the lower left one... how can that thing fly?

Cheers guys! :D

Very interesting Grant! Corsairs could indeed carry bombs, I've yet to model these. The F4U-1D had fixed hardpoints, but on the F4U-1A (illustrated) the bomb racks were detachable.

Sangre, I didn't bother with the propeller blur on the Zero as it's just a quick test render. Nobody noticed the Corsair doesn't have a pilot? ;)

Here is a painting of my Grandad flying one. He was in 16 Squadron, RNZAF. He has written three books about his time in the war and is famous in NZ for aviation.

The blurb for this image is:

"A dramatic low-level attack on a Japanese base near Rabaul is in progress by F-4U Corsairs of 16 Squadron, RNZAF. Taking the lead is Bryan Cox, as the Corsairs leave a trail of smoke and debris in their wake. Water vapor is squeezed out of the humid atmosphere as Coxs wingman banks sharply to avoid groundfire. The Kiwi Corsairs buccaneered their way through the intensly fought campaigns in the Solomons and Guadalcanal."

That's a Nicolas Trudgian painting, one of the most famous aviation painters out there.Very cool! I did a bit of a Google and it appears your grandfather has an exceptional amount of flying experience (21,000 hours I read? That's almost 2.5 years spent airborne!). You must be very proud of him!

Yes, of course, he is about as experienced as I think you can possibly be!

He flew after the war doing stunts for films and only recently stopped flying.
