So I finally took the plunge and I am designing my own model. I'm using Metasequoia for the 3D work and I'll use Pepakura for some of the layout, but I'm going to use normal formers and attachment pieces and I'll publish it in .pdf format. But what model? Well, I saw Orbital's Minotaur rocket and I liked the simple design with the contrasting colors so I decided to do that. It's going well. The basic shape is done, and I'm working on the initial textures. I still need to add details like the cable runners and other odds and ends, but I'm very happy with my initial work. I'm doing the textures in Paint Shop Pro 8, since that's all I have. It's pretty good, and for what I'm using it for it's more than enough. Anyway, here's a preview of it. I hope you like it. NOTE: The finished model is available on page 2.
