That's great, Yaniv!
You really surprise me how fast you learn this program!
You must be really excited about it, I know I would be!
Looking real good!
Very surprised. You've learnt fast in Rhino. C-47 is going well.
Yaniv, about the nose cone, I can only draw a picture for now, maybe someone else could help.
nezard thanks but its not tell me to mach i not that good on graphix stuff
any way (only if u have time) u can show me some more deteling stuff?
Sorry I don't have Rhino right now. So basically you make planes along your central line of the nose cone, rotated at 45 degrees (or any angle you like, 30, 15, whatever) to each other. You then use "intersect" to find the intersect between the planes and the nose cone. After that you'll get a number of intersection curves around your nose cone. You can then loft between two adjacent intersection curves to get a developable surface. In my case you'll need to do that 8 times, then develop each one, and arrange them so they join together as you see in the other models.
your C-47 is looking great... would be nice to have one to put in all our stuff as we demob our camp and move on to Helmand province, then it becomes a Spooky gunship hehehe. just a thought here, i have the FG version and could never get it right... maybe you may want to go into another direction with regards to the nose, something similar to PModel, NOBI way of doing the nose. just a small suggestion my friend, i hope you don't take it the wrong way, as you are the designer not me. I really hope you pull this one off as there was a C-47 project that was discussed here extensively almost 3 years ago but never got beyond the discussion thread. i hope you'll be the man to make this bird take off.
hi huey well
i hoppe also this bird take off from my computer to any desctop in the warld
i dont know how pmodels make thare nose u have ane pic to show me?
the old pull about c47 never become like my model now?or it whas only talk?
Tim (aka Wunwinglow) showed this trick awhile ago and I don't know exactly where it is but you can make a nose cone using either the petal method or the method you're using for the rest of the fuselage. Just use the sweep 1 or 2 rail command to create the nose cone and then enter the SPLIT command select your surface then type in I for isocurve and choose the direction to split your surface up in the manner you want to unroll it. Then duplicate the border of the individual surfaces you just made (they will still be complex curves even after splitting) explode those borders and use the sides to loft the sections then unroll and piece it together. If this doesn't make sense sometime this weekend I can do up a little tutorial for you or maybe Tim can dig out his explanation I think it might be in the "Using Rhinoceros" thread.
@Chris that might be a good thread to put in the reserves if the server changes haven't wiped out all the pics in it.
new progres for tonight
i make the nose and the cocpit surface
i use the first green model node to this 1 i think its looks realy nice
Yaniv, have you any idea what scale you are going to build this in.
i love the scale of 1/33 so that what its going to be
if some one like it in ather scale i will make it
smole up date for tonight
i cut the first cocpit window
i not found the way yet how to cut the rest
Looks like I'm having some influence at least with the red surfaces!
Yaniv............... I've got enough paper set aside for the 1/33 scale............... you put it out I'll build it........................:grin: :grin:
will and jhon good morning
will yes i steal from u the ida for red surface because its looks like this mach more interesting
jhon can i count on the 3 free test copy?
what u say about my DOOR ?
new update for now
the full model with the front door
