Texturing is going ahead. Here is a preview of the main saucer colour map and the secondary hull with UVs. To lay out the saucer’s UVs I used the tutorial by Tobias Richter, that he[…]
Finally I finished the modeling and nearly all UVs. Right now I’m painting the textures and the main texture of the saucer is already done. The whole model has about 780,000 polygons.
Work on the nacelle has been started.
I did not had any time at the turn of the year and in january. But finally I got some major things done. I made a little breakdown to show the elements of the deflector:[…]
