..... Hurricane! Yes, quite right, the upcoming 3D model release will be the famous Hawker Hurricane! Find it kind of strange nobody (except one) guessed it right, for some reason seems like it´s one of the forgotten ones, which also reflects on the 3D products created to date. Like already mentioned on my previous post, only bad quality or really expensive models are available, not a single middle quality one. This gap is going to close soon! After all, the Hawker Hurricane was one of the most produced aircraft of all time (#23 actually) and the workhorse of WW2 RAF. Ok, ok, it´s not that beautiful as the Mustangs or the Spitfires, it´s more of an ugly duckling but it´s role was more than important and I really think we miss some good Hurricane themed Aviation Art.
So, let us come to the model. It´s going to be the Mk.IIc version at least, maybe the Mk.IIb will be included too or added later as an extra, not sure at the moment. The modelling itself is in an advanced stage, most of the main features are already done, today I will work on the landing gear, the last major part that still missing. Next comes the guns and after that all the smaller details like lights and such. I will post some WIP images later this afternoon, so stay tuned! I am really happy about the modelling, managed to keep it clean and just quadrants, except maybe on the caps of some tubes, maybe I will correct even that, I´d love to have it all quadrant! I find the topology to be very clean and balanced, later I will post also wireframes of course, so you can see for yourself. Not bad at all for a first time!
Like you already know, it´s going to be payware, still haven´t decided on a price yet but I will keep it reasonable of course, this was the main idea right from the start. I have some nice concepts in mind about the pricing but I still try to concentrate on accurate modelling than marketing.
So guys, stay tuned for the WIPs later today, can´t wait to get feedback on this, it´s really so important for me!
