    I believe I saw something like on Gundan Seed, was my very first thought when I saw Sleipneir for the first time in the game.

    hmm, when I first got a Sleipnier I thought the tail thrusters should rotate.
    And that the entire tail-fin section should pull in next to ship's body for compact storage.

    I was pleasantly surprised when I first got mine, and saw that the main thristers and legs could move. I was under the impression that the thrusters would light up and that would be it. I think that the tail fins should move too, especially when the aircraft is turning.

    Done with the tail section! All that's left is the cockpit and some detailing on the body.

    Gosh, detailing is a real pain. Imagine my surprise when I turned the graphics up to high and saw new details that were never there before pop up everywhere. Guess I've gotta take it in my stride.

    I had been putting this project off for quite some time due to a bunch of real life commitments and projects coming at me all at once, but now that they're out of the way, I'm determined to finish this up! :punch:

    Finished the handle grip thingys at the sides of the cockpit and detailing at the back. All that's left is the cockpit now.

    Aaaaaannnnddd... it's done! I guess I should have just finished it back then.

    Did a basic render just for satisfaction. Boy it does look pretty.

    Next step would be texturing it and doing a proper render, then preparing the model for a 3D print (soon, hopefully!).

    Very well done!
    Maybe - just maybe - make a model for the new Ark Dropship. Like the one which was pesented to us. I don´t like the model from the Ark team. Its not sleak - no real aerodyamic... it could be way nicer!! I think you could do that!

    Oh yes, I've had that on the bucket list too. I'll see if I can work on that once I'm all done with this. ;)

    Put on some colours to match it a little closer to the one in-game. No decals or weathering, unfortunately.

    Also, one with a background render, just for the fun of it. :)

    Those are very impressive renders and 3D work mate, very well done.

    It's been almost 2 years, but I've finally gotten some actual use from the 3D model! The original plan was to 3D model the Sleipnir, then use the model to print out a miniature using a 3D printer. Unfortunately back then, my skill with printers still wasn't quite up to scratch, and neither was the technology without spending a fortune on hardware. The results were fairly dismal, so I left it as it was for a while.

    Now that I've gotten experienced enough, and it's possible to have a printer without breaking the bank, I took the opportunity to revisit this little project. Here's how it went:

    Raw 3D prints with printing supports still on. Will be clipping them off later and doing some massive cleaup.

    Supports have been removed. Still got quite a lot of clean-up work to do.
