Gold space

another hour or so on the design. Additions are the hollowed out cargo bay and retractable (animated) sliding covers. this allows the Jaeger to be closer to the waterline, lowering the ship’s center of gravity and making it far more stable. Also the Jaeger is shielded form weather conditions and can be worked on without interruption should the need arise.

Another change i made was to remove four of the helipads, and to move two more of them further astern. this was initially because they collided with the doors of the Jaeger bay, but upon reflection it was unnecessary. Helicopter can not be safely and reliably stored upon helipads on a ship like this for any extended period of time, and need their own dedicated support ship for those needs. So I’ve decided that a Wasp-class amphibious assault ship would accompany this vessel, and that CH-53E Super Stallions would b used for life (they are actually rated to lift more than Chinooks).

The hull was also adapted to remove the inward bulging form the length of the ship. later i’ll find more references for how the bow and stern should look.

And finally i’ve given the ship a name:
Jaeger Mobile Launch Platform USNS Over The Rainbow (T-75)

probably about an hour’s work: a Jaeger carrier ship. In the movie Pacific Rim giant robots (known as Jaegers) are built en-en mass to defend against an army of giant monsters (known as Kaiju).
This ship might be an example of a super-heavy cargo ship that had been retrofitted to carry these giant robots. In the film they can be easily lifted by eight CH-47 Chinook helicopters. As part of a story idea of mine, the vessel would have to be capable of launching the Jaeger independently. therefore it needed eight helipads to hold the aircraft onboard. the Jaeger itself would lie face down on the deck and be carried off by means of cable harnesses.

A tilt-rotor aircraft ive been modeling over the past few weeks. this video shows the ailerons and flaps i just recently added.

after watching pacific rim I’ve started to design my own Jaeger in 3ds max. Last night, despite it not being complete, i decided to try and rig it and it turned out quite well!

Concept character/creature shapes for a Virtual pet mobile game. The player’s creature begins as a single anthropomorphised cube which can evolve into different shapes through the use of equipment and experience points, each offering different strengths and weaknesses.

3 hours. basic model of a VF-01 Valkyrie Variable Fighter from Macross.

Still unfinished. I was having difficulties with creating a perfect duplicate of the starboard wing, and there are still some obvious clipping issues with the rig itself. But watching this over and over does kinda make my night.

WIP of an alternate timeline Deep Space 9 from Star Trek. An idea where the original DS9 was destroyed and a much larger, more awesome replacement was constructed. drawing the idea and context from the way that Evangelion Anima has introduced new Evangelion designs, so this would be a very over the top amazing thing, with moving parts, a battle mode, and weapons everywhere.
about 20 mins probably.
