Hallo people,
I started to model this Chinese attack helicopter CAIC WZ-10.

My client want to have 2 finished models one lowpoly for game and one high-polly.

It takes 4 hours.
As you can see I made it with LOFT. And as result we have one big smooth surface that is ready for trim :)


I decided to record all process of creating this model.
I plane to record all stages from modelling to painting and retopology for low poly model. May be it will be interesting for somebody.

I uploaded video on you tube but do not why they are still offline.
I'll post video here a bit latter.

These are videos, I don not know why but on my machine they work after you select quality. So may be you have to select 720p to see it.

Thanx Grass)

Here is new video, and the result of the work.
As you can see all surfaces are smooth and as result of using LOFT there are minimum seams.
I tested new BLEND it works great, and LOFT to point also works good.

The shell of the chopper looks great Andrei

Just one question, did you manage to keep all your cross sections (for lofting) with equal number of points ?

Thanx)

Yes in most cases I try to keep the same amount of points. After I made object with loft, I start last stage where I make all curves with the same amount of points and align all points. To make surface perfectly smooth. In video I accidentally do not record this stage. I hope I'll make tutorial soon.

Hi Andrei

I think you might consider making the front winglet a different way. Probably as a separate piece to the fuselage with a lofted blend.

The front and rear of the winglet has lost its airfoil shape when lofted with the fuselage which makes it look quite blocky.

I hope my observation helps you when you present the model to the client.

Thanks for the response regarding number of points. I assume you just use the add point command or select a point and hit the delete key till they are all equal.

kevjon,

Yep, I'll try to fix it. I tried to make it with loft and blend but do not like result, if you will watch video you will see it. Looks like I just have to tune a bit profiles of loft to make wings more round.

Yes I just add/delete points.

Continue to keep seams as few as possible. This time used a lot of revolve.

Hay people!
Model is finished - about 16 hours of work!

Total amount of edges is 3075. So small amount of edges allows me to work during all project with: Mesh angle - 10 and Add detail to inflection - ON.

Some details:

As you can see all edges are smooth no need for fillet at all, it is result of using LOFT, Rail Revolve and Revolve. I used fillet in this model only where I connected surfaces. A lot of times I used BLEND it works REALLY great!
