Strangest F-106 Intercept Ever: (AKA. Sneak Peak at upcoming release)

Recommended Posts

Well, I originally started on an aircraft project and promptly realized how time consuming and difficult that can become. So I then changed gears and made this completely fictitous, but quite fun project. These F-106 pilots sure got a surprise.... :-)

I will try to cobble together a flight model for it, but if not I will release the .lod and a skin template for somebody who wants to put the finishing touches on it. I gave it a diameter of 220ft, so it is a pretty large air to air target. Thanks again to the people who helped me work out using 3D Studio.

 

Edit: This will also be perfect for the laser beam "cannon" that was recently shown on the forum.

What's so odd about that intercept??? Happened all the time!!! :wink:

 

Are you sure he's not just 'escorting' that Bouncer back to Area 51??? :rofl: (yes, I've have/read all the A.51 books)

I am the only person you're likely to meet that has ever really been to Area 51. It is not what you think and it is not even close to what oher people think it is. Sorry to pop the bubble, but no spacecraft.

Of course, that exactly what THEY want us to believe. Hey, I've watched the X-Files. I know how these things work. Next you're going to try to convice me there is no Santa Claus. BS. I've seen him in a MOVIE.

 

Gotta go scratch my implant........

Not sure, I've got 29 days left on my trial of 3D Studio 9. I am at a standstill right now though, the UV Mapping process is very tedious for me and I don't know that much about the materials and textures (like the reason for my windows vanishing?)

 

If somebody wants to help, they are more than welcome.

 

I really need a flight model and a skin done for it. Right now I am just borrowing bits and pieces from other planes' FMs for my own testing, and I don't think I can really post that because of all the borrowed material.

It's an invasion!

 

 

Well, due to real life taking precedence with my time and my general inexperience at this, I thought it best to give the modding community the files that I started on. The 3d studio max 9 file and the test .lod that I was using for screenshots are now available for somebody to continue work on: http://forum.combatace.com/index.php?autom...p;showfile=5700 :biggrin: I would really like to see someone finish this, thanks!

 

As long as the final project can hover when thrust vectoring and land vertically on the belly plate, go at least as fast as the Mig-31 Firefox, still turn like a fighter at slower speeds, have a laser cannon, dark tinted windows, and a shiny silver paint job it is okay by me. :biggrin::good::ok: lol, that was what I had in mind for it - add what you want to the model, but please just keep the basic external appearance the same. Have fun!!
