Hi Skyrates!

I didn't want to muscle in on Moros or anybody else's 3D model topics, so here's one of my own. I've made a CR-4P and a Nomad in my spare time, and I'll upload them here for you to see!

Oh! It's important to mention that these are deliberately low-poly models; in other words, they're made with the fewest polygons possible while still (hopefully!) retaining their proper shape and not skimping on any important details! I need to practice this art, so what better than to do some aircraft from Skyrates!


And one more thing - you'll probably notice that I've modified the original designs a little bit with the textures. I hope nobody is offended by this; I just wanted to add some extra cool bits to flesh out the texture sheets more. I made a grimy, worn-down texture for the Nomad, but it just wasn't as cool as the original colourful, cartoony Skyrates style. The texture sheets themselves have been kept at 1024x1024 resolution. If they were to go into a game, they'd almost certainly have to be shrunk down, but for display purposes they'll be fine at full size! :remywicked:


Also, many thanks to Moros for linking me to the original pics to work from!


Let me know what you think!

G01D-F15H and the Spectre! Now with renders!

Oh ... I like those, very very much.

.. Do you do requests ?

For low polygons, those are incredibly awesome. And... you know, the CR-4P looks less confusing with that radiator there. I was always confused by that on the normal version. Good work! :smile:

Great detailing! I agree, the radiator is a nice touch.

I am quite fond of the way you've managed to pack so much personality into your models, and the choice to use as few polygons as possible is a aesthetic that I find really appealing. Very nice work!

I like these very very much. They sorta scream "flight simulator" to me.

Mmm. Lowpoly goodness. Reminds me of Warzone 2100 in terms of detail level. :smile:

That's some very sharp texturing work. Well done!

Impressive.

With all these 3d models coming out, someone's bound to make an add on for Il2...

That is some pretty impressive low-poly work.

Huh...can you imagine Skyrates in a 3D sim? That would look fun, no?

Very nicely done. Any chance you could do a Spectre next? Or maybe a special request plane for the Museum of Aviation History?

YS Flight might be a good choice, I think you could even have the directional arcs, and it's free.

I second the request for a Spectre, though I bet it would look much better with high polygon count, as its main attractiveness is its sleek lines.

Wow, nice! And I agree, these have a distinct video game feel that I quite adore.

Thank you, guys! I will continue doing more, and I'm sure I'll do whatever you're flying quite soon! Speaking of which...

Do you do requests ?


Yes! Although I warn you, even though these are quite quick to make, I'm busy with other things most of the time, so finding spare time to work on these planes is tricky. So long as you know that each one might take weeks, go ahead and shout out a name, I'll get to it eventually.


Next: The Goldfish (As it's just a quick modification and re-colour of the CR-4P
Then: Spectre, as it was requested!
After that: ...Well, shout 'em out! I'll see what I can do. :smile:

I stress, they'll take a while, but I'll do my best.

Also I can't offer custom paint jobs just yet - but in the future I'm sure that could be a possibility!

Thanks again! It would be nice to have a whole fleet of 'em!

Honestly I'm curious what you'd do with the Levipede myself. Aka where the guns are, etc.

Fantastic job, however....I'll love whatever plane you do.
