    Azhanti High Lightning

    My model of the Azhanti High Lightning from Traveller so far. The source used was the game's box lid. I still need to detail the refuel bays, jump drives, and model some Ramparts for this scene.

    Very nice model so far does it already have some bump mapping on it ? Looks like it

    It has procedural diffuse and highlight maps so far. I'm using the diffuse map as a bump also in modo.

    Now this is a great New Years surprise This is only the second Azhanti High Lightning I've ever seen done. Love it!

    Thanks. I am rather surprised that there are not more models made of this ship.

    Probably one of the few traveller ships that don't look awful. Nice model.

    Thank Mongoose Publishing for getting me interested in Traveller again. Now I'm as hyped about the game as I was back in '81. Here is my early modeling start on the Ramparts for the scene.

    Closer to the box pic than mine!

    Be nice to see your fiished Rampart - I'm not happy with mine.

    Andrew,

    I'm finding the Rampart much more difficult to model than the AHL which was just block modeling. I tried using SubD at first, but decided on using the NURBS boolean cutting with chamfering method because of the needed curves and tight angles.

    Oooh, nice job on the 'Lightning, I've got to admit she's been on my must do list for quite some time.
