    Vir Inter Astrum Reboot

    After a looong break and hardcore burnout, I'm getting back into the hobby. I've decided to go back and redo everything with, what I hope, is much better models and artwork. Here are a couple things I'm working on.




    Here is a comparison of the original model I did a few years ago and the new one. I'll be spending much less time in photoshop now.

    It's good to be back!

    nice craft, the skull and crossbones on the tail reminds me of the colour scheme on some f 14s .

    Yeah, all the markings are cold war era squadrons. here is a quickie render of the finished corsair in a vf-213 color scheme;

    The skull and crossbones, as well as the yellow/black colors are specific to the Jolly Rogers squadron, AFAIK, although variations of those patterns are also used on other squadrons.

    Different squadrons have inherited the name Jolly Rogers over the years. It was originally VF-17 in WWII, flying corsairs in the pacific. When that squadron was deactivated the identity was adopted by VF-61, and so on to VF-84 and currently it is VF-103.

    It's really nice to see you back . Hope your batteries are recharged! Are you still using SU for the models or have you upgraded?

    Hey cavebear, it's good to be back, and yes, fully recharged. Still using sketchup, I think I'm getting better with it and having a computer that's not from the 20th century helps too! Here is an update on the corsair;

    Great to hear! So what program are you using for the renders now that you are trying to do more of it outside of Photoshop?
    BTW, the corsair is HOT! It does look better than the original
