Been working on this lately— I wanted to get practice in 3ds max and the full-PBR CryEngine while going through classes. I also wanted to try out some new techniques.

The idea behind this ship is that it's a warp-incapable small fighter from CNOU that's supposed to be beefier than the Merlin and less versatile than the Mustang. Color scheme is not final, current scheme from the concept and WIP model is mostly just to get material breakup in. Thruster placement is also not final— generally it's very WIP and everything is subject to change except maybe the general shape and idea.

Concept:

WIP model, in-engine (3-6 weeks in? Don't remember and I've been doing other things as well):

That's all for now, I hope you enjoy! As always, comments and critique are welcome, I'm still learning. I'll be working on this a lot the upcoming weeks so I'll try to keep this thread updated regularly.

P.S.: The floating head, humvee, and helicopter are some cryengine stock assets— I stuck them in there to make sure the lighting wasn't over/underexposed so I could test my materials, which are those giant floating cubes in the second screenshot at the rear.

P.S.S.: If you've been wondering why the "Making of TNGS Ships" thread hasn't been updated in a while, this is the reason :P

P.S.S.S.: Please give name suggestions!
