Futuristic Helicopter WIP

Post by Darth Yoda on Thu Jun 24, 2010 7:01 pm

It started out as a Post APOC helicopter, but like most of my creations it has turned sci-fi. Razz

Anyways, It's going to look similar to a Halo hornet. I'll have the same kind of engines/propellers, but it will be bigger and longer.

Anyways, here's a picture of the head a few days ago, I'll get some new pics of the finished head. I was also just going to make the crashed head, but that Moc failed.



Tips would be gratefully accepted. What do you guys think of the Cockpit idea?
And what color scheme should it be? I was thinking maybe dark bley and dark green like my other Sci-Fi Fighter

I like the cockpit. Dark bley with dark green highlights would be a great color, but don't overdue it. I feel there was too much dark green in your fighter that you used as an example. Wink

I'm warning you now, helicopter are extremely difficult to build. Be prepared to rebuild it if you smash it against a wall. Razz

Nice design and I would, if I were you, put some accents of colour in the head or some big frakkin' cannons.

alright you guys, here are some updates on the whole thing. Remember that some of the things are just placeholders so don't mind the colors too much.

The hole thing so far:



The updated head:


The engine design. (I need some dark bley droid arms) Shocked


It can fit four people plus the pilot... Maybe I'll make a place in the back for a gunner or something.



What do you guys think?

I like it, the dark green is very nice, but it needs to:
-Hold more men
-Have one more pilot (your choice)
-Have some big guns. Razz

I gotta say when I say the first pic I was like, "Epic!" But then I say the others and it was a let down. I know your going for a helicopter but you might want to consider something else. Again, I love the cockpit but everything else is less than 'meh', sorry. Sad

Okay, so I made a lot of progress today. I shortened the back, added a machine gunner, made the whole thing five studs shorter and made the other engine.


What makes it bad you guys?

The cockpit is good, but the body is meh. It is too narrow, bulk it up a bit. Make the droid arms match in color. Add some more hints of green for color. Hope I help.

It looks fine. But the strip that holds the wings to the body needs to be less blocky. Cockpit is good, but try working on the middle section to make it more smooth Wink .

It looks like you got the design from Avatar. Nice work though, keep it up. I really can't wait to see the finished product.

I like this, but why is it so long for those tiny engine/fans? Are you going to add more, or are you going to make giant engines? Either way, try to make it look realistic. Even if the engines were bigger than they should be, it would be fine. Good luck on this.

Good thing You've fixed the length. What also might improve this is putting the cockpit at a downward angle.

The cockpit and engines are phenominal! The only thing about the body I would change would be to make it taller. If you pull this off, it could get frontpaged! :grin:

I really love the cockpit, if it opens up too, then it would be perfect! Do you mind posting instructions? Smile

BTW, perhaps it would turn out like a Halo UH-144 Falcon. Wink Razz

If this is referring to the green, I did read your first post, but I said add some more as you go on. I also just saw the part that said some of the droid arms are placeholders.

Try covering up the joints on the fan/engine thingy.

Why?

I think it gives it a cooler look.

The awkward dip between the cockpit and cabin is bad. The shapes of everything around them is good, but the dip is just strange.

This is really nice can't wait for the finished product. More color is nice and so was the addition of the rear gunner.

It looks strange, the bricks come together at a small joint making it look like a weak spot in the design of the ship.

I think it looks like it ends abruptly, like there should be a more defined tail area. Anyone else?
