Robur The Conqueror's Albatross

New additions to the exterior

On

I improved (I hope..) the design by rounding the vertical propeller pods and adding radiator coils on the side panels. I think this way the level of detailing is now more even throughout and it adds to the steam-punk look... I also changed the rudder's main color to black, to make it more accurate to Robur's yellow-sun-on-black emblem.

Edit:

New render from the front.


First try at render - new rudder design

On

After much frustration and many computer crashes, I managed to generate a low-res render of the model. Also, I noticed I had not aligned the hinges on the rudder on the original model. The re-design is slightly less streamlined but now it does rotate.
