My intent with this project was to model the Albatros, inside and
out, down to bolt level detail.
Currently I am about 90% done. I still need to finish the internal
structures in the tail, rudder and stab, and there's a long list of
details which I skipped, but I have enough now to be able to render
most of what I want.
The software I'm using is Microstation, which is a CAD application.
I'm a technical Illustrator and I've used this software for about
15yrs now - the main reason I started this project is because in all
that time I never got a chance to push the software and see what it's
capable of. I must admit - It ha been very labor intensive task. But I
decided at the beginning that I would spare no effort on this model -
and I am pleased with the results so far.
I'm now generating a variety of color schemes so that I can try
rendering some formation flying/dogfight scenes.
I started this project about a year ago in conjunction with the Great
Albatros Cookup sponsored by the WWI modeling list.
If you are interested the Cookup site has a many more of these
renderings, as well as photos of "physical" models done by
other members of the list. Cookup site - http://members.nbci.com/OTprojects/index.html
