This "virtual scratchbuilt" model is based on a drawing I saw in a Gatefold book with the following designation:

Junkers Ju 87B-2 7. Staffel II Gruppe Stukageschwader 77 Eastern Front



The mesh was created in 3D Studio Max 3.1 and the textures painted in Photoshop. I spent far too much time on it (about 100-120 hrs of free time over two months) but I am quite happy with the results. I still need to improve a bit on the weathering techniques, as my flaky paint job is a bit too flaky.



I created the model for my digital portfolio and it is my first attempt at a complex military airplane model. I rendered the images with the express intent on making it look like a real 1/24 scale plastic model. 



That might sound a bit weird, but I wanted to showcase my skills not only as a computer artist, but as a modeller that can use digital tools.
