I wonder if the it would look better with just the blurred blade rather than the whole discs. OF course that means cutting up the discs :shock: and the blades might be a bit floppy on their own :shock: :shock:


I'm still here, delayed by a significant archery event - that I'll tell you about in the next few weeks.
That would come out something like this:

Well I've passed my Archery assessment - and am now a qualified Level 1 Coach.

A bit more work on my boxart project.
Skidmarks along the ice, and a tent.
Fixed the Lansen canopy open, and installed seatbelts.

This is with the Vertol

I'm toying with the idea of using the kit rotor-hubs - with blurred blades made from a Pepsi bottle.

Congrats on the Coaching quals, Robin Hood look out :)

I like the segmented blurs on on Ol' 66, I think the big discs cover too much area.

Cheers
Jim

The rotor disks are just tooo reflective - and will be worse at Telford,
so I've built the kit rotors. Intention is to fit wedges of blurred clear to double (or a bit more) of the kit rotors as you seem them in this image.

I found it hard getting the perspective right in this rushed pic, and might need to adjust the helicopter height.

Yeah I agree the disks are just far to distracting. Next time we'll motorize them :grin:

I'll check this again tomorrow when the copydex has dried.

Those latest ones are the best looking yet! You'd probably be even closer to the actual look by just using the clear wedges as the blade in motion never really looks solid...

That had occurred to me, but I don't want to compromise the rotors.
This is what it looks like today.

Might be worth me putting some more paint on the upper surfaces, next time I'm airbrushing.

More very dilute black paint to enhance the blur, more matt Klear to reduce the reflection:

And this is as the survivors will see her:

Yep, I think you've got it. A vast improvement on the full disks that were too distracting. Well done for persevering and finding a great solution.

That's excellent! It's the kind of inspiration I need for my SH-3D - I've got a of bit of catching up to do...

OK here's the scene. I'll lower the helicopter when I get my tube-cutter back.
Image
Currently the Vertol is a bit high to get the perspective of the scene right.

Here's the campsight. That chap at the back is a bit cold - he forgot his dayglo coat!
Image
Skidmarks behind the 'plane, result of a 2 mile white knuckle slide across the frozen lake.

And here's the crash - with a light dusting of snow.
Slushy footprints around the cockpit where all the survival gear was pulled out.
They would have lost most of that had they ejected
Image

And the rescue heros arrive.
Image

And finally a reminder of the boxart scene.

The snowy base looks brilliant and very convincing, well done!
