On Patrol

Made a airplane? Zeppelin? Something in between? Here's where to put it. (Meant for any new skins/etc.etc/ and not actual new aircraft stats)

On Patrol

Here we have a squadron of Utah's finest out on a patrol of their borders, doing their part to keep their citizens free from pirates.

I can't tell you guys how annoying that canyon was to make!
Originally I had download some LiDAR files from the US Geo Survey site [that way I would get near perfect models of the landscape] but in order to do a pic like this I needed at least a dozen and it takes a lot of memory [too much memory], in the end I decided it was too much bother and so I made my own.

The Devestator paintjob was something I concocted with Jerba's help.
Next up is the "Davis Zion Mark IV"

Here is a detailed view of the paintjob for Uah's Devestators.

As usual the aircraft were modeled in 3D Studio Max, the terain was made in Bryce, screenshots were rendered for both and then the final images were combined in Photoshop for post production effects like lens effects and motion blur.
I could have done the whole thing in one package but that is a lot of effort for one static image, this way I have more control over how the final image played out.

Hope you guys like the patrol zeppelin in the background.
She is actually something I have been working on for a while now, I originally made her in response to Grants story about the Republic of Australia's raid on her Commonwealth sibling.
The zepplein is a modiffied R103 [believe it or not Australia actually had a couple on order pending the military trails of the R101, I think we can conclude from those trials that Australia did not get her order] She is called the HMAS Australia and I gave her the serial number of VH-AFR, but for this picture I thought she would make a perfect addition to the Patrol as a flying base of operations.
Here is a quick scan I made of her when I first designed her [she is more evolved now but I am felling too lazy to add any new pics to photobucket]
