Made for the Blender Subreddit’s November 2018 contest. The theme was “Birds”. I’m sure not what the theme selector had in mind, but planes are birds too. And it was fun to model a Cessna 172, and surprisingly more fun to recreate QANTAS livery.
Once again I spent too much time focused on tiny details that aren’t visible in the final render. Hundreds of tiny rivets added to the height map, and lost.
