Duke Artillery Recon Drone (for the Battletech-Universe) by hypernaut
Modelled in Rhino3D, Rendered in Penguin, Composition in CorelDraw
This is a Model for a Recon Drone (for the Battletech-Universe). It is used remotely by a Artillery-mounted tank, to get target-designation. They are carried by the tank in launching-hangar-tube as shown in the sequence. As for this they must be quite compact.
I got a little carried away especially with the rear - I got sure the hydraulics-cylinders at the back-turbines fit really in, in a mechanical way (was quit a pain in the a**, to always adjust them accurately for the "animation"-sequences . Actually this little flyer is supposed to be only a little addon, but the main design is the above mentioned artillery-tank.
Unfortunately I lost the original model in a HDD-crash *snief*, so I have to remodel the whole thing :*-(
It's part of a Fan-Project (with official permission) which will release a Tech-Level 3 Readout at the end of the year.
