Here's another big creation for my animation, it's "ALF1" the Aerial Landing Field.

;) Said you were close when you guessed that I would make a landing field on the Ka-17.

Hmn... well since it's not really such a big thing, I suppose I can tell. :) It is going to be an animation where the Gladiators take of from ALF1 and attack the Flying Tanks. I'm making it as a learning experience since I'm not entirely sure how to make everything and it will be fun to find out.

Current status of ALF1, nearly finished, that means I can almost start animating.

ALF1 Finished :)
Actually "ALF" was an idea I got when I was browsing the web for other pictures of the Ka-17 Flying Tank, on one website I found this old page from a 1930's science magazine which had an airship quite similar to this one. It was supposed to be solar-driven and have a hangar bay and air field where planes could land and refuel. I'm not sure if anyone actually build this thing for real but it was a nice idea to go by.

I'm therefore very happy with the result even though the shape is as ugly as a dead baboon on a very warm summer day. :bananacool2:

If you don't like it that I post images from another source, please say so, it's my mistake then and I will remove it at once ;)

what do you mean "another source"?

like the idea, wasn't there some real prototypes like these built? I know they had plans hanging from hooks along the bottom sides on real airships but don't know if they had an actual landing strip built in... nice

I meant that I didn't upload this to the 3d United Artists Forum but that I used Photobucket instead, I did that because then I can upload larger images.

Also, I don't think this kind of design was ever built for real, however I do remember a scene in Indiana Jones, the Last Crusader where they escape using an aircraft hanging from under an airship ;)

don't worry about the images being from another source, that doesn't matter at all...

Indiana Jones, that's probably where I saw it as well... would be awesome if they did build something like that, but it would probably have to be at the bottom of it for balancing reasons, like the flight pods on the Battlestar Galactica! :)

Yeah, I love BSG. I've thought about redoing my Viper MK 4 I built when I just started 3d modeling, I'm sure I could make something much better out of it now.
