DragonFly Assualt Transport
Saturday, October 14, 2006

Latest updates for the DragonFly Assault transport. The DragonFly was used by the independents as an Assault transport, combat medivac and combat supply craft during the Unification war. Cheap tough and rugged they distinguished themselves in various conflicts, especially in the special forces role, inserting and extracting troops deep behind enemy lines with startlingly few losses. This Ship is called Shadow, remembering the Alliance destruction of that planet during the unification war. The modelling is almost done on this. A few embellishments left, and I want to add a small airlock. The internal areas are mostly done (though you can't see them here) with just some minor updates to go. She's mostly rigged for animation and just requires texturing.

Shinyrific, Citizen! Is that all CGI? It looks 100% real world. Very nice design. If FF were still on TV, I could see Joss & Co. using this as a "cousin" ship to a Firefly. Show us the insides.

Oh...this is seriously brilliant, Citizen! I bet the good people of Zoic would be mighty jealous of your work here;)

Gotta question though: does the Dragonfly-class have variable geometry engines like Fireflies? Cuz I would wonder how they land if they don't...

The Engines can rotate 360 degrees, allowing for VTOL take-off and landings, really cool barrel rolls and the odd Crazy Ivan.

At the end of the wings you may notice cones that attach to the engines, these are the motors that swivel the engine pods.

Unlike the FireFly class which has to withdraw it's hydraulics in order to allow the thrusters to swivel the Dragonfly can do it at a moments notice, allowing it to make combat manurers that even smaller craft would find difficult to keep up with.

Not Firefly related.

Just my entry to the scifi-meshes Sensei challenge.



DragonFly Assualt Transport
Had some time to do some modelling recently, here is the result. Not finished yet, just the basic shape, the interior, hull plates and other embellishments still need to be added, not to mention texturing, but it gives you a rough idea.

The back story is that the DragonFly class Transport was used by the Independents for long range troop carrying (Special Forces insertion etc), supply drops and ferrying the wounded. After the war they were either scrapped or sold onto civilian buyers, where they found employment with smugglers and even as blockade runners due to their survivability and speed.



Serenity In 3DS Max
All external modelling has been completed now, just needs the internal areas visible from the outside, texturing and rigging to be completed.

I hope the file isn't too large.



Mal as Anime
Next in my line of anime versions of the crew is Mal: Crits/suggestions gladly accepted.


Kaylee as Anime
Been doing a bit of drawing and decided to do a series of Anime versions of the crew. Heres Kaylee:


Serenity Model Update
Finally finished the detailing on the crew dome/cockpit area, i've still got to detail the shuttle dock and add cockpit windows but i'll be doing that when i've modelled the shuttles and cockpit interior.
Oh and I just passed my driving test! Woo-hoo :).



Serenity Model Update
Managed to get time to do some more work on my model of serenity so thought i'd upload what i've got. The engines and thrusters are finished now, and the crew section just needs detailing.


Serenity Model Update
Requested that i add some 'sneak previews' of the model as i go so here is one...
Completed the detailing on the main engine 'prongs', and added the 'rotator' within the arch...
Ill try and add images every now and then as specific parts are completed, progress is going fairly slow tho... :)
