Concorde Redux Series
« on: January 11, 2019, 08:37:52 PM »
Hi,

here are some pictures carefully -and slowly!- handcrafted ;D those past weeks/months
with a little bit of help from Terragen.
Terragen 4 used for environment, aircraft rendered in max, compositing/FX in Photoshop.





More to come soon... ;)

Fantastic render! The clouds looks really awesome as does your water.  Look forward to seeing more!  :)

Being a longtime employee in the aircraft manufacturing business, I always appreciate the graceful beauty of the machines we put to the sky.  The Concorde is no exception.  It was the most magnificent of all, and maybe will be unmatched unless sub-space travel can be developed.  Nice model and placement! Except the "nose-down" position of the one in front is only for takeoff and approach...

Thanks you for your kind comments!  ;)

You're right, the visor/nose down position was essentially used during take-off (at 5°) and landing (12.5°), but the visor down/nose @5° was also used for subsonic flight, and here I though it would be needed for clear pilot vision on the leading aircraft during formation flight ;)

To be continued...

Special one : The Solar Eclipse flight

The sun corona was rendered in Terragen also, playing with clouds. The aircraft was composited afterwards but rendered using a Terragen-generated skybox for the color/light distribution (realistic for a solar eclipse)

Wow - wish it was still flying.  I visited a museum(can't remember where)where an old stripped out one was on display and I was struck by how small it was.

Yes and no : it looks small because of the small diameter of its fuselage, but it's 61.7m long which is almost twice the length of an Airbus A319, or 9/10th the length of a 747.

Nice models… and the pilots must have a pulse of 250 beats per minute while flying in this formation ;)
