Challenger 3

By Chrisofedf
The Challenger departs the Underwater shipyard at Atlantic command and off onto another mission.

Another concept from my old ideas, Challenger 3 was an underwater action/adventure series which being honest, basically was a mergence of Stingray, Seaquest DSV and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea. 

The ship itself, I sketched out last year and hasn't really changed that much in its conversion to 3d. It is essentially a small frigate designed to protect colonies and go on special missions. Takes a crew of 4. Just for a change, it is controlled from the bottom where those big windows are. It can also launch a single 1 man fighter.

While the shows mentioned above had a big impact on the design, I actually was also heavily influenced by the game "Submarine Titans" an amazing game which sadly is no longer compatible with windows.

Here is the original Sketch, the proper out line and the finished version together.

The smaller submarine is another which I designed "Moray 1" a reference to another great sub game. Deep Fighter.

Love awesome design man Love can i ride it can i ride it? :happybounce: know, submarine titans is actually compatible with windows, got it to work pretty well on windows 7, i imagine even windows 8 wouldn't pose more of a problem. if you're ever interested in playing or just chatting about it, lemme know :) (Smile)  it would be fun to play the thing with someone :happybounce:

Hi :) I actually managed to get it to work in the end, but it involved a complicated system of turning off windows explorer as it was booting up, don't think it could survive multiplayer. It is great fun though :)

This is a MASTERPIECE! You may want to Contact Fantastic-Plastic about Turning Your Design into a Model!

That would be cool :) . Don't think they accept unsolicited submissions though.
You may want to ask them Any way. OK?

I really like the underwater feeling in your image and the submarine looks great. The only thing that bothers me is the dark window in the top of the front. It looks somewhat pasted on. Otherwise, great work!

Thanks :) Ive been in too minds about it, It breaks up the shape, but does seem a little pointless. Might leave it out in future iterations.
