Nice work. But i envision this being used in more then one role
Marrekie's avatar
Yeah me as well. I was actually considering to do a firefighting version. 
buried-legacy's avatar
Yeah. I can also see the thing being coverted to bus work ambulance detail and survallance.

This is really cool, and it looks like something we could actually see in service in the not too distant future. I love futuristic craft built from a realistic point of view! Nicely done!

Thanks for the positive words! :)

Great... the ''KNRM'' wish they had this:P
Marrekie's avatar
Haha, indeed. Seriously though; IMO VTOL's should be standard issue for coast guards. Unfortunately, such aircraft (like the V22) have huge price tags.

yeah just as dredging the canal once in a while, so they can actually go on a rescue with their boats :D
they cut down the economy at all the wrong places, anyway cool design, looks very plausible

Sweet design !

Awesome design! I sketched a troop transport once that isn't far from this design. How'd you get the textures so smooth?
Marrekie's avatar
Hey man. I'd love to have a look at your design. Is it included in your gallery? The textures are actually 3d intersection in the model which were colored in orange / blue. =D
Borg-Man's avatar
Ah, I figured as much. Texturing in SU isn't the easiest of things eh ;) It's not in my gallery, I'll upload an updated image of it soonish, so for now here's an old render :)

Smooth design.
Wouldn't mind having one of those. =)
Makes me think of the Orcas of the C&C game.
Is the lower part thought to be detatchable?
Marrekie's avatar
I was indeed hoping the design would suggest that =D
