The land warfare museum by Small-Brown-Dog The land warfare museum by Small-Brown-Dog

I was determined to spend more time at the Imperial War Museums Land warfare hall during my last visit to Duxford. The main reason was to catch both early and late examples of the museums Luftpanzers resplendent is their film paint (complete with scuffs and scrapes) for the up and coming Wolfgang Petersen film: Panzer.

Both Luftpanzers modeled in Modo

(Perhaps a better render of the Jag2 might have been a good idea – ah well, too late now all done!)

Having the hover units on articulated "legs" makes a lot of sense for a tank without a turret. Makes it easier to fine tune the aim, if the driver is experienced enough.
Without computer assisted fine manipulation, Im sure it could be easy to overcorrect, and have the whole tank spin out of controll.

This is with the assumption that the other tank has a turret. And Im guessing that the layout of its lift.. fins?... make for a more linear typoe of motion, kinda like standard tracks

They are Both Jaguars. The one with the articulated lift generators is just an earlier incarnation. I see it as being more clumsy and slower than the Jag 2which house the main units within hull length housings. Can be seen better here:
Over to you by Small-Brown-Dog
To be honest I wish I had not added the Jag 2 and just left the original as a museum peice.
I have 3 different new 3D models on the go at the moment and not one will go the way I would like so I difted off to muck about with existing stuff I had done in a photobash session - I rushed it too much I think much the same as I did with "Surprise Visitor" which has some serious shadow issues.

Hmm. Interesting. The articulated version being the starting point, and the non-articulated one being the mark 2 kind of makes my point of articulated lift units being hard to control by a human driver/pilot alone.

Though I still feel that the articulated lift units would benefit a long range sniper type tank, or a close range brawler (if the scientists of this world can work out a way to transport a massive computer stuffed with valves/tubes), and the linear lift units would be better suited to a more general tank. Double so, if it has a rotating turret.

One day I will do a maintenance shot of a tank or aircraft lift unit. I really fancy getting into some old elctrical gear and you talking about valves and stuff has got me thinking again.

If you do, could you throw in an homage to Mr Clarkson, with a "mechanic" hitting the engine with a large hammer? you know, to "fix" it ;)

Clarkson as in "Top Gear" ?
I know this goes against the grain but TP and especially Clarkson gives me the animal.
Perhaps I'm just a freak.

Well, I thought at first that these were real things (then I clicked through).

I'd still want to see the film though (having seen Das Boot in the original German).

I havn't seen Das Boot in years and I keep on promising myself I will.
It will only set me off though and for now I have tried to keep away from the sea war.

You should watch it, and sea what happens.

So this would not be a good time to point out that you've never done an RNAS type since I started Watching you?

Not unless RNAS = Royal Navy Aerial ship.

... suppose I have then.... I dunno... stop confusing me, I'm getting old :)

RNAS - Royal Naval Air Service.

Right, I'm obviously confusing myself here.
The RNAS or the RFC would be too early in my time line.

Ah right. The RAF was formed from the RFC and RNAS in April 1918. And I actually meant the Fleet Air Arm.

Small-Brown-Dog Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2018
Yeah, pretty aware of the RAF orgin :)
Sorry, being so close to RAE Farnborough which was known as the RAF prior to the formation in April 18 has the fact burnt into my brain.
As for the FAA - perhaps an alternative Swordfish attack on an aerial Bismark ?

I have three 3D projects in various stages at the moment and not one will go the way I want so I took some time out to muck about with these.
I should have taken a bit more time on it maybe but it was fun.

Mucking about for the fun of it can be a good recharge.  Looking forward to your next one.
