Default X-boat and Service Hull

Texturing is finished! The windows are all still just look into empty geometry (no interior details yet) but exterior modeling and textures are pretty much done. As you can see, "Hippity - Hop To It" have been through a lot together in their long career adventuring. The paint has faded, rust is starting to set in, and the hull has taken a few knocks.

Very Cool Dude, But ...

Is that Rust I see on the X-boat Hull?

Very cool pics. How does the hull rust in vacuum?

Lol...you ever sometimes get TOO close to a project, and the device that pulls your head out of your butt sometimes fails to activate? Yeah, this is one of those times. Dunno why, but while texturing away, my brain said "Hey, it needs burn marks from reentry, and a little rust too...."

So I guess I better go back and fix that. While I'm at it, I think the X-boat needs a little more hull plating...looks pretty bare compared to the service hull, don'tcha think?

Anyway, here's a clean shot.

Agree about the hull plating.

I'd tone down that red, too - a little darker and less saturated.
