The McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) F/A-18 Hornet is a twin-engine supersonic, all-weather carrier-capable multirole combat jet, designed to dogfight and attack ground targets (F/A designation for Fighter/Attack). Designed by McDonnell Douglas and Northrop, the F/A-18 was derived from the latter's YF-17 in the 1970s for use by the United States Navy and Marine Corps. The Hornet is also used by the air forces of several other nations. The U.S. Navy's Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels has used the Hornet since 1986.
This is a new version showcasing the beautiful textures and bump mapping that lacked the previous version. The textures are only 1K and may not give great up close shots. Included is an updated high res, high polygon pilot. This package includes textures for #1 thru #6 jet with last years flight crews. Take your pic to which number you want or throw the formation together for a delta flight pic or animation.
This model was created using tris and some quads. A full quad version to be released by end of March 2015. The model is organized in a clean hierarchy but is not rigged for animation, although each component is ready for animation. This model is native in C4D and uses the symmetry tool (but is separated for other applications) and can be used in many other programs (I am not a 3DS Max user and anyone using the MAX or FBX may need to adjust the reflection to achieve the proper look.
Soon to follow with be my updated F-18D Number 7 jet.
NOTE: All renderings were performed using Cinema 4D and do not necessarily reflect material renderings in Max
