This digital 3D product consists of both grouped and standalone High Definition models of the Swing Arms used to fuel and service the Saturn Apollo and Skylab launches between 1966 and 1975.
All arms have been built to accurately align with both my Saturn Apollo and Saturn Apollo Lite models allowing close up rendering of the iconic launch scene where the umbilical connections break away and the arms retract (without the need to purchase the whole Apollo Mobile Launcher product). They could also be used as generic service arms to connect other launch towers to rockets of a fiction based nature.
Modeled with precision using the original architect's scaled drawings, along with extensive photographic and video research spanning over a year.
Modeled with LightWave 9.6
Suitable for HD video, high-res film close-ups and print
Models contains the following: 34 object layers (including interchangeable extension platforms) 601705 polygons 509314 quads, 92391 tris, and 0 ngons Standard Lightwave materials & texture maps
HDRI skydome used in preview images NOT included in file. Preview Images rendered with default Lightwave 9.6 scanline renderer.
34 texture and bump maps (PNG format) Most textures scaled at 36 pixels per foot
Model built to real-world scale Units used: Feet and Inches. Typical Swing Arm is approx 40 feet long.
Pivot points and morph targets are preset in Layout file for umbilical release mechanisms and arm retractions shown in animated preview files and downloadable videos.
'Apollo Swing Arms.lwo' model and 'Swing Arms launch positions.lws' scene file is set up to exactly align with the Saturn Apollo launch vehicle. The arms are also available as separate standalone models (with morphs set) to be repositioned as required when matched to other launch vehicle scenes.
Separate morph target layers/models are also available for the FBX and OBJ products to allow morphs to be setup in other 3D programs
Fully compatible with my Saturn Apollo models (NOT INCLUDED)
Complete Apollo Mobile Launcher model NOT included
