Okay, I have an affection for the 17 because it is something I have been modelling for a while now for my video projects. Although I am not a
hardcore aviation enthusiast, I still get a woody for airplanes, and one of my central props for one of my projects is the C17. I designed the script
around a modern cargo plane and to my amusement is currently the 17. I have tons of pics of it for reference and find the design way more advanced
than its predecesors. It is a very purposeful design for what it is supposed to do.
Not to link a website, but here is a pic of my 80% complete render of the plane at my website.
3D pic of C-17
The model you see is kind of small, but the file I have for it is almost complete since I posted that pic. It has over 30 moveable surfaces, that can
be animated into a video if I need be. Unfortanetly the project hasn't got off the ground because of lack of finding a production crew, so the
computer models sit in the dust only to be shown to the casual people who it would interest.
Hope you like it.
