I don't think that's going to happen, pplace!

I've got the connections in. I still need to model the cockpit, sensors, and antennae. If I can get all that in I will make turnbuckles and fasteners on the guy wires. I've done all I could to balance detail and poly economy and it's sitting at 10,431 polys.

Boof,

You are definitely doing this plane justice

As I said in the original thread, this plane saved my house!

Wow, with all seriousness this place certainly has a new top modeler!

Thanks for all the nice comments guys.
I finally got a chance to get some modeling done on the Air Tractor tonight. I have a total of 13,066 polys currently and have all of the major details in. The cockpit has it's seat, stick, IP but still needs seat belts and rudder pedals. This plane has a very busy exterior as well and I'm working through each piece slowly. I have the antennae, control horns (if that's what you call them) below the wing, and supports under the horizontal stab. Exterior items that still need to be modeled are nav lights, handles, foot holds...etc.

Any geometry that is hidden i.e. (the back and bottom of the seat, the ends of each cylinder connecting the floats to the air frame) is deleted. Also cylinders that have a small diameter are reduced to 6 sided. Long flat surfaces with no change in angle will generally have no edge loops in the middle. I don't use spheres or hemispheres hardly ever due to their tenancy to eat up polys. I instead use bump an CS to accomplish the look. Here are some screens of my geometry if it helps.

That's looking real good Boof. I like seeing the edge lines in your shots. You definitely have a great deal of patience looking at all the struts and guide wire for the floats.
