[REQUEST]Fix my clumsy work? (Quick Mesh tidy up on F/X-18.)

I am by no means a mesh-modeller. More of a 10001011010101 kinda guy.

Just wondering if any proficient aircraft mesh modellers would be able/willing to clean up my ugly engine intakes on the F/X-18C? viewtopic.php?t=7883

I can't really tell you "how" to do it - I am just after something much like the intakes of the SuperHornet, but on the F/X-18... :lol:

Could anyone try having a look PREEETTY please? :D

ill take a look and see if i have the expirience to fix this! i will let you know! ;)

EDIT: yeah i see the problem! no worries! ill have it fixed! ;)

EDIT 2: i been working on it and i had to make a new engine intake...the problem is that the intake of the hornet it way smaller than the intake of the superhornet! it´s gonna take a while to be able to join in the new engine intakes! if anyone wants to have a shot feel free...i dont think ill have it finished in a hurry!

Well unfortunately, my blender hates me, and won't allow me to import your Hornet without an parts of the aircraft getting jumbled up (aileron, nose wheel light, etc...) so basically, I can't fix it and send it to you with out it being broken... However, I can tell you what I think is wrong. You need to select the fuselage in object mode, and click the "Set Smooth" button, and tada, no more ugly sharp angles. ^^

Don't worry about the dnm model corruption - I'll just take the body part of the mesh anyway. ;)

So, do you just want me to send you the smoothed fuselage then?...

If it fixes the problems, yeah perfect! Just the fuselage is all I need worked on. :D

Hey copper, Thanks very much for this.

I've swapped the fuselage over after minimal work, and it's looking a lot better.

I might release an update to the dragons pack soon.

I have 6 months time to push out my next work of art ;) stay tuned!
