Just turn up your screen contrast.
This is fun, gimme a few minutes.
Edit: Here we go...
Looks more WC2ish to me...but since you're a WC2 guy I'll forgive you.
It dosn't look like handdrawn, though. Did you have the same idea about the textures as I?
The red stuff for the engine intakes is what I missed, though.
I just turned off a few detail layers on my Photoshop version of the textures, made the base layers green and metallic grey, rendered it with a lof of light, then resized the renders using poor quality WC2-like sampling.
(And yes, it's supposed to be a WC2 thing - maybe the WCM Rapier-G that shows up 10 years after yours )
Now, if I just had good pictures of the WCM Broadsword...
There's some pictures here (towards the middle of the last full row of pictures, with a nice side view, even if the rest aren't the best for 3-view plan reference), and some general pics here.
That's really cool, thank you!
Am I the only one who thinks it looks like an A-10 that's had the fusalege between the tail and the cockpit chopped off, the wings clipped, and the gun blown up 50 times?
Nope, you got yourself a beliver That rapier would make a nice tankbuster
Yeah, I never understood the whole WWII fighter - the Rapier always looked to me like a dead ringer for an A-10 - the straight wings (WWII fighters usually had some camber to them), the engine, the split tail and huge-ass front mounted gun. It's a space Warthog ... too bad it doesn't do atmospheric.
It dosent do atmospheric?
Nope, it wont, casue its too simple, there aint a silly antigravity drive in it at all, and its wings wont hold it in the air
