Egg Shaped Models - Aliens Dropship Egg (Part 1)

I've been thinking about creating a series of 3D  models to be made available on Shapeways. Three models have sprung to mind (Aliens UD-4L Dropship, Aliens APC and the Space Shuttle on the launch pad). However I wanted them to be slightly unique. Since it's almost Easter, I've thought about egg shaped models!

The first model I'm working on is the Aliens UD-4L Dropship. Here is an early concept of the Dropship.

The rear folding Weapon Pods have not been added to the model, as I'm not happy with them.

Aliens M577 Armoured Personnel Carrier 3D Model (Part3)

I've been working on the interior 3D model of Aliens M577 APC using hoto Stills from the film and the blueprints of the APC from Hydride-ion. The interior has a lot of objects in it, which I'll use some of them. This is mainly because creating renders of other high detail projects takes sometimes a few hours to render.

This is one of a number of back burner projects that I return to when I need to elevate stress from my main projects. Often when I'm stuck for information or struggling how to create the 3D model. I also use these back burners to try materials and lighting effects.
