Cruiser VI A15 Crusader, Mark 1.

Started with basic low poly model, just like I did with the Tiger.

First, the wheel

The roadwheels are 11168 polygons... each...

Next the drive sprocket. Those teeth are not modelled separately and tacked on, like I normally would. They are all extrusions of the actual wheel rim. Apart from the nuts, the whole sprocket is formed from 1 object.

Altogether. I really should get on with those damn turret rivets!

You make me so mad and jealous, I wish I could model like that. Nice work Killa.

Holy shit!


There's no way that'd work in a game if one WHEEL is 11100 polys...=/ That must've been a fuck of a resource hog! :)

Looks awesome tho.

Great model, so many questions to ask on how you made it. Good job.

Working on the Hull MG turret, and totally rebuilt the tracks. They're now accurate according to the photos I took of a crusader tank at Bovington. :wub:

After being lost, found, corrupted, recovered, lost again then put on hold due to an Iraq tour, she's finally done. Only took 4 years...

Well, it's not the prototype, but I did base it on the very early versions. I even found the types of rivets used on the early ones and modeled them, 5 different types and all accurately placed.

Thanks also to Bovington Tank Museum staff for letting me climb up on their Crusader and Covenanter tanks for photos of the engine deck and turret roof!

It seemed to be optional. The very very early versions had mountings for both types.

Towards the latter versions, mainly after the hull turret was removed, they usually went with the normal two.

I could zip them up and send them your way if you really want them. They're mainly close ups of the details.
You still have msn?
