AC-130
3d-study / modelling exercise
Here are some fairly old shots of an airplane we animated a good while ago. I know, these beasts kill people not in the most knightly way by circling above at several kilometers hight. Still I was intrigued by the analogy to the ancient ships of the line. Additionally I can't deny that fascination that radiates from crafts like this one, that has been in service for 40+ years, been modified a hundred times and still do. 
 
Hope you like the images!
