A memory from watching old World War 2 films and documentaries is when a fleet of bomber aircraft discharge their deadly cargo - it looks sort of like rain falling from menacing clouds.
So, to give that memory and thought some life I've started to make the 'The Rainmaker' based on an Avro Lancaster B1 aircraft.
The plans for this project were obtained from Sky Corner - Sky Corner. Aviation Reference
To compliment those plans I also gathered photographic references from several web sites.
Another good reference used was Anders Lejczaks' 'coloacola' site ( www.colacola.se - by Anders Lejczak, 3D Models for download / freebies ) where there is a useful and understandable aircraft modelling tutorial.
Software being used: Cinema4D 9.6, Paint Shop Pro and Maxwell Render.
The plans where cut up using Paint Shop Pro and applied to simple plane primitives in Cinema4D 9.6.
