thanks for taking the time to crit my stuff,much appreciated.
On the Fn-FAL I presume ya mean the hi-lights that go along the edge of the grip at the front?
if your talkign about the main sections I was thinking along the lines of if ya ahve a flat surface the areas around the edges are gnerally darker than the central area....maybe I just wasn't sutle enough??
Anyway i have posted the texture so u can have a closer look [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]. http://www.hedgeart.com/random/fn-faltex512.jpg
As for the Nh90 I might just add a subtle green into that overall colour just so its not such a saturated blue and of course il lsort the window fault out also....its just bottom one taht has a rim the main windows are how I made them according to the refs.The thing I found really hard with the helicopter which im really happy with how it came out is the plastic/fibreglass kind of look...one of my better overall pieces I think.
The clock...I might well go ahead and texture it anyway,have a real mess around at last with specular maps, bump maps etc,see where it goes.
Again thanks for your time gauss
