Greeting all.

Thought i'd introduce myself. Currently a student using Lightwave 8.5 but will be shifting to 9.2 in the next few weeks. Im pretty new to 3d modelling and absolutely love it.
Anyway I thought you would be able to give me some advice and direction for my first light wave modelling project. This will either be a mig 29 or a su 35. Does anyone know where i can get colour plans from? I have some black and white plans which I can possibly use as bump maps.

Anyway thanks all, I look forward to learning off you all.

Welcome aboard. Nice cat btw. Whats its name? So you prefer modeling non organic stuff huh? Im quite contrary. I prefer organic, but when you have a project that wants them all, and you dont have non organic modellers, then your not asked about your preferences that much you know what I mean.

Anywho, welcome aboard.

Welcome! :)

Thanks for the warm welcome. Im not sure of the cats name, it is a attempt at making my cat jealous, and tricking her into being more active. So far no luck.

Diedond: I enjoy modeling organic stuff aswell, just chose a aircraft as i have to intergrate the model into a photo nicely. I had an idea with the aircraft banking around a building i see outof my classroom. It has mirriored windows so im hoping i can arrange some polygons and mirror the bottom of the jet in the windows of the building.
Having said that, my modelling experiance is very small so i didnt want to bite off more than i can chew. Am looking forward to it tho.
