    Not very original but I fancied the challenge of a Cornet. It has lots of nice little details but inevitably, I ran out of time to do them.

    Well, I'm hoping to start discussion over which tool sets work best for any given task.

    For instance, BEVEL and ROVE could be used almost exclusively, but what a PITA that would be.

    Thanks Rudy.
    For some reason, I used Point Extender a lot on this. I can't remember the last time I used that method (Extend, move rotate) but it just seemed the right tool for the job.

    Very nice work, Iain.

    I think I just got a tromboner.

    I went a more comical route with a pushable horn. It even has a step for riding down hills

    And yea I know it's out of scale.

    A battered old Bugle.
    Mainly Rail Extrude and well under an hour but I stole the mouthpiece from my Cornet so I'll self disqualify.

    Excellent! Everyone!

    Iain - Fantastic. I'm picking up some pointers looking at your model. Well Done!

    AKA - blown away . love it.

    Jeric - I used a plugin called Bezier Bridge quite a lot to get the compound curves and a nice graduated diameter along the main curve (faster than setting up a double, or quadruple rail - for me, with these particular curves, at least).

    As for my horn, my eyes always seen to be bigger than my subpatches. I kept going with what I started. Far enough to think it wasn't "right" to post progress in the 1hr challenge thread, so I moved it over to "Work in Progress".

    If anyone is so inclined.... http://forums.newtek.com/showthread.php?t=126960

    Joe, thanks for that detail! Pictures are nice, but hints like yours will help us strivers in our humble efforts.

    akaracquel , that's a really complex curve! I find it difficult to separate a spline in the Z axis (typically, could be any 'the flat axis'). Could you relate some of the techniques you used in construction toe keep straight which bit was going over which?


    (Feature request: a cyclic color set for the nodes in the Spline Draw Tool, to give the modeler better feedback as to which is which. All of them being light blue now, it's easy to get confused.)
