A small sci-fi helicopter, modeled as part of a "Low-Poly in an Hour" competition. The copter doesn't have weapons, and it has only a simple moving rotor. It is less than 200 polys, however, so there's plenty of room for missiles, etc. without placing too much stress on your CPU.

    It's perfect for RTS games. Do you have some texturing insights to share? I like your worn metal very much as well.

    "I’ll suggest this for use in LinWarrior and add it to OGA once the texturing history is clear " Or TA Spring.

    The textures I hand-painted from scratch in GIMP, with CC photo reference. You won't run into any nasty legal problems if you try to use it in your game.

    @sourcerror: I have a tutorial in the works. As a quick tip, I paint scratches using the Acrylic and Chalk brushes in GIMP in "Screen" mode over a metal texture, with baked AO set to multiply over the whole thing. Details are photo reference again; paint is done using the "Sample Merged" feature of the Paint Bucket tool.
