Don't hold your breath; most people have better things to do."This needs a good paint job, but I don't have any great inspiration at the moment. I'm definitely thinking alien spacecraft (and therefore some weirdness), an a cockpit somewhere along the cone."
This is a pretty interesting design. I keep coming back to it to see if anyone has come up with a paint design for it yet.
But seriously, what script/font are those markings in?
What's shown is approximately satin (I think?), which looks good to me in renders. In reality it would probably be gloss, unless I successfully got de-glossed Future to work. And if I actually built it, which is not happening in the near term.I like it. It looks like the black is matte; is that the plan?
I'm amused that everyone is focusing on the flame color. That's just an artifact of the way I generated the image. Original flame was red, but it mixed with a dark blue background to become purple. In hindsight, I can think of a better way to do the flame in the future so that it'll be a bit more "true", although it'd be more effort and I probably wouldn't bother.I'm a little surprised on the flame color by color mixing. Potassium gives you a nice lilac flame by itself.
I beg to differ. This is fun, always time well spent.I can safely assure you that this is time poorly spent...
