Malabo Airport

Malabo Airport

About ten years ago I flew to Malabo; a small island of the coast of East Africa. It was one of my most impressive flights. Like a opening scene of Jurassic Park; lush jungle, volcanoes, and beautiful clouds. After landing I spotted a wreck just next of the runway. It was left there some time ago. Time and the tropical climate had left its mark.

Modeling: 3ds Max
Rendering and Vegetation: Vue
Textures: Photoshop

Early Arrival


Inspired by the beautiful Scandinavian landscapes I build this image.

Using the same technique as the F16, I imported the model from Flight Simulator into Blender via 3ds Max to Vue.

I love the mix of vue with “traditional” 3d modeling. I didn’t do the modeling of the aircraft (I thank iFly for borrowing their beautiful model) so I have to come back one day to this image and replace the aircraft with one of my own. For what it’s worth.. I modelled the approach lights

Import oh la di ye


I found out it is possible to import models from FSX into 3ds Max via Blender and then export to obj so you can import it into Vue. Are you still following me? It is not so hard but also not easy. Especially textures is hard work. I Thank Aerosoft for their beautiful F16 model.

DirectX Ripper


I stumbled upon a program called 3d Ripper Dx. You can rip 3d scenes and objects from a game or program using DirectX. Isn’t it really cool that this is possible? I use 3ds Max 2012 64bit and thats not supported right now (up to 2011 32bit). You can rib as .obj and import this. I ripped a plane from Flight Sim but if I import the .obj into Max the object is skewed. But there must be a workable solution. I will look into it in the future when I find use for it.

Phantom F4

I played around with one of the many beautiful planes Anders Lejczak modelled. Check out his website for tutorials, images and models.

B767 on the beach

B767

My girlfriend took the photo a few weeks ago on the beach. Still working on the B767 but no harm in rendering some test images. KLM no longer has the 767 in service so I might have to rebuild it and make a more current plane.
