Der Psychopath

Until very recently unknown was this Luftwaffe ace, said to have scored even more kills than the famous Erich Hartmann. Kept secret because the Luftwaffe considered him like a kind « V-Waffe » wonder weapon of some sort , due to his success . His definitive score is yet unknown …

Hans Pervitin was so « deadly » that it would shoot down almost anything he would meet in the air. This caused some problems when serving in regular Luftwaffe units as he shot several German planes and even some of his wingmens…

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.

    Amazing work on the plane and scene in general! The face seems a bit off, but other than that I simply love this piece!

    Everything is cool! I like it!
    Except tires and the airfield: 1st are too smooth and clean. 2nd is too flat (too obvious it's a texture) and has no a bit of grass between planes (it's impossible in nature). Add these details and the picture will "show the ace" :)

  3. From my limited experience in Flight Gear I'd guess this plane is a bitch to land... probably like skating with stilts on ice...

  4. Did he have some kind of radar? If not i can't see him shoot down anything because he's got zip forward view. All he sees is the backend of this huge enginebay. Love the picture though. It has a cute kind of wackyness.

  5. Nice rendering! Looks like something from a cool CG movie. I too would love to see more atmospheric stuff / details, as a matter of personal taste.   Regardless, I really dig it and to my untrained eye looks rock solid to me as is. Thx for sharing your work!
