1989 Boeing Vertol AV-22-LSOC Ghost by melkorius 1989 Boeing Vertol AV-22-LSOC Ghost by melkorius
The Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey is an American multi-mission, military, tiltrotor aircraft with both a vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL), and short takeoff and landing (STOL) capability. It is designed to combine the functionality of a conventional helicopter with the long-range, high-speed cruise performance of a turboprop aircraft.

The V-22 originated from the United States Department of Defense Joint-service Vertical take-off/landing Experimental (JVX) aircraft program started in 1981. The team of Bell Helicopter and Boeing Helicopters was awarded a development contract in 1983 for the tiltrotor aircraft. The Bell Boeing team jointly produce the aircraft.[4] The V-22 first flew in 1989, and began flight testing and design alterations; the complexity and difficulties of being the first tiltrotor intended for military service in the world led to many years of development.

The United States Marine Corps began crew training for the Osprey in 2000, and fielded it in 2007; it is supplementing and will eventually replace their CH-46 Sea Knights. The Osprey's other operator, the U.S. Air Force, fielded their version of the tiltrotor in 2009. Since entering service with the U.S. Marine Corps and Air Force, the Osprey has been deployed in both combat and rescue operations over Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya.

As a rendered model, it's a 50-fotter. Viewed from closer than 50 feet, the deficiencies show up. beyond 50 feet, it looks gorgeous. I think we're standing just inside that 50 foot circle.

But it still looks good. I can still see where effort went into this render.

You did a great job on this, nobody has the "perfect" piece. Just do the best you can on anything in life, some people will hate it, some people will love it!

Looks nice but the model is pretty basic. It seems as if the details were put in some places and in others not :P Your lighting work is very cool though.

yes, it doesn't have much detail, there's no kind of bump or representation of the different plates of the body. But well, it's a work in progress :D
