Happy you like it. I spend quite some time browsing this forum, not contributing, but it's been a source of inspiration. Only normal I post these images here.
So, modeling and rigging are almost done now, still some details to do, like rigging the rudder, modeling antennas and small stuff... Then texturing, so it will take some time before it's finished.
here again this beautiful monster and a screencast showing how this mess of flaps and landing gears doors works… Took me a while to understand. It's almost a Transformer.











Any chance of the model being able to be 3D printed?
No sorry.To many pieces and opened meshes, would need a specific model for that, maybe using this one as a base, but it would very different anyway.

Hard to say...
I started it mid august, during the holidays, working every days on it , but it was variable, one i would work 2 hours, and the other the all day long... Then stopped 4-5 days to visit family. Now I'm back to the office, so i'm slower on it. Modeling finished when i posted the last images here. Now i'm unwarpping the mesh, long and boring.

That is looking great! I remember my brother had the model kit of that back in the '60s (Aurora or Revell?) where it came with two models, one in cruise condition and one in landing configuration. Talk about a flying Rube Goldberg machine.

Thanks ,
It must be the Revell kit then, Just found one on ebay last week :)



Was surprised by the size of the box. It's a pretty crude kit though, and a -100… Monogram did a -200 at smaller scale, but hard to find and expensive !!
The more I think about it, indeed would be nice to have a good -200 model.
Finished unwrapping the mesh, now baking some ambient occlusion maps, then will start "painting" the thing. Here the first map at small scale :

Hi,
I'm in the process of doing the textures, trying to figure out where to place some service doors, airscoop, stuff like that.
Could someone know what is a "H.F. RCVR/XMRT" and a "ADS" ? I think "ECS" should be for Environmental Conditioning System. Would any of these need some kind of airscoop ?



And here a screen to keep you waiting :p

Thanks :) Happy you like it.So, I had some bad luck with that model... Wanted to do some high res textures to be able to make closeup renders. then in the middle of working on the second one (aft fuselage,underside and wings) my computer video card failed :/ learned it's a known problem on this machine type Vid card (late 2011 MacBook Pro) , so it will go back to Apple next week and dunno when I'll get it back. For time being working on a older spare machine, and it's of course longer to work on the textures or make renders.Anyway , worked on the aft diffuse map today. No bump and specular maps on the aft part for now…Here the status of the "prototype" on the "tarmac" :

B2707-200 was a dreadful design indeed. :o L-2000 killer. ;D
It isn't formed with this. Obviously over weight. Fatal for the aircraft.
Anyway outstanding work.

Ok, finished now . let say…
We are the 11th of october 1971, they are rushing the prototype to 1st flight, making it fly unpainted, cause they want to move on fast to the testing schedule. And want to be able to shown the monster at the 1972 Paris air show.
Here are photo shots from that very first flight, taken from the chase plane. testing various configurations above clouds layers.










next will have to paint it in that mustard/white prototype scheme.

Hi,
Done myself a present ( was my birthday last month…) .
I have a neighbor who is a printer, and wanted to try a big size print of a Boeing SST render. 900 x 400 mm.



A bit expensive, but turned out very nice, as on screen. On a satin photo quality paper. Glued it on a foam board with spray glue.
Then sprayed a protective mat varnish. Couldn't find a semi-mat one… But anyway, very happy with it :)

I know you've already said "no" to the idea of a 3D printed physical model based off this, but I'd still suggest that you give it a shot. Probably several model kit companies would be happy to make a kit off of your model. Given the level of detail and the sheer ludicrous elegance, I'd suggest looking at 1/72 scale for it; certainly wouldn't go smaller than 1/144. But a 1/72 or (dream world) 1/48 scale model of the 2707-200 would be freakin' astonishing.

Well, I said no to the idea of using that very model for 3d printing. I could use it as template to do one optimized for 3d printing though…
Problem is size, at 318 feet long for 2707-200, 96.92m, that would make 67cm long at 1/144, 1.34m at 1/72, 2m at 1/48 ! if my counts are correct...
Not doable in 3d printing (or very very expensive…). So maybe resin, but I have zero experience with that, or yes injected plastic… but who would do that ?
I think that's why revell took 1/200 for their, and even then, it's the size of a 1/72 WWII bomber model. At that size it's maybe doable in 3d printing.

...

You make it sound like a bad thing. Who *wouldn't* want a 2-meter long 2707-200???

Oh, yes indeed. That's why maybe the way to go would be to work with a kit company like Fantastic Plastic or whomever and make sure the finances work. Perhaps a Kickstarter.

A model I'm currently making a CAD model of has a wingspan of 11.6 inches; this, I'm told, will fit in one piece on the printer bed. So assuming 12 inches, the 1/144 2707-200 fuselage would need to be divided slightly more than two times... say, a fore fuselage and an aft fuselage, with separate parts for nose and tail. A 1/72 would need the fuselage divided into at least four pieces; the pieces would then be bonded together and molds made, with the kit parts being laid up in thin fiberglass. The result would be an impressively expensive kit, but it'd also be an impressive kit. Cast the landing gear in white metal.

It's a beautifully done plane, but I wonder how long it took for you to get that good at it.

Another thought is that it would, if I've not said it before, look positively incredible in FSX or Prepar3d.  Depending on how things were done with the interior and the flight dynamics, it could easily be a payware project.  I did a bit of a look around and readily found a tool to convert Blender models to FSX, and was watching a video on how to use Blender to build a FSX aircraft model.  As I probably have said before, previous attempts at modeling either version (200 or 300) were kind of sad, even if the VC did include the control animations.  I'd tried to fix the flight dynamics, but found that once I got the speed and altitude fixed, the engines would power the plane through the sound barrier at flight idle, and the brakes wouldn't hold it in place on the ground.  Apparently I need to learn more about engine thrust tables...

Again, a superb job.

To model an aircraft accurately in FSX, the first thing you have to do is get the propulsion system modeled accurately. If you don't get that nailed down first, your aero work will always be off somewhere in the flight envelope. Also, FSX doesn't properly model supersonic propulsion, so you would be better off writing a propulsion gauge/app to overwrite the FSX system.

If you were just trying to get it to work using the values in the config file, then that just won't get you where you need to be. You can get supersonic fde's to work in FS, but they're never completely correct because of the limitations. If you want a chance at getting kind of accurate, I recommend you pick up Air Wrench over at mudpond.org . I've used Gerry's flight dynamics workbook before, but for most people Air Wrench is what I recommend. He's done great work for us before.

However, I would love to see the production version of the 2707 or the L2000 in flight sim. I was looking at modeling one of the Douglas SST designs from the 80's, because I have a lot of flight performance data on it from a NASA simulation, but it's just too much work.

Thanks, yes, would be nice in a flight sim for sure. I don't play flight sims though.
And the model would require some work I think. It's now 790000 polys , I know recent flight sim models can be very hi-poly, but don't know if it would take that… Also all the windows are alpha textures and bump to make the "border" look realistic, no modeling .
And of course no interior, just placeholders objects to block vision through windows.

Problem is i'm doing several things at the same time, some texture liveries for this model, some renders, and some other things completely unrelated. And I also have that idea of doing a 3d printable version of this plane. But don't know when I'll start it, though I shouldn't delay too much because some big works coming in the coming months, and i'll not have much time for it… Anyway, here some small profiles renders of the model with the Prototype and PanAm liveries, I don't have good "in scene" images of these yet.

I love them! But now I have to bring out the spelling and grammar police; I know you meant "comfort", not confort and it should also read "times" for five times faster, not time. I'm just letting you know, as I don't think English is your first language, although I'm not sure, and it could just be the result of typing too fast.

That's going to make great wall paper on my PC. :)

Thanks. Being no aerodynamist I've checked Wikipedia for "fuselage strakes" :
"On both supersonic and subsonic types, smaller strakes are sometimes applied to the forward fuselage to control the fuselage flow at high angles of attack ; for example the Concorde SST has small nose strakes "to get a better directional stability".
Note they are not present on the 2707-100 (without canards). So maybe had to do with redirecting the airflow after the canards at certain AoA ?
