Aerocat Teaser Poster by Scifiwarships
Aerocat Teaser Poster
Here's a teaser poster for my website. I think it's safe to show this now, as the site will be online in a few days. I hope you will come and visit, vote when the time comes, and maybe even join in on a contest or two at some point.

This particular model will feature as a contest model some time later this year. I will post another collage like this one within a few days, with a different model to inform of the opening of my site.

Cockpit Test7 by Scifiwarships
Cockpit Test7
Okay this is the rear part of the cockpit. on the bulkhead to the left you can see the circuit breaker panel, in the center is a very basic fold down toilet. to the right is the galley.
On either side there is a life raft canister in the event of a crash. In the foreground you can sort of make out the racing seats with five point harness and my brand new Stellar Dynamics Aerotech logos on the shoulder straps. There's still  a lot more to do here, the frame around the cockpit has to be sorted, and the whole damn thing needs to be mounted in the fuselage of the craft. I also need to do something more to the floor, as it still looks a little bare.

Here's another test render  from my latest build. this time it's the onboard galley. 
Galley Test by Scifiwarships
Galley Test
This is a test render of the LHS aft cockpit bulkhead in my latest build. As this is an ocean crossing racer that is supposed to fly for up  to 36 hrs at a time I thought it needed a basic galley.
I'm not too happy with the colors, there's  a little too much red here, so I might change the material on the emergency door handle.
I know this isn't really very interesting, but I hope it's going to look nice when it's rendered within the completed cockpit.

Cockpit Test3
Yet another test photo to see if materials and layout is okay. This is a shot of a cockpit I am working on right now. It's part of the flying catamaran from my last upload. This is my most complex model yet and it's taking forever to finish... I hope the result will justify all of the work.

I have been working on a webshop for close to a year now and it's getting close to launch. It's taking ages to get right, and part of the reason is that I have constantly been refining the idea behind the webshop. Based on the feedback I have been getting here and on Facebook I have come to the conclusion that just selling models is giong to be very difficult.
Part of the problem is that I am not aiming for the professional market, I want to sell to the vast number of personal users and hobbyists, like yourself. Why is this a problem? Well, pretty much everyone want's to design and build their own stuff rather than play with allready finished models. Turns out  my potential customers are my biggest competitors as well, hehehe..
That's why I have decided to add a contest function to my shop. The idea is that people who buy one of my models will be elligible for an online contest with a decent cash prize for the winner.  What does this mean? Well, it pretty much means what it says. If/When you buy a model from me you have a choice. You can do with the model whatever you want, it's completely royalty free, no strings attatched. 
You can also, should you choose to, do something with it, like redesign, render, write a story, animate or make your own thing based on the concept, and then post the result in an online gallery on my site. Here anyone can come and watch, then vote on the best entry and after a limited time, the one with the most votes will be announced as winner and will recieve a cash prize for their effort.
If this thing goes okay, There will be contests on a regular basis, based on models I make, and the first price will grow according to the number of participants.
The long term plan is to hold new contests every two weeks, with 1st place prizes, hopefully in the range of 200-2000 USD.

In order for this to work I am dependent on feedback from you, so I can make the best possible setup from the start. That's whay I'm holding polls here on my DA site. I really need the information your votes provide.

Thank you very much for taking the time to read this.
