Contact - Air Truck VTOL by Shimmering-Sword Contact - Air Truck VTOL by Shimmering-Sword
Every scifi specialist team needs themselves a tilt rotor, so here is the Contact incarnation. Used the same process as the other vehicles so far, 3D prep work being key to the finish.

For :iconbiometal79: ~biometal79

Contact designs are not for personal or commercial use, no derivative works please.

Do you think that this is superior to the Bell V-280?

They've very different in size, and one is real while the other is scifi, so I can't compare them.

what is the capacity for your aircraft? the normal crew for the osprey is a pilot, a co pilot, and 2 flight engineers

What are you? So perfect, the placing of the rotors and engines, then nose, and form the looks of that gun on it, I want to guess a large .70 caliber?

Seeing this design makes me think of the VTOL transports from the Appleseed remake. Though those two side spots that look like doors are probably clamps or something to hold the module in place.

:iconshimmering-sword:
Shimmering-Sword Featured By Owner May 30, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Nah they are doors. I was definitely inspired by appleseed, though both are for the same purpose and origin. Based on the osprey design, just up sized to carry more, or powered armor.

I've been trying to design a VTOL set in an alternate history 1970s. Do you have any tips I could use? Right now, I'm trying to blend the designs of the V-22 and a UH-1.

:iconshimmering-sword:
Shimmering-Sword Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
You're on the right track. Try not to take too much from the V-22, and take bits from a larger variety of 1970 era aircraft if needed.

Is that a detachable cargo pod on the bottom of the craft?
Such modularity would be quite useful in a militart craft of this type.
