This is a generic jet airliner, loosely based off the Boeing 737 transport model.



&lt;li&gt;A fully rigged armature, with control surfaces and landing gear constrained and rigged to make animating a breeze.&lt;/li&gt;

&lt;li&gt;A complete set of hi-res textures. The Inkscape .svg&#39;s used to create the textures are also included in the download, allowing you to create your own airliner with any color scheme, modifications, and fiddly bits.&lt;/li&gt;

&lt;li&gt;A complete material setup. Two blends are included; the default is a Cycles-ready model, fully set up with node materials and shaders. The second (with a _BI on the end of the file name) is a Blender Internal Render Engine-ready file, perfect for lonely, nostalgic sunset flights.&lt;/li&gt;

&lt;li&gt;A clean, all-quads topology, making modifications easy.&lt;/li&gt;


Note that this airliner doesn't have an interior, as the interior setup I created is much more complex and isn't suited to much outside of the project.

    Thank <em>you</em>. Without Blendswap, I would have no self-esteem to speak of, and I'd be just a little crunchy shell. You people are the best thing that's ever happened to me.

    I exaggerate rather largely.

    Cycles, like it says in the description.

    Yep, I always try to make everything all-quads. Ever since I discovered Campbell Barton's fantastic Loop Tools and the Spin Edge tools, I've been like a pig in mud.

    I also need to look up those tools... The model is amazing, and I used it in the following video:

    The only thing I didn't like was how the texture mapping was set up. Since I didn't have a map of where all those quads went, I had to guestimate quite a lot on editing the texture picture. For example, the door vs the rest of the plane side. I had wanted to put the Alaska on the door and have it match up. But since I didn't have a good map (where the parts ended and exactly how large it was, or where I'd have to cut the picture I put in), I ended up just putting it further back.

    So, suggestion for another time, while the lines document was helpful for the most part, a more complete texture map (like a uv map), would be more helpful. Other than that, it is an amazing model. Good job :)

    How come the plane disappears when you switch it from object mode to edit mode?
