Got your pm.. Okay I will bite, might be able to try that over the weekend..

i need more info like will there be covers over the forks, threads on the tyre. is the wheel hub/cover painted or chrome and are the oval slots holes or indents?
in other works,, gimme all the info and completed drawings in order to keep the number of revisions down to a minimum (i don't like revisions) or better still none.
Chromo might be interested in this also,, the more the merrier.

Hi Ed. I just read your PM. I can help with comping and can offer my company online render farm when the time comes. As Dylan said, supply sketches that are as complete as possible with views from multiple angles. I guess you know that already. CG work is time intensive and revisions even more so.
If other members suggest changes, there will be enough revisions there to keep Dylan and anyone else who gets involved in this project busy.

This is a big challenge guys, I hope you are all up to it!

Earl

Thanks to those who responded to my PM's, and for the offers of help.

@ Earl: Thanks for the render farm offer, I will most likely take you up on that. Thanks also for the advice.

@ Dylan: Thanks for coming on board with the project.
I agree with you about me providing comprehensive sketches and information. The wheel sketch was just a quick one to see if I could get this moving, I didn't want to put too much in unless there was a chance of help coming.
I will update with more sketches soon. The forks will have a cover, and there may be a logo on the wheel covers or/and fender. The wheel covers should look applicable to a gas engined Wing or a future electric one (regenerative hub look perhaps).

So we are allowed to suggest how the new Wing should look? If that is so and we are starting with the front wheel, I vote for a built-in ring of fire.
The wheel covers look like those on old cars and trucks, which I like. I think a Honda logo in the middle would be good.

Yes of course suggestions welcome. I have sketched in a ROF, I will leave the look of that to wingnut junior.

Vents in the covers please. Painted or chrome I leave up to you. The same with the tire threads, use you own judgement. Covers on forks as in my latest sketch. I suggest use of curves, like the way bikes were designed in the 70's but still looking modern. Others may suggest something different, we can work together from sketch to model with any suggestions.

Ed, can you send me a larger image with just the two top images from your last one (front & side views)? I could use them for background/references.
by the way,, that wheel reminds me of those little wheels they put on furniture. i suppose you must know what you are doing,, hope it looks different when I make the model.

I kind of like the look of that wheel right now, but look forward to the CG version.

Is there any reason in particular you started with the wheel Ed?
