Another Sub-D (Sub-patch / NURBs) comparison example.

This is the basic hull of a MK-VIII SEAL Delivery Vehicle; I threw it together last night to practice with a couple of tools I've let gather dust, and it came together remarkably fast. All of it is sub-divisional modeling and all polys are quads. There are 666 (Yikes!) of them. If this were a hard surface model, this section would have thousands of polygons.

This is a MK-VIII I built in Dec (a little further along with a detailed interior) using hard surface modeling; It has 477,000 polys! Once the technique is learned, a Sub-D model can be built faster with far less polys.

Back to the forward (Control) sphere "cockpit."

A rough layout is constructed before modeling individual panels. The center-mounted periscope dominates the shelf panel, so I built that first to aid in keeping the surrounding objects in scale as I compare the view with reference photos.

Front panel complete. The shelf panel is next.
