    Model a High Poly Airframe Missile Launcher in 3ds Max: Part 3Launcher preview 200px
    In this six hour long, intermediate/ advanced level tutorial you will learn to model a high poly RIM-116 Rolling Airframe Missile Launcher step by step. You will learn to use many of 3ds Max's poly and spline modeling tools, while keeping the model as light weight and simplified as possible, and only using subdivision in the areas that require it.Read More…
