Aircraft Carrier CVN76 USS Ronald Reagan 3D model
One of the first very high resolution models of the Aircraft Carrier, CVN-76, the U.S.S. Reagan. The cutaway has been removed on this model but you will get everything that can be seen externally on the ship (plus the hangar bay). The model was completed from plans and has some upgrades over the previous versions. This model was designed for high resolution print (appearing in Maxim Magazine and Popular Mechanics) but has separate layers and pivots for many of the moving/animatable parts. The model comes with deck equipment including: deckcrane, bomb carts and forklifts. It also comes with medium resolution 'ready' and 'stowed' versions of the F18 which are moveable but non-poseable. Only the F18C is included. These were intended to be cloned to produce a full deck complement.
*Note: this model now contains a complement of deck aircraft - F35C (gear up and gear down LWO, OBJ, FBX), F18E (gear up and gear down LWO, OBJ, FBX), F18F (gear up and gear down LWO, OBJ, FBX) as well as the stowed and ready F18C. It also now contains a more complete selection of deck handling equipment including: 4 tow carts, huffer cart, deck crane, forklift, bomb carts and a selection of wing missiles.
This is the outer external model of the aircraft carrier suitable for visualizing and rendering images of the externals. A cutaway version is available that includes interior deck detail.
The model was designed for high resolution print. Full texture maps are included (including illumination maps and perimeter lighting for night operations) and UV maps should now import directly into 3DS as well.
Elevators, F18s, deck equipment, Sparrow and RAM positions, blast deflectors as well as all major components of the ship are on separate layers for easy animation or for reducing poly count if you don't see them in your image.
An OBJ version of the model is now included. The model is very large and the .obj model had to be partitioned but should load various parts of the whole ship into position. Logical items are split into 'parts' and 'surfaces' for selection and animation. Reference images were only rendered to 400 x 400 pixels at the time this was produced.
The model was created on Lightwave 11.6.3 to insure loading in Lightwave 2015 and 2019. OBJ and FBX versions of the models are included.
