Making of H.M.C.S Snowberry by Jacques Cleghorn (AKA `silver_shadow´)
I was always fascinated by the way some people built everything in models in such detail and decided to start the ‘ Candy’ series, trying to emulate them, but by only using Sketchup with no other external applications for modeling. This tutorial is a quick overview of ‘Eye Candy 3′ The H.M.C.S. Snowberry. I go through some tools that I used and how some of it was built. All the plug-ins used in this tutorial are widely available on SketchUp sites and forums.
