S.H.I.E.L.D Helicarrier Cutaway

I was asked to create a cutaway of the Helicarrier for the Ultimate Book of Marvel. Marvel supplied a simple black and white drawing of a front and side view of the craft.

My task was to model up the entire craft using reference from comics and back stories, after that invent machinery and a layout that could make the war craft fly!

One of the difficulties I had to overcome was due to the detail it was hard to distinguish the separate decks clearly, the use of strong colour being reflected down worked well.

S.H.I.E.L.D Helicarrier Cutaway, with a crew up to 1000 and an operating speed of 35Mph (56Kph) it is a huge air craft.
