Vostok-1 descent module texturing

Being preoccupied with daily tasks, I took a large break in updates on this project. Texturing of the Vostok-1 descent module outer surface took a lot of my energy as well. However new version of descent module model surface is more historically accurate. I also hope to improve visual realism of the “Спускаемый аппарат” model.

Instrument panel from Vostok spacecraft

Instrument panel

The most recent version of the ПУ-1-3КА instrument panel 3d model. There is minor texture distortion and no factory label. Also light indicators differs from the original.

The model of ПУ-1-3КА has been created during project’s early stages. Continue reading

Extensive improvements of the “Vostok” spacecraft models

Early version of Yuri Gagarin 3d model

Early version of Yuri Gagarin 3d model, to be improved.

A lot of my ideas about composition and purpose of several parts of the “Vostok” spacecraft was incorrect. In earlier times I also were discovering inaccuracies and correcting them. However this time I’ll rework a lot. Continue reading

New edition of the radio reciever model

Test render of the radio reciever model of Vostok spacecraft.

I’ve updated model of the radio. I’ll try to describe this device later, cause I’m in tight scedule finishing the spacecraft interior model.

Coming reworking of ejection seat model


There is some job to do to improve ejection seat model. Earlier version of this part is done in a hurry and in conditions of information overflow. If working on such project one isn’t fast enough he doomed to die of an old age before project completion.
It turns out that second parachute of cosmonaut is situated under Continue reading

The first post: work in progress.

Work in progress on interior of "Vostok-1" Spaceship, april 16 '2012, Lightwave 3D screenshot.

One more day passed away too qickly. Work towards improvement of brand new look of “Vostok-1″ spaceship’s interior goes on. Fabric surfaces was completely reworked. A lot of relief elements added in accordance with documentary photos.
