F-A 37 Strega by fevereon F-A 37 Strega by fevereon
k.. didn't quite know exactly where to upload this since its a 3-d sculpt of a sci-fi game :-/

Anyways, this is the F/A-37 Strega, the main craft you fly in the old Sony space shmup, Philosoma.. i fell for this ship the second i saw it way back when.. so much so, i went and brought the game six months before i got a Playstation :love:..

The project was slated for 2 weeks, but i grossly underestimated it and it wound up taking well over 1 1/2 months... think it was around 280 hours in the woodshop..

It was my first wood sculpture beyond weapons, and if it wasn't for the support of my online friends & peeps, i would've prolly scrapped the project the 4th time i fouled parts up (big special thanks to :gts: , RX, and Ghostwalker, who were there from day 1 and put up with my daily grumbling :frustrated: )

There's a work in progress page here --> [link] with a little timeline thing and a batch of WIP pics ^_^

made of Poplar & Red oak. measures appromimately 26" long

This is the first time I have ever heard of Fevereon and I am totally humiliated by her. I have seen many incredible pieces on Deviant Art and artists of talent beyond belief, but nothing has prepared me for her. Her skill is in a league of it's own. I have seen nothing outside of Hollywood that can match this. What put her over even Hollywood is that it's wood. Wood! My God it is taking every aspect of self control to keep from using expletives in this and I almost never use them.
The detailing is incredible, the paintwork flawless. I can make only one suggestion and it has nothing to to with how to improve it for she is so far above me that I am lucky to be on the same site as her.
My suggestion send pictures of your work to magazines such as Modern Woodworker. I know I shall see you on the cover. I prostrate myself before you. I come to Deviant Art to learn humility and never have I been taught such a lesson.

Wow... I honestly thought this guy was a plastic model and was going to ask where I can get the game/model. But now I'm extremely impressed. This guy is a beauty.

JUST JIZZED

Cant wait tell a game is made that looks like the anamated sequences of philosoma.

For that matter cant wait until humanity overcomes greed and actually build these things for real and explores the universe.

But I guess thats where you come in. Your the BUILD GUY

MAKE ME A SPACE SHIP FEVER

------------ EPIC ----------

Man, I hadn't even thought of Philosoma in ages...

What a beautiful model you've constructed, though. It looks like it was one of those pleasant nightmares to put together. Looking at it I would not have guessed the components to be made of wood!

Great work! To some degree the design of the craft resembles of the Normandy space ship from "Mass Effect" :)
