hmcs vancouver - 3d model:

Project Started: October 2003
Completed: October 2003

The 3D model of the HMCS Vancouver was the first 3D ship model I ever created. It was a big learning process for me and I came out of the project with a new understanding on how I was to create the Viribus Unitis model. This model contains many flaws, but it is nice to look back and see how far I have come. The project was initiated by my brother Colin Wilkie who needed a ship for his one of his projects. It is a simple low polygon model.

HMCS VANCOUVER is the second of twelve HALIFAX Class Frigates built under the Canadian Patrol Frigate Program. One of the most advanced warships in the world, it was designed primarily as a general purpose frigate, carrying extensive anti-submarine, anti-surface and anti-air defenses systems. In peacetime, HMCS VANCOUVER is capable of employing state-of-the-art technology to carry out a variety of important missions, assigned according to its state of readiness, High or Normal, by Commander Canadian Fleet Pacific. Such missions may include lengthy deployments, Task Group Exercises, Search and Rescue, or Fisheries and Sovereignty patrols. Notwithstanding, no matter what the mission, VANCOUVER is always preparing its teams for the simplest to most complex of scenarios.
