Sketch Up Explode

For one of our ‘Craft and Media Technologies’ lessons, we were taught how to use the explode feature within ‘Sketch up’. We were asked to create a one man aircraft using different models from the 3D model store in Sketch up. I started off with a simple ‘Honda’ motorbike, but I couldn’t edit it, so I was told to use the explode feature which breaks the model down into smaller pieces so you can work with it. After getting rid of some pieces of the bike like the wheels, I searched for a monster truck model and “exploded” it, and used the four wheels from it. Then I searched for a fighter plane and grabbed the wings and jet engine from it and added it to my ‘one man aircraft’, and then finally I searched for a blue fire to use as a flame coming out of the jet engine.

I thought this aircraft could be used in a vehicle fighting game like “Twisted Metal” (Playstation) or maybe the old “Cel Damage” game (PS2, GameCube, Xbox). I say this because these games have vehicles like the one I created, which have over the top weapons and look a bit crazy.
