I'm currently modeling a few of my FSE airports for X-Plane, and I thought I might share some of my progress and hopefully get some criticism, insight, tips, tricks, whatever from you guys. First thing I made was a little sign to hang on my hanger wall shown here

Then I was  doing some research trying to decide what to attempt to tackle next when I found this cool sign

and decided that it would be next, so here's where I am as of right now

I still need to add a few more place marks, get them fine tuned into the correct direction and retuxture, i just slapped this texture on to check my progress. I'm also thinking to make them slightly animated where a few could wobble with a breeze or something fun like that. I'll post my progress on this project as I go. Thanks for any insight any of you may be able to provide.

Nice, always interesting modeling. Nice work!

For anyone interested and unaware, here is a tip I have learned over the years. I find the difficult part is poly count and how to keep them as low as possible. Having your multiple pieces, where at all possible, not touching one another will help. Like the sign here for example, if you don't make the parts intersect/touch and just put them as close as possible, there will not be as many cuts/faces during render and in turn it generates less poly count. Ever notice how if you look really close there are sometimes very small gaps between parts of a model? Thats why. Experiment.

Great hobby!
