Ahoy. The name is Mikom. I do 3D modeling, rendering and just general design. I'm a person who over past few years has taken a great interest in formulating ideas in 3D space. Ideas are my trade in many ways yet I also lean towards the practical. I have worked on several mods and game projects though modeling for games is not my first area of expertise. Here on ModDB/IndieDB I keep an eye on the Humor Satire Parody group, I follow the modding community and watch game productions that have peaked my interest. Feel free to go through my blogs or image gallery if you want to get a glimpse of what I do. As always, have a nice day!

Magazine goes in the back of the rifle

The TM-10 was something I made a few years ago as a real model, I made it out of paper and wood. It was also one of the first 3d models I made (look here) back then it was still really simple. Anyway, now I've rebuilt it and it's looking better than ever.
The grenade launcher is something I didn't have on my orignal model, hehe but it's a nice extra.

I've also had many comments on that it would be impossible to hold it and fire at the same time, I can see why it looks difficult, it's not exactly the standard design for a rifle but it does work. As I said, it's based upon a real model and it is fully possible to hold it and fire. Also the scope may need some adjusting depending on who uses it but that's just details, lol.

What I'm currently working on. I've been very tired lately so not much modeling has happened. I still have to finish an animation project I was working on.
I hope to finish this soon so I can get on with my other projects.

I'll update the image when it's finished.

ALF was an idea I got when I was browsing the web for other pictures of the Flying Tank, on one website I found this old page from a 1930's science magazine which had an airship quite similar to this one. It was supposed to be solar-driven and have a hangar bay and air field where planes could land and refuel. I'm not sure if anyone actually build this thing for real but it was a nice idea to go by. I'm therefore very happy with the result even though the shape is as ugly as a dead baboon on a very warm summer day.

More will come...

Ka-17 "Flying Tank" (Letayushchiĭ Tank)

Here is another monster I've been working on:

Ka-17

Picture This huge monster is a prototype based upon the K-7. The K-7 was created by a Russian engineer called Kalinin, unfortunately, the K-7 crashed and the project was discontinued.

<-- This aircraft is in fact CGI. I think it's made by a group of Russian historians with a great love for large aircraft. However it is probably based upon one of Kalinins blueprints.

What am I working on? don't ask because not even I know for sure...
Lately I've focused more on design instead of modeling for games. This does give me a certain freedom, I don't have to worry much about poly-counts and stuff like that. It also put's some more pressure on how things look and their possible functionality in real life (if that's what you are making anyway).
You might have seen my drill-project already but here are some images:
Drilling Machine Final
Transportation mode
It's not really the most realistic model I hoped to make but it has a certain cold and destructive charm.

It's finished now. Hopefully I'll make more things of this size in the future but for now I'll go back to learning my 3d program better.

I haven't made much these past few weeks so there isn't much to update. Anyway, yesterday I was playing around a little with my 3d program and came up with this:

The 4th wing in an asteroid field

It shows some of my favorite spacecraft flying through an asteroid field. Asteroids, by the way, are quite fun to make and also very easy. You start with an irregular roundish shape and ad loads of craters to it.

I'm also messing around with the M40 X pro A.C.E's (or Asteroid Class Explorer) design. I've made some interesting modifications to the model:

M40 X pro A.C.E Custom Editions
1. Stronger cockpit frame
2. Polarized cockpit window
3. M45 X ACE custom with improved engine system

I'm also working on a spaceship based upon one of iQew's paintings:

...Star Trek. Lately, I have been watching a great amount of Star Trek, StarTrek Voyager, StarTrek DS 9 and StarTrek The Next Generation. This inspired me to make some federation ships of my own. This proved to be harder than I thought, making a ship like that can be most difficult. Ships of that size usually are.

MY Star Trek Starships
From the right: The U.S.S. Aurora, U.S.S. Longhorn, U.S.S. Tridan, U.S.S. warship Athena and the U.S.S. Infinity.

The idea of exploration is one of the greatest aspects of StarTrek. It has much to offer, not only a great science fiction world but also a great look upon human values.
I have also come to think about what makes a person human... is the sentient consciousness or maybe the physical form. It could also be the planet we live on that makes us unique. But perhaps, not so unique. Surely, there must be more intelligent lifeforms in the universe. These questions are not for me to answer. I will have to accept the life and consciousness that has been given me.
StarTrek sometimes makes you re-think the universe as we see it. Maybe there is more out there than a black and empty void.

Report abuse Arctic Adventures, With the SnowTeam - Chapter 2

After being away for almost 2 weeks I finally return to moddb. I have very little updates to show but I did get the chance to make some models. Here is the British Aerospace Harrier:

Chapter Two

6th and 7th of February

16.11 PM One day ago, 6th of February
Dr Teyus entered the room.
- “Alright, I'm here, what is it?” She asked.
- “Let me get straight to the point.” Max said. “At 16.00 PM” We lost contact with Alpha-team who were doing research on the northern snowfields. Their signal just disappeared and their com-radio is dead.”
- “What could have happened to them?” The doctor asked concerned.
- “We don't know yet but we will have a team ready in two hours.”
Alexandra entered the room, she looked at Max.
- “No news from Terrus and Corey. They are still on the drilling platform.”
- “Could it be a simple radio malfunction?” Dr Teyus asked.
- “Eh, no sir. The Communication Systems location beacon we use sends a signal every ten minutes trough our main com-link, if they left their camp it was without the radio or the GPS.
- “Do whatever you can to find them.” Dr Teyus left the room.

18.02 PM

Max looked at the GPS screen in front of him. Nothing.
- “Do you know where their last known location was?” asked Terrus.
- “Yes, right here.” He pointed at the screen. “They were doing research on the ice in that area.”
Corey entered the room.
- “We are ready to go.” She said.
- “Alright, lets not waste time.” Terrus tapped Max on the shoulder. “Don't lose us too.”

18.30 PM
Max was staring at the same screen. Two green dots were slowly moving across the screen. They were Delta-team members Corey and Terrus.
Max tried to focus but his eyes were to tired. He went for a cup of coffee.

19.50 PM

Delta-team reported back to MRC. No luck in finding Alpha-team.
Max was concerned, the storm had made it very difficult to find the missing team and this accident started to look more and more like a catastrophe.

About ten minutes later, Corey and Terrus joined Alexandra and Max in the MRC main observation deck.
-”Something happened out there.” Terrus said looking worried.
-”Yeah, it's not like them to get lost.” Max replied. “Unfortunately we have only 2 hours tomorrow to find them. The MRC is moving to a new location and we need all the hands available.”
Corey looked out into the darkness, she was silent.
-”At least the doctor gave us permission to take out three Snowcrawlers.” Alexandra said hoping to bring some good news.
-”Three?! Corey shouted. “We need at least a whole squadron!” She stood up and walked away.
The others looked at her as she disappeared down the stairs.
-”She has been like that since we came back” Said Terrus.
-”I'll talk to her.” Alexandra said.

06.30 AM, 7th of February

Corey tumbled down the tunnel.
- “Corey!” Alexandra screamed.

- “Come, there is nothing we can do here.” Terrus said.
They climbed up the tunnel and entered the cave. The ground shook once more.
The snow on the floor of the cave started to move. Pieces of rock and ice moved around in circles. Then, after a loud crunching noise, a huge snake-like creature came out of the hole in the floor of the cave. It had huge eyes on either side of its head and fins to move around under the snow.
Alexandra screamed and Terrus started running towards the entrance of the cave.
The creature moved it's long tail in front of it thus blocking the exit.
- “Take a flare!” Terrus shouted towards Alexandra.
She took out a flare and threw it towards the creature. It, spun round and tried to grab the flare with it's gigantic mouth. The tail moved out away from the exit. Alexandra and Terrus started moving towards it. They made it to the entrance and climbed out. The creature now saw them disappearing and howled, it was a terrible sound that made the walls of the cave shake. Then, it slowly moved back through the hole and a creepy silence filled the cave.

Terrus and Alexandra sat down on their Snowcrawlers.
- “How do we get Corey?” Alexandra asked.
- “We could use her location beacon to find her position in the cave system. Then we will have to find another way in. I'll contact Max and tell him what happened.”
He took out the radio from his backpack.

06.55 AM

- “Stop, you are there.” said Max. “She is in the cave below you. There should be nothing but ice covering the hole, be careful.”
- “Alright.” said Terrus. He started digging in the snow.

07.05 AM

Terrus had made a hole in the ice. Alexandra tied a rope around her waste and Terrus slowly lowered her into the cave.
She saw Corey lying on the ground.
- “Are you ok?” she asked. Then she saw the body lying next to Corey. “Oh my god, it's Brian.”
- “Yes.” said Corey. “I don't understand, what happened? Why has he got bite marks all over him?”
- “Come on, let's go.” Alexandra said. “There is something worse here than a freezing temperature and collapsing tunnels.”

I have seen that some people on moddb choose to write stories in their blog, people like [$#!T-Happens] and Wizard_Jytim.
I thought I might start one as well. Mine will be about the SnowTeam. You might have noticed these strange fellas on my profile ;)

These characters seem to fit my story perfectly, or maybe the other way around: These characters fit a story perfectly. It doesn't matter what it is, they will soon visit moddb!

Prologue

18.36 PM
Corey looked out over the white plains ahead of them.
- “How will we ever find them here?” She said to her team mate over the com-system. “Terrus?”
The snowstorm made it harder to see each other so she grabbed hold of the others shoulder. Her team mate looked around.
- “I have no idea, let's go back when we still can” Terrus said. “We will continue the search tomorrow”.

Meanwhile only 20 meters to the right of Corey and Terrus, two white figures where stumbling forward through the snow.
One pulled out a flare and threw it up in the air. The storm carried it further and further on the plains, nobody could have seen it.

Chapter one


19.47 PM

When Corey and Terrus came back, both were cold and tired. They approached the MRC. Lights were shining behind the many windows. They contacted the MRC control over the com-system.
-”This is Delta-team back from recon.” Terrus said “Open the damn door”
-”This is Mobile Research Center Control, welcome back.”
A door opened in front of them, the light shining out was almost blinding after the darkness of the storm. They entered.
A woman in her mid-forties approached them.
-”Did you find them?” she asked.
-”No doctor Teyus.” Terrus replied. “Their last know location was impossible to reach. We will try again tomorrow with the Snowcrawlers.

19.59 PM
Corey and Terrus joined the rest of the Delta-team, Alexandra and Max, in the MRC main observation deck.
-”Something happened out there.” Terrus said looking worried.
-”Yeh, it's not like them to get lost.” Max replied. “Unfortunately we have only 2 hours tomorrow to find them. The MRC is moving to a new location and we need all the hands available.”
Corey looked out into the darkness, she was silent.
-”Atleast the doctor gave us permission to take out three Snowcrawlers.” Alexandra said hoping to bring some good news.
-”Three?! Corey shouted. “We need at least a whole squadron!” She stood up and walked away.
The others looked at her as she disappeared down the stairs.
-”She has been like that since we came back” Said Terrus.
-”I'll talk to her.” Alexandra said.

The next morning 06.00 AM
Corey, Terrus and Alexandra each prepared their Snowcrawlers. Max would operate the GPS system from the MRC to make sure they would not get lost.
The MRC was already full of activity, people preparing to move the half a kilometer long vehicle which was divided in three platforms. The skies had to be cleared of snow and ice and the engines had to warm up. To make sure nothing went wrong, all communications personal were working on coordinating the huge operation.
As Delta-team left the MRC, people were already clearing the fifth ski. They moved along the path they came from the previous day, no tracks were visible anymore and they had to rely on their GPS system and Max to show them the way.

06.20 AM
They arrived at the last know location of the lost team. No signs of activity.
-”They are gone.” Alexandra said. “They probably tried to escape the storm.”
-”No, they would know better than making a run for the MRC. It is to easy to get lost in the storm.” Terrus said. “There must be another reason...”
-”There is a mountain to the south of you” Max said over the Com-system. “Maybe they made to the cave there, I can remember being there three weeks ago. There is a huge cave system, we never explored it all but it should have shielded them from the storm."

06.28 AM
Delta-team arrived at the entrance to the cavern.
-”We will have to continue on foot.” Terrus said. “The Snowcrawlers are not made for rocky surfaces.”
Terrus was the first to enter, the opening was just large enough for a large person to get through. The cave inside was huge though. The walls were covered with ice and it reflected the light so there was always a light source.
-”I guess we won't need these torches then.” Alexandra said. “I'll take them with me anyway. Who knows where we might end up.”
Corey was the last to enter. They moved towards the end of the cave, there was a tunnel there.
At the entrance of the tunnel Corey suddenly stopped.
-”Look!” She said.
She picked up a torch that was lying on the ground.
-”They were here.” Corey said with a voice filled with hope.
They moved down the tunnel.
Suddenly the whole tunnel shook and pieces of rock came tumbling down. Alexandra ducked and a rock the size of her fist moved inches past her head.
-”What was that?” She asked.
-”That was our exit sign. Let's go.” Terrus said and started moving back up the tunnel.
-”Where are you going?” Corey said. “We have not found them yet, we can't give up now.”
-”I hate to say it but Terrus is right. It's to dangerous here.” Alexandra said. She also started walking back up the tunnel.
-”No!” Said Corey.
She walked a bit further down, the cave shook again.
-”Corey!” Alexandra screamed.
Corey slipped and started tumbling further down the tunnel. She landed on the hard rock floor, then everything went black.

Unknown time
Corey opened her eyes. She was in the cave, this she remembered.
-”Hello?”
She looked around, the passage to the tunnel was blocked. Then, she noticed the body next to her. She screamed but was unable to move. When she calmed down, she looked closer, it was Brian. Brian was the leader of Alpha-team, there were bite marks on his arms and legs. Corey looked at them, she had a growing pain in her body. Then she saw some snow falling down from above. More light shined into the cave and a figure lowered itself down. It was Alexandra.
-”Are you ok?” she asked. Then she looked at the body. “Oh my god, it's Brian.”
-”Yes.” said Corey. “I don't understand, what happened? Why has he got bite marks all over him?”
-”Come on, let's go.” Alexandra said. “There is something worse here than a freezing temperature and collapsing tunnels.”
