Great White
About this creation
Great White is the sprinter of the King International versatile combat/rescue mecha fleet. Designed to get in and out quickly, his lighter frame and longer more agile limbs, mean its often in and out before the other units have taken off.

Specialises in reconnaissance, when a rescue takes place in a hostile area, you often need Great White on hand to spot trouble before it starts.

Frequently piloted by Rex King himself, but when Big Red and Great White are needed for the same mission, Rex's cousin Regina Prince takes up the reigns.

Quoting Daniel Brilliant A really beautiful design. Also, thanks for you comments and explanation of the POV conversion. I'm really excited to use this for my models. I think that the screen shots will really shine once converted.
How are you getting on with POV RAY?

Quoting David Roberts I've done this with LDD, LDD to POV Convertor and POV Ray (the latest version). My laptop is 5 years old and took over six hours to render it! Hang on in there, the results can be good! http://www.mocpages.com/image_zoom.php?mocid=345979&id=/user_images/90763/1355956532m
I'm still playing with the settings, but I've managed to cut the rendering time down to minutes rather than hours. Just adjust the quality on the rendering page to 8 or 9 rather than the default 12, adjust the output size to roughly half the default and if necessary adjust the depth from 3 (default) to 2. Do all that can you can render something pretty groovy in about 15 minutes max. plus if you have a studless design you can adjust the model level of detail from 4 to 2 or 3 without any significant difference in output quality. Suggestions: Play with the camera settings in LDD before saving the file, you don't get much in the way of camera control in the conversion tool. never use 100% on the lights, the results look really washed out. Also I'd stick with the white light unless you want mood lighting. You may need to add the camera light because some models have a lot of shadow. fiddle with the output size. some models have a lot of empty space around them, it helps speed up the rendering process and means less cropping of the png file later.

The red white and blue - patriotic colours for the USA and UK. I really like these especially as the are all subtly different. Really like the leg design of the white one

Quoting David Roberts Great looking mechs. I like how they're not very bulky but the joints look strong and would work in real Lego giving good poseability. I've just starting experimenting with POV Ray to render LDD creations. Have you any experience of this at all?
No David I haven't, as you can tell from my current crop of images I'm still rendering using LDD. However, I googled for POV Ray & LDD and found this article that may be helpful: http://stillplayswithbricks.blogspot.com.es/2012/11/ldd-to-pov-ray-converter.html as my old laptop is on life support I'm concerned about adding more freeware to it than I need to, but my whizzy new laptop might be a high enough spec to handle both POV and the specialist conversion tools, so I may give it a go. EDIT: I've now downloaded the beta version of pov ray 3.7 and the ldd converter. You DO need both, the converter doesn't work with the 3.6 version (trust me I tried for hours to figure it out). My graphics chip is quite small, so the rendering process is slllllow, I'm currently rendering "big Blue" but it has taken me 10 minutes so far and I've got just a huge bunch of pixels. Obviously there are settings that would use up less memory to render an image but I need to play (or find a nice straight forward tutorial).

Looking good. Now give him a huge bazooka and attached Rocket launchers!
