Biplane with Blender and Cycles

Did this yesterday in a few hrs using Blender and the new realtime renderer Cycles.
Having the renderer working while i modelled was amazing.. i could see what i'd just modelled displayed in full GI(global Illumination) within seconds of having modelled it! final render was done with 200passes.

for more on Cycles and how to get it, see my last post about Blender you'll find a quick "how to" on setting it up and using it.

and heres a hi-speed partial recording of how i built the model, and what fun it is to watch it rendered in the viewport as you model.

Cycles has been a part of Blender for a while now, just download the regular Blender build and start using it :)
