Hey, maybe I'm very dumb and all that, but how can two cars qualify as being your first modelled car. Obviously one would has to be the second. Ill have a look for my first car.

Anyhoo, here's mine (its not really my first, but it's the first that was actually finished. Although I dont quite consider it finished...Ah well.)

05 May 2004, 10:05 PM
hehe Supervlieg only for explain.... first car was modeled a classic concept car and second was first f1.


05 May 2004, 10:09 PM
First and only car so far;)

05 May 2004, 10:44 PM
I don't have anything left of my first few vehicle models, but they were horrible :)

I can remember trying to boolean out the wheel wells, and doing all kinds of crazy stuff :surprised ahh... that was a long time ago! :cool: (Max 3.0 I believe)

yep, I agree! My first models sucked real bad! :shrug:

05 May 2004, 01:00 AM

Very nice cars you have there!

My first model was a very boxy hand.. I'm not going to show it anyway! This is my first car and my second model.. And this time I've found the Meshmoothing modifier! My own concept, no refs here!

Original design, frontpage please! ;)

Modeled in 3dsmax 4

05 May 2004, 04:26 AM
This is my first and only car model thus far. I plan on doing much more with it. Want to clean it up a lot and add the engine/trunk and redo the shader etc. Anyways, neat thread and good work everyone!

05 May 2004, 08:47 AM
Ok, here is my first nurbs car done in maya 5. It took me almost a month to do it but I am happy with the way it turned out considering that is is my first car and that I have been using Maya for about 8 months.
Is was modeled on a mac that is way it looks dark on a PC display.
My first post also, bare with me, how do you post more then one picture in your reply?

05 May 2004, 02:00 PM
This isn't my first attempt, but it's the car who is most finished, even if it's a lot of things left.

I haven't finished a single car... but i'm working on an Audi S1 Grp. B car now, and i SHALL be finished!! :)

Maybe they start to do cars when they all ready knew how to use 3d software and had some experience. I have been on 3d for 5 years or more and I have never made a car.;)

I like more spaceships

Here is another try to post my image in this reply. This is my second reply here and I am not sure how to upload images so that they appear here.
I think it is better if I leave my URL:

First car done in Maya 5 with nurbs.
