Why hasn't anyone replied to this thread yet??

it's an absolute awesome model!! no crits from me :thumbsup:

could you do a render of the inside.. because i'd love to see how detailed you got with it...

by the way... what software did you use, and how long did it take you to model it?

I particularly like the paint job... it's reflective enough and it's got the silky metallic finish that sooo many other people cannot achieve... Good work :beer:

Those curvy cars are very difficult to model yes. This one here if anything is closer to perfect. i think the rear needs a little more bend to it. Other than that it's nice.

This model is very slick, clean, and accurate, but the render could use some work. Might I suggest HDRI reflections and lighting (that's my solution to everything :p )?

I would agree. A little HDRI would really finish the model. It will bring the car out of "Toy-Land", and put it into that "I-can't-tell-if-its-a-photo-or-not" category. Great stuff Maxts.

the fog lights are pointing to the side instead of straight ahead.

It's a nice model, but I have to object a little bit when everyone says it's accurate ;) I think has a slight caricature look to it. A little bit to edgy, and bulky at the same time. It lacks the slim but powerful, flowing lines of the real world car. Biggest problem seems to be at the rear. Some good ref images:







This being my first post here, I realize I'm sounding a little whiny :shame: I'm working on a porsche model so you can all whine back at me later :p

ok after looking at the reference photos submitted I can say its not perfect, but its about as perfect as is humanly possible.. good enough for government work I always say :p

06-27-2003, 06:01 PM
Very good but I do have some crits.. nothing terrible.
The whole car looks a little oddly proportioned in that it looks slightly not quite wide enough loosing some of the Vanquish's elegance.
The chrome trim around the roof and boot looks too thick.
Wheels would show the discs behind the trims and the spokes of the trims are not reading as deep as they should
'Haunches' at the rear above the rear wheels look rounder on the photos I've seen.
Have another look at the base of the pillars of the windscreen on your reference
No windscreen wipers.
Just a bit further and it's top rate. :) :beer: :beer: Nazdarovia

I think, is looked good without HDRI :)

I'm with cwikdahl on this, decent attempt but it looks nothing like the real thing. My boss has one of these and I walk past it every day in the car park.

Have a look at the reference pics. Have a stiff drink and dive back into your 3d package.
