Great images and subject matter. Did you design a lot of the models yourself or did you have reference material to work from? If you found a good source of reference material, where? The models look so appropriate yet they have that "other reality" look about them. I especally like the crane with "nose art" Animation looks very good.

Dude your work is absolutely bucking friljant !!!
I dream of doing this kind of stuff for years, but somehow there's just not enough time to do it. And getting together a team of people to work on something like this is even harder.
So for you.

I don't want to speak for Alessandro, but I'm happy that his great models got so much positive feedback.
That's quite funny, because I've ask for him to do some of the models that will be used inside "Code Guardian", but without thinking how much detail and attention he would eventually put in doing that. Sometimes even too much detail, considering the final purpose
Infact, you can actually appreciate those in the still pictures, more than in the final movie!!!
By the way, it's a real pleasure for me to work with him at this new project, other 2 artists are working hard on the same project, and they're producing a lot of good stuff. I hope I will be able to show more of "Code Guardian" soon.

I haven't read the later pages, so I don't know if anyone said anything similar... Great models, great textures, but the grain has got to go!!! That was my main problem with Starwars Episode II, instead of working more on the lighting, they just threw on some noise to make it look more realistic. I'm not saying your's doesn't look realistic, it's just that better light is far more important than grain in post! Have you had a chance to look at Final Render for Max? that's some damn good plug-in!!!

Wow how many positive feedbacks, i will try to reply in order...
Kaiser_Sose: Kaiser, there`s really not much to tell about my texturing tecnique in this case.I have to be honest, most of the textures i made are photos retouched and adapted to my models, anybody with a good knowledge of applications like Photoshop can produce them.I think that the abilities in this cases consist in giving the whole model a general "appropriate and good looking" feeling chosing the right colors and the right lighting.So it is really important observation and reference pictures of real machines.
Anyway here is a small sample of textures used for these models...the pictures are quite resized (the original tarpaulin texture of the truck is 1280 in width)
I know, this could not be of much help...but actually i haven`t really the time to write something more exhaustive, maybe later in the future, ok ?
mikewebb : Well, about the references Marco Spitoni - CEE GEE gave me some small pictures from the net to take as references about the general looking the models should have, not much detailed pictures because ,as he already said ,these modes should not really be much detailed.
Here`s a pair of them:
eunuchbot : I think that u are talking about the grain in the first picture, ... it`s a post effect i wanted to apply in Photoshop after rendering the scene with the default scanline in Max, so it`s not a lack of sampling of some GI render engine
