Vehicle: BMW Isetta 250 (old car)

Hi all

Here My latest work. I just finished to model a BMW Isetta 250 for a short movie I'm making.

I've used Lightwave WITHOUT gi and hdri.

So: what you think about it?

And here the wire

I like the fact that you've modeled a "different" type of car. There are so many sports car models out there. (don't get me wrong, I like sports car mode.s) But your model is a breath of fresh air.

Nice model. I would like to see what it looks like in an environment though. With only a grey envoronment I belive that some of the details are hard to see. I think your licence plate needs a texture too. It is a little bland with out one. How about a little rust or a small dent here and there. (It is an Old car.)

This car reminds me of the one in the movie "Brazil."
Nice work.

How cool. It's the Urkle mobile.

It does need to be put into some type of environment even if it's just a showroom stage.

hey, that looks excellent. I agree with all of the previous comments and I'm glad you got the front page with this. There definitely needs to be a bit more texture-vibe going on, though. Just as Ed said, though.. I can't see anything else.

As Edharriss said, I liked you choose a unique model of car.

I don't know about your short. So I don't know this car is fit to your project or not. The Car's shape looks like fit to Cartooney style. However you also have kind of detail, for example back opening-door part. ( Of course, it's not high detail, either ).

But, The model as it stands, looks sweet.

Also I just search the internet the real model of car.
Here Well, I assume that there's few diffrent type of Bmw Isetta250. But, If I compare with this picture. I think your texture and surface are a bit off.

But, once again..I don't what your short gonna be. That's why I don't think I can comment on it in your short.
BE CooL~*

Your such a show off. It's hard to beat Lightwaves wonderful raytracing engine. That's one beautiful modeling, texturing and rendering job.

yow,Cool design

Lovely looking design and images. Don't know much about the car but I take it that its real. I like yellow cars. Where did you get the reference images from. And finally did you do blendshape or rig the roof to collapse?
See some of my work here!

ahh this is so cool. I second edharris, I am kind of tired of all the superb sports cars, this really is a fresh breeze.

  01 January 2004
I like it a lot, especially as it has a bit of a toon type look to it. Almost real but not real. Well done.
