1913 Model T Racer
« on: March 17, 2012, 08:34:24 pm »
Here is another great model from Bill Gould. Model can be found at Turbo Squid.
I picture this car racing down at Daytona with sand flying everywhere.
Still working on getting a person in the car so that Daytona image will have to wait until that is done first.

Enjoy

Really nice lightning! How did you make the nice sharp shadow?

Thanks glad you like it.
As far as the hard shadows it's all about the HDRI you use. Also if you turn up the contrast on theenvironmentt your shadows will get darker and sharper.

Nice, Tim!  I've always liked this racer, with the "streamlined" Livingstone radiator and grill.  Really a speed demon!  I notice that the paint has a roughness to it, kind of like a cast or powder coated finish.  They were always really smmoth and shiny, in that they used enamel paint, usually "flow sprayed' on, then rubbed out.  I sure wish there was a decent SW figure available!  I've tried, and it's really tough modeling in SolidWorks.

Hi Bill,
Well what I wanted to do was just put a tiny bit of texture but as you see it was too much. I'm rendering it again as I type with no texture so it can be smooth as a baby's butt.

Updated image. Fixed paint and changed the type.

Perfect as always!  The color is spot on for a popular one that was not quite red and not quite orange.  It was often used with yellow-ochre trim.  LOVE IT!
