Damn, its sort of epic that no plugis are used. The model part is possible, but plugins will make it so much easier. Well done man!
Do you have higher res images?
PS do you have some tips on how to model the more complex parts like the engine and all of the motor parts. Ive have made a start 2-3 years with my first car model and was a bit “done” with it and moved on. I want to pick it up again in near future, but making the engine and all the more difficult object shapes keep me wondering how to approach such items.
Thank you for your comments! We do as hard as possible to model without plugins, we like plugins, but our CEO and founder told us to stay the most original possible to the program for marketing reasons and customer support in a near future. By the way, we are interested to hear what plugins you recommend to share it to the community on automotive modelling!
You got an incredible project right here! but here’s something to notice… we do not model the “full” engine, we only do what the eye can see (that’s why we spent almost a month) making the full engine, with the pistons, the cables, the transmission, the gear-clutch, etc is a heavy duty work that takes a lot of time and is a very difficult thing to get reference. We work trying to sell this models, so we have some time restricted for this situation.
You’ll see on upcoming images that the engine is more a mid-poly work, with no Subsurf or modifiers to make the file lightweight. Our advice in your case is to take your time and begin model in the most simple possible way. Later on, if you like, you can add more details, but we recommend you to start by simple, then adding all the details you like.
Hope these words help you on your project! We would be pleased to hear more and see how it’s going that Shelby
