Very nice, I can’t really comment on the accuracy of the mechanics but it seems very believable.

mpan3: thanks for the comments. the mechanics probably arent realistic but im not going for that, just doing some modeling to get my skills up :slight_smile:

here is another update:

tried something diffrent here, i rendered a .tga out with not mats or AO and painted the colours on in PS. took some time (and its still not done) but i like the way its coming out. C+C welcome :slight_smile:

i could do this in blender but i want to expirment with diffrent stuff in PS and also i can add dirt, rust and other layers really quickly :slight_smile:
