I’ve been working on this off and on for a couple of weeks. I think it is finally getting to the point where I have something worth showing off
I am going for a fairly detailed early VW Bus (1953 or so). I suppose the biggest thing in modelling it will be to figure out how detailed is too detailed. So far, I have modelled the engine and cargo compartment vents, semaphore pockets, defroster vents for the front windows and a lip that goes around the headlight pockets. Each of the above renders took about 5 minutes to render (on my 700Mhz Duron) and has close to 61000 vertices.
The next step is working on a front door. I have one (on another layer) but it needs some more work to make it look good. There is a whole bunch of stuff to do after that, but that is the next big task ahead.
Let me know what you think. C&C’s welcome.
