I started this in February 2003, nearly two 1/2 years later I've (sort of) finished it. I estimate around 250 hours went into this, I've been constantly messing and tweaking it, before starting from scratch with the body a couple of months ago, it's been a test platform really.

Hope y'all like it!

(piccies not 'ere anymore!)

very impressed mate :D great work.

what format is it in ? if you wanted it incorperated into a screensaver or some other kinda graphical demo, I've been contemplating making something like that, where you can customize the car(colours, wheels etc) for your screen saver, but don't have time to make the models. give me a pm!

I have worked with 3D progs before, and even though I consider myself to have a very spacially aware 3D mind, I found it ****ing hard. To make that car is a huge achivement. Very very impressed. Well done mate :)

Now all you have to do is work out how Vaux make it fade and do it various shades of "vauxhall pink" for that really authentic look ;)

Good work though - looks good :beer:
