View Full Version : Honda Prelude Vti-R
03-02-2004, 05:48 PM
This is my first real attempt at a car.
I don't know why I decided to start on a new project with SO many others going, (Like the UDR1000 project - HUGE!), I guess I was just bored.
I decided to model my own car. A 1998 Honda Prelude Vti-R.
Of course, I will add on some other stuff!!
Crits / comments would be great.

Thanks for the comment guys.
I'm usin Max 5.
Might be a while before I update, I got the message thingy...
"This application has made an error, and will now close" or something like that, and the recovered version is ****ed. So I have to remodel the lights and windscreen, as well as any tweaking i done in the meantime. Stay tuned!

still working on exterior.....
21-03-2004, 07:53 AM
wow....nice render man...

I've been trying to model this bonnet spoiler without too much success...
Anyone got some tips???
21-03-2004, 07:12 PM
looking good. I have a 98 sh myself but no blueprints to start setting it up.
what are your main areas of problem with the spoiler?
21-03-2004, 10:33 PM
I found that when I had problems modelling a part of a car, the answer was to model it as a seperate object. :) Maybe just start with a plane from the top view and extrude down?
21-03-2004, 11:54 PM
I find the main problem is that I cant get it to look right :eek:
But I'll keep working at it.
Fugitive: I got my blueprints from www.onnovanbraam.com

Think I nailed it.....

and back view.
Does anybody have some good tips on modelling/texturing the rear lights??? They just look crap at the moment.
Dont worry about the paint & chrome just yet, they're just experiments.
hey honki, thats a great looking model you got htere :) The paint looks funky lol. The hood spoiler looks right on, and sorry i cant offer any suggestions on the taillights. Thats some nice big exhaust :) looking forward to updates!
Actually, from the last render with the paint, the spoiler doesn't look totally right on.. Just a nitpick, but as I understand from the picture of the real car, the spoiler isn't welded to the hood and the part in the red circle on my picture shouldn't be connected to the hood..

looks good bro! but i missed the second page :p, nice modelling skill :) but is that the one on your car? coz ive never seen a spoiler like that before :p
22-03-2004, 11:44 PM
The spoiler is actually a seperate object, I just messed up the alignment a bit. But no, that is not my car in the photo. It is just a reference pic I got off the net.
I got one on my car too. I don't really know what practical purpose it serves, other than to look cool.!

Nice modeling. Haha, messing with the textures and renders this early you will never get done. They look really good all the same.
25-03-2004, 12:10 PM
I think your right mate!!! My computer goes stupid before the project is even opened!
Well anyway, I think the exterior is finally done.
A little bit more texture work, & I gotta add windscreen wipers.
I added on some riceboy decals too...
More to come. (SLOOOWWWW Rendering!)

Any chance at getting the blue prints that you used? By the way, great work! :dance:

hey just curious if you could hook me up with the textural settings for the tail pipes and the rubbed stuff around windows... can't seem to get em to look right... thnx man

leave the front wing off. I think it looks silly. I like these cars alot, but some people just go too far with them. remember, less is more in cases like this (with most cars). Granted, I understand that there may be one or two preludes that need a spoiler (front, rear, or both), but generally speaking they dont simply becuase they dont have the HP or torque to require such down force. A wing /spoiler will only yeild negligable results until you get above 90 mph and chances of that ahppening in a 1/4 mile are slim unless it is turboed or running a 125 shot of nitrous.
here is an example of what I mean by "simple" in terms of import tuning.
