View Full Version : Cobra Revisited
Since I see so many other cobras i figure i might as well go and finish mine...
This body was more recent than my other models and its my best so far. Most of these details were imported from my other model, but fixed up a little. One thing that i see now is that the windshield needs another cut in it to follow the body more smoothly. I think this might be the cobra that i complete for once :)

yeah i notice the windshield not conforming to the car, but other than that great job so far. Looks great!
hey guys, slowly but surely (?) adding some more details. im working on the treads, but they are so many polys. i know i have to fix the tread so that the water well connects better.. but is there a way to dummy an object but still have it in the render? To have to copy this tread will really bog down my system. I would like to know if i could make one wheel, then group it and place a dummy and have it render, without it actually showing any polys in the viewport. This would be really appreciated... thanks to anyone that can help. Ill do another render of the front as well. Had to lighten this render up a little. This tread was made using the daniel buck tutorial.

Nice hussle, That Cobra is looking sweet.
Keep up the hard work. This could possiable posted on the front pages of 3d total.
Hi sarn! Great work so far! About the wheels, I guess you could copy them and hide them all and set in the rendering tab render hidden objects:)
But, everytime you unhide everything u unhide the wheels aswell:)

nice car....and for the treads if you go to the list where you hide things in....if you keep going down you can see check boxes...one of them should be called ...display as box....if you select your treads then click the ....display as box thing....your treads should turn into boxes and will help your system out ....i hoped i helped you out! :D
thanks sickcivic i found that and it helps a lot :) i appreciate it a bunch! turns out that the windshield is curved a tiny bit at the top, gotta do the rubber sealing for the trunk, forget any sealing for the doors though... who opens doors? ill have a shot of just the wheel too. then ill have to make some more details, very simple axles... then an engine. ill probably use Andy's cobra dashboard for a reference because i pretty much like how its all laid out.
heres the wheeeeeeeeeeeeel

looking great sarn :D should put your meshsmooth on 3 on the body of the car and stuff for closeups :D will give it a smoother better look... but great detail on the engine and hood seal :D
hehe thanks scott :) the engine took me a while even though some of the details are still bs'd lol. yeah i see the jaggedness on the corners of the hood as well, i think i will pump it to 3 iterations i hope my machine can handle it :) just for closeups. i still have to weld the two body halves together lol. quite a bit of work to do still.. more updates will come but i think im done today lol

hehe ..... use symmetry... no welding to be done..... look at my alfa romeo and my lamborghini murcielago..... those both had symmetry :D it auto welds it.... but on some things, you will have to move the pivot point :D
yeah i would but i chamfered the car with a value of .01 lol so it will probably weld the ones that i dont want it to =/ anyways im bored so i guess thatll be the last thing that i do tonight lol.

Thar's a sweet ride. Your renders are always looking damn fine :) .
hey guys, finally found some place where i could host larger images, though i dont think that you can remote link to them.. Anyways, ive done a bit of work on it, and its almost done. Comments are always appreciated, and i cant wait to do a scene for this thing. It's in the "Cobra" section. Go figure :p
