View Full Version : Tamiya R/C Car Projects

Heya everyone :wave:
I've been working on these two r/c cars for quite a while now, so i thought i'll post them and hopefully get some crits :)
I own both these cars, i use to race allot in my younger youth :shy:
The first car is on a old TAO3R chassis.. cant remember exactly what chassis the second car is on.
Both cars are four-wheel-drive belt driven.. i still need to do some scaling on some parts to get it exact.
Modelled in 3dsmax7 and Clay-Rendered in Vray
I hope you guys like them... :cool:

wow very nice, great detail
would look awesome with a
maxwell render. will you be
modeling the bodys?

thanks evil-98 :)
ive been asked a couple of times if im going to create bodies for them.. im still undecided, but tempted tho
ive got no experience with modelling cars at all.. so it would be a nice experience.
i just want to thank Mayhemation if he reads this, he's tuts on creating rim's and thread helped me allot :)

That is completely sick!
Great detail man, I am amazed.

heh, thanks allot megadave2002 :shy:
i dug around and i found two oldish test renders i made to doublecheck cabling/scaling etc.. :haha:

Wow very nice modeling great detail, nice renders aswell, would you mind sharing the settings and saying what lights you using in Vray to get that render please? I am losing a lot of detail from my models when rendering with Vray :(

Hey moondog_rsa :wave:
i agree with other guys about the detail work, and i think you definitly should do the bodys also...
will be waiting the body updates :smug: .............
15-03-2006, 12:34 AM
and can we see the wire also!!!
15-03-2006, 12:53 AM
great work mate
Really crisp and clean modeling and rendering.
My only crit, and a minor one, is the stretched front tires serving as back tires on the first image. The attention to detail is stunning. As for modeling the body might be ok to improve your skills on bodyshell modeling; these models as-is stand for themselves. Are you planning to texture them?

wow, great progress man i like them so much! the detai is awsome, and as the others said, you should try modelling the body, keep updating!

Greetings everyone :wave:
thanks allot for all your comments! i didnt expect so much positive feedback :shy: been quite busy today, but i managed to spend some time on textures. I'm very bad at texturing so be warned :hurt:
I've got quite a couple of images so ill split this post in two parts..
Below is a render I made to test some textures and lighting, its just a quick render(low quality) so its a lil grainy :hmm: sorry about that, ill post a better one soon!
15-03-2006, 06:38 AM
here's the rest of the images..
a wireframe/faced, couple of photo's and a "clay render" setup as requested. :) I'm not that great with Vray tho, Brazil is actually the love of my life, but ive been using it quite a bit lately to improve my rendering skillz.. ;)
I think if im going to create a body for it, ill go with the Merc-CLK-GTR body.
I love that car, looks very slick :evil:
15-03-2006, 07:42 PM
Great so far...So detailed..but...IMO, maybe the proportion of the wheels are wrong...
Anyway I'm waiting for updates...
thats verry good m8 verry good
15-03-2006, 08:28 PM
wow, really nice detail! :D
16-03-2006, 12:19 AM
Thanks for posting those setting mate, cant wait to see the shell of the car :haha:
16-03-2006, 09:02 AM
thanks for the comments :)
madm4tt: ye, theres still a couple of scaling issues i need to work out, will get on it asap :haha:
Here is just a small update/test with textures applied. not very good with textures tho :dunno:
16-03-2006, 10:00 AM
not bad, i think the cf or graphite whatever it is should be glossy
everything else looks pretty cool. anything annodized should have
a higher IOR and i think most of the plastic should also be glossy
looking forward to updates
16-03-2006, 10:16 AM
Absolutly excellent! Great job! Lots of details! 5 stars!
17-03-2006, 01:09 AM
evil-98: thanks for the advise evil-98, at the moment i have no anodized textures applied to the model, but im thinking of making the rims anodized instead of a alluminium/steel effect. I think i may be losing glossy effects because of the lighting setup, but as i said, im not very good with vray. I'll do some material testing as soon I get some time again. :haha:
Kiss Csaba: heh, thanks for the stars :) But I doubt that my scene is really worth any starts tho :shy:
Here's the light and mat setups i had for the previous rendered scene, any crits/help would be appreciated :)

As everyone else has said, a really impressive level of detail.
The saddle pack batteries on your first render appear to be floating above the holes in the chassis rather than sitting in them
The tyre texture in your latest render looks stretched on the rear wheels
Look forward to seeing renders in the future

Pretty Nice work.
I love the TA-03 it's an awsome chassis I had alot of fun with mine but I had the one with the motor in the front of the car. you should check out my Mini-T. It's in the WIP section as well first page.

Very nice work but, auh, where is the belt for the four wheel drive?
