Photo Modelling Challenge #39 - Big Trak


Each week or two myself or 3D Total's photo resource will provide a set of photo's to model from.

Each challenge we would like all who participate to model from the same references to learn, improve or showcase your ability in modelling from a photo set.

In my version of this challenge there are no limits to how many tris/quads you wish to use, but I would like to see you all try to match the photo as closely as possible in size & shape aswell as texturing too.

The Rules

Please post your wires, clays, & any texture sheets and final renders in this thread, wip and on topic chat is also fine here too, these challenges are supposed to be fun and we are not too strict on the rules.

The Prizes

The only prizes are a gold, silver and bronze awards dictated by these lovely little icons


Deadline Date: Friday 10.00pm GMT 7th November 2014

Deadline Timer

This Weeks Challenge:

In this challenge i'd like to see you model an old school toy from back in the day, Big Trak was a programmable electric vehicle created by Milton Bradley in 1979, resembling a futuristic Sci-Fi tank / utility vehicle, possibly for use on the Moon or a Planetoid style environment. The original Big Trak was a six-wheeled (two-wheel drive) tank with a front-mounted blue "photon beam" headlamp, and a keypad on top. The toy could remember up to 16 commands, which it then executed in sequence. There also was an optional cargo trailer accessory, with the U.K. version being white to match its colour scheme; once hooked to the Bigtrak, this trailer could be programmed to dump its payload.

In 2010, BIG TRAK was relaunched in the form of a slightly modified replica (cosmetically very similar to the original U.K. bigtrak), produced under licence by Zeon Ltd. There is also a small dedicated Internet community who have reverse engineered the BIG TRAK and the Texas Instruments TMS1000 microcontroller inside it.

Sorry to hear that buddy, but that's pretty much an ongoing trend at this forum at the moment, and have been for a while.

Not only the challanges, but the whole forum too, we get less post and it seems that we get less views too.65members have visited the site today , sound low maybe it isnt? and it's mostly the same people day after day too.

somehow we have to turn this around, but I don't know how, and I have no idea if other forums suffer from this too, as this is the only one i would say that im active on.

Stepping Down...

Hiya everyone, it's with a heavy heart I have to say that i've gotta step down as a mod here, recently my personal and working life has gained more and more of my free time, I still visit frequently, but can no longer dedicate any more time & effort towards the speed modelling or photo modelling challenges. I hope to still visit as often as possible and wish to thank everyone for making my time here as a moderator a happy one, i've made some great friends and had a blast creating my own artwork for everyone to share with.

Thanks for over 8000 posts, 753 thanks, & 8 years of speed modelling, moderating & judging

See you all soon

Hey,

sad to hear that but at the same time, I have to plead guilty as I haven't been participating in SMC / PMC for a while now. I guess it's just how it goes. Another forum I was active on is pretty much dead in the water. People grow up, have more responsabilities, less time in the evening etc.

Anyway, big up for all your hard work and dedication. I improved my modelling thanks to all these challenges.
