I get offer from one of the biggest game studios in Poland. They need military vehicle(for example bradley) with two kinds turret, two kinds armor (on the same base), without tracks. All next gen, really high quality - hp, lp, UV and bake few kinds maps. Textures later in next step.

I just want to know your opinion and approximate price.
I received offer such that i proprably preffer watch walking dead and other tv series after job than doing this order in the evenings...

How much do you think you would make a year? There are a rough average of 2,000 work hours per calendar year.
5 an hour times 2000 hours equals 10,000 a year.
30 times 2000 equals 60,000. In the USA 30 an hour and up is reasonable.

advice... do it if you think it's worth it.

often that time is best used elsewhere,
though some do it to update their portfolio.

I estimated first step, without textures, close to 90 hours and received price around 550 in USD ehh little joke. How much this would cost on hand in your countries?

And, of course, it is work-for-hire; meaning that they get the models and own the copyright. All for $550? Not for a custom model with options. Typical, though, from increasing numbers of would-be clients.
