    Smile RC car - HPI Savage X 4.6

    Hi there, it's been a VERY long time since i stop doing CG : about 8 years !!!
    Now i try to be back but I have to come back to basic and learn back everything as i forgot almost all...
    My first project will be my rc car : the HPI Savage X 4.6 :

    I think it will be a good exercise...
    See you soon !
    ;-)

    Here it is, the two plates of the chassis (TVP : Twin Vertical Plates) in grey and the engine plate in orange.....
    A good start, all my reflexes are slowly, but surely coming back...... ;-)

    Now with the front and rear plates and the X logo on both TVPs sides.
    That was the fun part with only flat pieces. Now i have to start modeling the other pieces wich have more or less complicated shapes.... glurps.......

    Nice. Did you scan those parts in a flatbed scanner and put them in the background to trace over?

    Thanks for the comments.

    Snosrap : Actually no, i use the manual of the truck which contains vector drawings of the pieces ( http://www.hpiracing.com/graphics/instr/pdf/861.pdf pages 7 through 12) that i import in hi res into LW as backdrop, after a photoshop treatment and conversion, and then, yes, i construct with that. As i say, i also own this truck, so i can look at it to see the real pieces under every angles....
    Enjoy your imagination

    Oh ya cool. I love assembling those things! More fun than driving them! I've built a ton of those Tamiya and Kyosho RC cars in my day.
