    Cool Speed Modeling Challenge #220 - Spy vs. Spy

    Speed Modeling Challenge #220 - Spy vs. Spy
    Rules:

    1. Every week there will be a subject for you to model along with a time limit. You should spend no longer than the allocated time, then post a render of your model. As in most challenges like this, your honesty on modeling times is essential. How you interpret the brief is up to you as long as the final model conforms to what is asked for.
    2. Post a wire-frame and a render at 800x600 or larger. (For wireframe help go to: http://www.artssphere.com/plugins/polygoncoloring.php)
    3. LightWave must be used for modeling. 3rd party Plug-ins are allowed.
    4. You can enter as many times as you like, posting each in this thread. If you run over the time, the model can still be posted but won't be subject to the judging.
    5. Time spent on texturing, setting up a scene for a render and rendering is not included in the allocated period.
    6. The winner is judged by the challenge starter and the prize is to set up the challenge after next week's.
    *************************************************



    This week's topic: Spy vs. Spy

    In honor of our government (at least here in the US) spying on everything we do, model one of the Spy vs. Spy guys..... OR..... One of their dastardly weapons (negative points for a sphere with a wick....at least try the TNT bundle with a timer )..... OR..... Any piece of espionage equipment. Night vision goggles, shoe phone, Tape recorder in a Bible, poison needle pen... I'll leave it up to you.

    Good luck everybody! I'm watching.

    Modeling time: 60mins

    Deadline: Wednesday, June, 12th, 2013, 22:00 G.M.T
    System Specs: A pile of sand, a couple of wires, a real live mouse and a beer.

    Never played this one, but I did have a C64.

    Overtime with the pesky wires.

    Thanks Wittywop. The tape texture is just the grid node mapped via a UV map to the polys, it controls the reflection via a frensel node and the colour.



    And some wires.

    I'm at time....

    Bit off a lot to chew........ almost made it.

    Still a WIP. The 'ol melting ice cube as counterweight dangling Mr. Spy over the cactus rig.
    If you've seen it once you've seen it a million times.... .

    They seemed to enjoy carrying their stuff around in Doctor's Bags.
    Much more difficult to model that I expected
