    Speed Modeling Challenge #229 - Futuristic Travel and Transportation


    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:
    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: Futuristic Travel and Transportation

    In the news this week, Elon Musk's outlines his plans for a future underground rail system that uses only solar energy and can transport people across America in less than 45 minutes. The Hyperloop may just be a pipe dream, but I love this sort of design and the detail, including the hand-drawn artwork and 3d/cg shots.

    So, this week’s challenge is to model something to do with futuristic travel and transportation. It can be the method of transportation itself, e.g. rail, car, bike, aircraft, time travel pod. It can be a construction used to assist methods of futuristic transportation e.g. futuristic bridges, lifts, stations, docking ports, networks, washing/cleaning centres. Or, it can be something linked to futuristic transportation, something that accompanies travel e.g. sleep pod, pet pod, hyperchair, futuristic luggage, gadgets (futuristic alarm to get you up on time for your journey).

    Did I mention that it had to be ‘futuristic’, lol.

    Modeling time: 120 mins

    Deadline: Wednesday, August 21th, 2013, 22:00 G.M.T
