Hiya hiya long time no wip topic hehe, been busy and haven't had that much time / energy to model except on weekends ( mainly saturdays ) so this equal somewhat 6 or 5 saturdays work. Most of the modelling is done, remaining is some interior detail , the engine / engine bay stuff and to finish up the undercarriage detail.
Well here's the deal, I know some of you are thinking "is he going to do a rusty version of it?", here's the answer. I'm going to do a slightly flatout stylish abnger racing versin, perhaps slightly tuned and a normal version of the car, tho do not raise yer hopes that they'll be finished when the first version is ready ( flatout stylish ), but I shall work on all the versions after I've finished the uvunwrapping and when I've done the first detail texturing on the model. From there on it's easier for me to work on the other versions smile.gif
Well enough of the text heres some screens of the car.

:edit:
Forgot the polycount biggrin.gif
:: Polies W/ wheels 4756, that is 9234 Tris. It'll rise a bit when I have all the parts modelled

:: Rear ::
:: Parts ::
As you can see all the parts are double sided, expect the rims and windows smile.gif

Very nice work Yazu, the mesh is clean and smooth. Nice low polycount and the model is accurate. Nice exploded view also, gives a good perspective of the vehicle, keep up the good work.

Looks really tidy, nice mesh and all. one thing that catches my eye is the rear fender flare, it seems a little pointy compared to the smooth rear quater pannel, overall its still a mean model and good choice of car wink.gif

Cheers,

@JJHW: Hehe, well don't the 2XX models look all the same biggrin.gif
@Pavlov: cheers
@Cran. : Well no one has seen any work from me lately smile.gif , haven't realy had the time / energy to model much
@Vtech: Well I dunno, I just try to keep the polycount low so some sacrifices have to be made sad.gif
@Jumper: Cheers
@Sin5k4: hehe I think I'll finish this one up before SA is released to PC, unless the release date has been changed smile.gif
@GT-1 : Cheers

Well I'm off to finish the unwrapping, it's a bit boring part of all the stages, but it has to be done if I want the texturing to be nice and tidy smile.gif

Really smooth and detailed I must say... Even tho you're going to release it for VC first, you _must_ convert it to SA later when it's out. inlove.gif

@Error: Aaw , have you missed me blush.gif ... but there's nothing to miss on me biggrin.gif . Oh I've been working hard but not on me own projects. I'll try to stick around more than just one release and then leave for god knows for how long ( just like I did on me Fastback release sad.gif )

Well as usual when everything goes nicely, perhaps too nicely, me windows starts to act up. So I have some XP issues waiting for me back home so I won't be finishing the unvrapping just yet. I did manage to do most of it but still parts of it, like the enginebay area etc is still kinda scattered around the uvmap biggrin.gif , I just hope I get me XP back on tracks and I can get back on working on the datsun ( fingers crossed )

Looks really good Yazu. Only thing I have to say, is there seems to be a funny looking wire towards the window, on the rise on the bonnet.

Looks top class though.....now get some nice renders!

Someone's probably going to hit me for saying this but I like the 280ZX more then the 240ZX ph34r.gif

Nice work though Yazu, I like your change to a jap car as I think your style would suit it well and I can see already that it does.

@Viper: Neh that's not a big deal on the fron wire, doesn't realy affect the mesh in anyway smile.gif
@GTAuron: Hehe, thx. I hope you'll like it when I've done the "Flatout" stylish texturing to it hehe.... It'll be.... rusty hehe biggrin.gif
@Xyzar: Ummm... I'm sorry do I know you... hehe biggrin.gif . Nothing much, just working hard, oh and thx
@Freak: Well I still think they both look the same. And for the 240 lovers this'll just have to do hehe. Well actually this model isn THE 280 it's a bit of 240 and 280 smile.gif
@123abc: *Slap*, no slapping of gta3freak hehe biggrin.gif , thx

Well I couldn't fix the XP issue just yet I started to install XP again but ran into some XP install issues, yawn. Well I hope I'll get it fixed tonigh, tho after I've sucesfully installed XP again I'll make some backups and format me C: drive sad.gif . Hopefully I get it all done before friday so I can get me hands on the bloody model again smile.gif , yay fingers crossed.

Thx, all for the warm welcome inlove.gif

Indeed, it was one of the first VC-styled good looking cars.


And yaz, you should stop wake so early. biggrin.gif
