Thought I should post something to say this is not dead, but I have been working on making up an engine bay for the car.

Nothing special, Nothing Fancy, but more accurate than San Andreas or VC Xbox Model engine that I was originally planning on.

Nice job!

Thanks, modeling what I have has been the easy part as most pictures show that section, the hard part is the lower down parts.

I hope thats a good thing?? When I googled the game it showed a 14 year old simulation game.

Ha Ha, yeah, I have not got around to the texturing yet still got a bit more modeling to do.

 

Anyway, here is a little plan/timeline I posted in another topic "Engine is the current part I am working on, better quality wheels next, followed by the wagon, then some more upgrades to accuracy of the old model" but I might try and make of the accuracy upgrades before I get started on the Wagon.

 

Edit:

Added some wires, cables, pipes, etc to try and fill some space and make things look more like an engine, even if some of the wires, pipes, etc are irrelevant and dont make sense. (Its my first engine, I don't know the tricks of the trade yet)

I'll probably start texturing now otherwise I could spend weeks adding more detail and parts so this is where I'll leave it.

Found a nice matching texture for the Air Cleaner. There was a website reproducing stickers for Australian Cars so I got a few things to make it a little more original rather than making something up or using something aftermarket.

It's a very nice job dude! I hope that it won't die like the Hachura revival though :(

Sorry, but I couldn't resist posting this because of the damning similarities.

Well I ended up getting a little sick of working on textures for the engine so I decided I would skip ahead and make up better (or in this case actual) model of the wheels the XD had.

 

For those who obviously cant tell, the new one is the left and the old is the one right. It is still untextuted.

InB4 Universetwisers, The new wheel might also remind you of an old cassette tape. :panic:

You could reuse the old wheel for a crankshaft part or that spinning thing on a supercharger if you plan to add one (unlikely) :p

Yeah I do not plan to add a supercharger nothing like that was around for this engine back in the day, I do not think it is even available now for it, if anyone wants a more powerful i6 they usually just swap out the old Alloy heads for the new BA-FG Barra Turbo's or just swap in the Supercharged V8's. Still a nice idea though.

Thanks, As you may be able to see then it is not 100% true to the original but atleast it looks very similar to the car.

 

I also tried a quick proof of concept on converting the sedan to a wagon, I stretched the wheel base slightly from behind the rear doors but I think it might also need to be stretched a little more at the rear. But do remember this was only a quick test and wont become the final model

Thanks but I have started making my own engine so I will stick with it now rather than getting permission for someone elses work.

I remember a car looking almost identical to an XD Falcon Station Wagon driving close by to my house. I didn't know that they could be imported to Poland! :blink:

I suppose they could be imported to anywhere, but I would bet it was more likely a Ford Granada from the UK, although they looked very similar the size was quite different between the two cars, I think the only part that the two shared was the Ford Badge on the front and rear.
