[WIP|SCR] 1979-1982 XD Ford Falcon

Recommended Posts

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.

 

Looks so Gearhead Garage.

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

I mainly meant the fact how colorful this engine is :p

 

Game was great too.

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.

I remember when these used to be the standard cop car and taxi... rare find these days. Nice work!

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.

The model looks great so far, you wouldn't happen to still be working on it?

Im not working on this model anymore specifically, I got it to a stage I was happy with it, but I was not happy enough with it being based on the Admiral, so I started a new version from scratch going for a fairly accurate look.

 

Here is a few shots from back in May on the scratch model that I was trying to get as accurate and perfect as I can.

Wow, looks even better than the old one (at least what you have). I love the XD Falcon, it's my favorite Ford model and generation. I'll keep an open spot in my game for this. ;)

I've felt like playing with this car recently, but since the scratch model is not near an in game stage I made some small updates to the Admiral Based Model. Most noticeably the revised headlights-grill section that looks much better and the new wheels, which I showed the model of earlier but now have textured.

Its amazing how so much has changed over the past couple years on this model with all the small edits I have made, they seem to have added up into a huge difference from current model to the first in game model.

Hmm, neat. What's the difference between the two Red Models?

 

"ALO 982" is the current version of the model and ""CGV 107" is the version of the model when I first made it up and tested it in game, differences between them are, new taillights, headlights, grill, indicators, side moldings, roofline, rear doors, front end, wheels, badges, bonnet, etc. Lots of things have changed between them.

 

Basically "CGV 107" was just my first muck around to make something look kinda similar to the rear life car, and since then I have been making small changes over time to make it seem more like the real car, and even today I am messing with the model a little more to keep adding to that.
