Too old for me to spend time doing hand drawings , scanning them into the computer, and pasting them on the website. Plus the fact that my memories going. I may accidentally post an image down my shorts or a nude picture of my wife and not know it til after an hour after I post it :P

OMG today must be a good day, not a single typo :)

At least I have the memories of not having to "show my work" in the math class, used to piss my teachers off :) Now I have to show my work because I forgot where I was (like those maps I released, a major uckfup :)

Why is it that when you are a child at the dinner table you can get punished asking for someone to please pass you the fork and knife ?

Coming along, slowly but surely chipping away at all the details. Reinforced the front and rear frame some more, transmission is done as well as the upper control arms, door cards and door jambs (which are always a pain in the ass).

Lots of stuff left to do but its getting there!

  • Front and rear control arms
  • Rear diff
  • Backfacing the remaining bodypanels
  • Interior Cage and remaining bits like seats, handbrake, shifter, pedalbox, dials etc
  • Exhaust
  • Wheel options

The good news are that once this is all done and dusted I can transplant a lot of it into the Eagle MK1, which should dramatically cut down the time it takes for that car do be completed. The engine actually fits into it and with some fiddling and luck I will be able to make the MK1 have a central driving position as its pretty much impossible to have max sit on the left or right with such a small cabin.

Such attention to details, it's amazing to me :)

Hence why I am glad the re-released Carmageddon in my lifetime. Carmageddon 2 rehashed.

It gets really tedious building small details after a while but I promise the Eagle IV is going, its going quite well actually!

Just doing a little something to take a break from detailing

I have also emailed Conrad W Rudy (known in the carma circles are CWR) and asked for his model of the Stiffshifter, which I plan on adding to CMD (giving me an excuse to build a generic big block v8 to put in other cars)

Hopefully he can pass the model to me and I can do the rest, if not then I may or may not create my own based on his design, we'll see.

Here are some shots of said Stiffshifter, you can see how some of the design has bled through into the CMD model. The CWR Stiffshifter appeals more to me with its simplicity, and also is a good remake of the c1 version.

Doing some testing of the color scheme, gives me an excuse to use Redshift again haha. Just having a look at how a game res mesh would hold up in a ray traced engine, not too bad If I may say so.

Ofcourse the paint won't be this new once I'm done with the textures, this is basically just to see what materials go where. I've actually got a lot more done on the car since these renders but I'd like to wrap up the entire model before posting anything else so stay tuned :)

That looks amazing Alex. Please release a version that's completely pristine and showroom shiny, just like that - it's how I always wanted the Carmageddon cars to look.* It's so much more fun trashing cars when they look totally brand new to start with.

*Except for the "working" vehicles like the Plow and Towmeister.
