Hey.

Well I started working on my 3rd model, but its the first real one ( if you guys saw the other two you'd be surprised that this is only my 3rd model. Yes, the others were that... basic.:)). Its a tram. I'm trying to make it look 40s-50s, whatever era you like best.

I still have much work as you will see.

Anyway, I was kinda looking for some pointers and advice on making it look more vintage. Weather it be suggesting some good tools ( I'm using 3dsmax ) or posting some good pictures ( I can't seem to find a good picture. ). So basically some good in-put would help.:)

Pictures:

:moved: from OT to mapping (aka editting of FH) forum. Are you making a specific tram model? If you google around a bit there should be some websites with good shots of tram museums I bet.

I just googled "tram musem" (or trammusem): Stichts Trammuseum Trammuseum Rotterdam Tramlijn Nederlands Openluchtmuseum - Wikipedia Historische tramcollectie TS Tramweg-Stichting :: Fotopic.Net

some time ago I stumbled upon a website with tens of photo's of historic trams in a Dutch city (I think it was Amsterdam or Utrecht) but I wouldn't know how to retrieve that website. :(

I couldn't find where you moved it to =p. And I'm just making like a "generic" model of one. I based the design off a few bad quality pictures I found of some 40s trams. I've got much of the interior and more of the ex-exterior done, but I may as well just post the complete tram when its done, and when I can figure out how to render something in 3dsmax to make it look purty.

Said the guy who blamed the Dutch of only playing illegal downloads!

Well all of the dutch people I know get almost all their downloads illegally.

I wouldn't say I downloaded it illegally. I'd rather say I just bought it for free.

Anyway, I'm working on a Willys Jeep as well so I guess it will be sometime before I finish the tram. Or maybe I should put more priority on the tram.

Thanks. I've gotten it now to about 70% complete. I'm sorta tired of just working on that, so I've started work on the German Sd.kfz.251/1 Ausf.A. it has a large cannon on top and an MG-34 on back ( I won't be making the guns, just the mounts ). Actually, wait, let me just correct myself, its a German SdKfz 251 Half-Track instead of the one I previously said.
