OK, before I get started, let me just say that I hate making model requests, but Lord help me, I'm desperate...
Here's the scoop. Something I've always wanted is a decent model of a man in a generic business suit. I've never found any good models that could work. The Indiana Jones one came close, but it wasn't a true business suit, and it had a problem that made working with it in JA impossible (won't bore you with the details of that). Then came that Mafia man skin, based on an unreleased model. That one was almost perfect, but it had some imperfections and glitches that put me off from using it. I'd make it myself, and yes, I did try to learn modelling, but I found that after trying to make the simplest things, I was left with an unrecogniseable mess. I decided to stick with weapons and leave it at that...
So, I remain businessman-less, for lack of a better term. This is a tad upsetting for me, seeing how most of my skinning ideas now call for a bloke in a business suit. I'd just need to have a model that's rigged, UVW'd, and ready for use in-game. I'd do all the skinning/sounds/bots/etc. myself. I realise that I'm asking for a lot. Trust me, I know how hard modelling a player model is, and I'd not dream of requesting one unless I reached the proverbial dead end. The model, if anyone should make it, would be mainly for my own personal use, with a few releases. Any and all released skins of this model would have all the necessary credit given, I wouldn't take any credit for myself, as all I'll be doing is skinning the thing.
Now that that's out of the way, I'll get down to the specifics. Your basic run-of-the-mill chap in a suit and tie. I'd love to have some variation, so if it's at all possible, I'd like different hairstyles: balding, slightly balding, full head of hair, and a generic 70's hairstyle (I'll provide pics if anyone wants to do these). If that's too much, then the balding guy will do just fine (I will be posting an example shot soon). That's pretty much it. Nothing fancy here, yet still a good deal of work, I won't lie to you.
I think I've covered everything. It's rather straightforward, but I'll provide a few pics if needed. I can't offer anything but my gratitude in exchange. If nobody wants to do me this favour, then it's no big deal. At least I gave it the old college try. I always say, it's better to ask and get an undesirable answer, than to hold your tongue, and never find out. Or something like that.
Anyway, thank you for reading.

It was actually a port from Half-Life 2, so it was removed, so definitely don't use that model.

Yikes, it's good thing you told me, because I would've considered using that model if nobody made the request.
