PostSubject: Seeking photos of vehicles for modelling purposes....   Sun Dec 28, 2008 9:54 am

Hi folks

I'm here to ask a big favour of everyone on First Class Trainz.

I've begun modelling vehicles in Gmax, trucks, cars to start with but I am interested in modelling buses, vans, and other road vehicles.

I'm basically asking for photographs of any vehicles you may have, or maybe you can just supply photos. The angle of the photos is important as it makes it much easier to create the texture maps. I need the photos to be directly in line with the front, sides, rear and if possible the top/roof. If anyone is able to help out, it would be terrific.

Anyone who contributes will be credited in the final released version to the DLS.

I've made some Australian vehicles, here is a pic.



Thanks folks.

Hi Colhad,
I haven't got any photos as such, but if I come across some while browsing the Web I'll copy and paste them here for you.
Are you looking for a particular Country or will any do.
Nice looking car fleet
Cheers
Pete.

Be careful getting any off websites, there are copyright issues to consider. This is why I ask people for photos as they are giving me permission to use them. I feel much safer using those.

Real photos of any car Ishie, it can be yours or anyone's. Feel free tp resking my trucks, they probably aren't the easiest things to skin due to the way I mapped the textures.

Lornyk5, that'd be great, if you can do that I'll be very grateful. Thankyou. Very Happy

Hi Col,

Excellent ... during the week I'll take screen shots of my car ... I guess you can always make multi of them just by changing the color. My car is black. I'll drop you a PM at Auran with a link to your thread here when I post the photos so you won't need to chech constantly. cheers

Thanks for the reskin permission ... I'll try my best ... I know what you mean about the texturing. Here, too, I use multi texturing instead of using one giant piece -- very time consuming if anyone wishes to reskin my items ... Basketball

BTW Merry Christmas to you and your family!!! santa santa santa

Thanks again
Ishie

PS Also, asking permission to turn your vehicles into visible products, of course, unless you do yourself, sir! I've made 3 car factories, engine factory and products for car industries ... it's why I asked to make them into product, Col! Very Happy Thank you for reading!!

You can use my vehicles as a product Ishie, sure thing. I'll be uploading my Commodores when Auran return in the New Year, so you will have to wait a few weeks for them.

Feel free to use them Ishie. Smile

Hi Colhad
The type of on-line photographs I was referring to, was the ones brought out by manufacturers when they produce a new model (Posters), some of these show the vehicle from all angles. If these infringed any copyright then I suppose anyone producing a model of a Volvo, Jaguar or even a Loco would be in trouble Very Happy .

As an alternative, have you thought of purchasing some die-cast scale models, the type my grand-children play with. Some of these are authentic models of the real thing. You could place them on a table and photograph them from any angle you desire, including the bottom, as some models even re-produce the exhaust Etc. You can pick these up for a few pence at a car-boot, garage sale or even from the likes of E-bay. You can also get buses, trucks, security vehicles Etc; which can be difficult to photograph, especially if you have a large 12 wheeler.

Just a couple of thoughts to help you out.
Cheers
Pete
