    Hi

    A while ago tigga and I decided to make a mini-competition on modeling RC-cars.
    perhaps some of you remember the thread
    ( http://www.smcars.net/forums/work-progress/23376-some-kind-r-c-car.html )..

    I know there were some people who liked the idea of modeling such a thing.
    Ok, so now I want to start exactly this contest again (and officially) !

    The Challenge:
    Model a RC-Car (thats what I said yes ;) ). You can choose if you want to recreate a real model car or if you want to design it on your own. It also can look very realistic or it could be more the cartoonish' style (thats the way I will choose I think)

    Texturesizelimits: none
    PC is without limit!
    start date: from now on...
    end date: end of this year (?)
    only scratch made models are allowed! (no I have NOT started yet ;) )

    You also could model a remote control for it or anything else you can think of which could look good beneath your car on the final renders. I suggest that the final entry should consist of 2 renders (car front, car back ..)

    Threadnames in WIP-section should start with [RCC] ..

    c&c anyone?

    I think I may go for this one. I guess since you say you can design your own, there's no limitation on "what type" of RC? So, I believe I'll attempt to model my BoLink Eliminator.

    I've already got 2 feet in 2 compo's but I'll enter this one too.

    As for what im going to model, I'm thinking something along the lines of:

    XRAY XB8R (which im currently saving up to buy :D )

    Hey there!

    I am sorry, but I have to say that I didn't really found time and motivation to participate (in my own contest :/ )
    But there were several other entrys, I know :)

    Everyone who finished his model / chassis / Rc-car should post his final entrys in this Thread now !
    I will wait for one week until now for the entries, so that everyone has enough time to post em.
    After that I will create a poll!

    PS: The models I saw were really nicely detailed, so I think that it should be okay if everyone is allowed to post 4 (or less) final renders to get the chance to show all the details !

    I might join, So can you just model the Chassis? or do you have to make a Body as well?

    You want to join? there is just one week left..
    Chassis, or everything .. thats your choice.

    If noone is finished yet and everyone agrees to move the deadline forwards we could do that.. no problem?

    I've been finished for quite some time and was about to post the pics. I'll hold off on the final pics until you decide if you gonna postpone the end date.
