046? what's that? :grin:

Wires will come with the update I'm about to start working on.

Going to be adding a little bit more detail to the undercarriage, and maybe even starting the interior :eek:8) .. the interior is a maybe though. lol

I also saw one of these with its brake lights on, and noticed that the brake lights on the '87 and '89 are divided in half, with a light at the top, and a light at the bottom. So I've gotta update that, since that'll change the way the lights look when they're lit up.

I'm also going to be doing some large amounts of render tests, which may take up all the time for doing the interior. I wanna get my materials just right though... lol

I'll do whatever I have time for ¬_¬...

and getting the 1990 Ford Taurus and Rescue 911 Police Ford Taurus model kits may slow my progress down just a bit :p

There is definitely going to be an interior ... the question is, will I be able to make one for the contest or not.

At the very least, I'm going to do the "perfect black" interior that I used on my older cars (in my demo reel thread)

it'd just have silhouettes of the stuff inside, and be very simplistic. Because pure black windows just don't look right

But yeah, I really need to get into gear and do that material testing! ... I should start on that like ... within the next 30 minutes :p

I haven't been posting my updates as I should have been...

So here's a huge list of images in hopes of keeping my thread up to date:

tail light shell fixed... maybe. Anyone got a good reference for what the inside of this light looks like? I'm wondering if there's really such sharp seperation in between the two bulbs....


oooo interior started!

Front seat belts modeled out

Dashboard detailing

Another view

Steering wheel and column modeled out (the left side of the column isn't finished yet)

as it looks in the vehicle

here's some pics that I didn't show in the final entries thread... the thing is a wee tad buggy since I rushed so much at the end... but especially since there's no interior visible here, I think it's safe to say, there's still work to be done :p
