    Let's face it, vehicle chase scenes, and memorable vehicles in general MAKE TV-shows/movies. Knight Rider?? KITT was a better actor than the Hoff... and do you think the Ghostbusters would've been as noticed if they were driving a Golf rather than that gorgeous Caddy hearse? NO.

    So the SMC Higher-Ups have been curled up in our lightless cave for the past few weeks shouting random insults and throwing peanuts at each other to bring you all a totally basic, yet totally awesome themed Contest to finish up a very epic year for SMCars.net...

    ...so here it is...

    -------------------------

    ...aaand ACTION!!

    To recognise the most prestigious past and present vehicular chase-scenes in movies, we’re challenging the creative minds of our epic Community to the following: Replicate a famous vehicle used in a past/present film and/or television program.

    This vehicle can be any type from and film or TV show; car, bus, motor-cycle, space-ship, ect, however, it must be a recognisable vehicle, so no “But this push-bike can be seen in the background for 5-frames of this student film” type thing, mkay? We’re talking famous rides such as the Batmobile, Doc’s DeLorean Time-Machine, the A-Team’s GMC Van and the Starship Enterprise, just to name a few… DeathStars are welcome, but we'd advise to go for something a lil' 'more' :p

    --------------------

    Contest Specifics:

    - The modelling, texturing and rendering of one famous film/TV show vehicle.

    - Model is to be created from scratch, with no use of existing elements of your old work or somebody else’s.

    - Model poly/tri-counts can be anything; low-poly, mid-poly, high-poly, it doesn't matter. Technique should still be excercised depending on your choice, eg: poly-flow, topology, texture-sizes if your model could be for a game, ect.

    - Model is to be shown in the LCA WIP section, with the heading "LCA Contest: *name of creation*", and kept up-to-date as much as possible.

    - Completed models to be rendered into two main shots showing off the design at it's best angles. Studio renders would be fine, however creativity within renders is advised.

    - No teaming up. This must be solely your own project.

    -------------------------

    …aaand CUT!!

    The time by which you must have your creations finished and ready for judgement is the 31st of December. That's right, just under 2 months as of the opening of this thread. Prizes are as follows:

    1st: Official SMC Gold Medal
    2nd: Official SMC Silver Medal
    3rd: Official SMC Bronze Medal

    Get to it!!

    Hm, real famous movie cars. To be true, I have no idea what car I could chose :( Maybe the roadmaster from departed, but I didnt want to model it for a contest and Id like to have it in a level of detail which I could never archive in a given time frame. Maybe the Caprice from Jumanji, but I guess I got the same problem there. And both cars are far away from being as famous as a batmobile or KITT.

    I'm a bit surprise to pick a non-car vehicle, but here's my project : the famous Discovery spaceship from the very famous "2001 a space odissey" movie by Stanley Kubrick !

    (no, I'm not going for the Lego version ;) )

    EDIT : Just forget about me, due to a serious lack of time, I'm eventually not entering this contest.

    guys what if the scene involves several cars is it obligatory to model all of them from scratch ?
    because i want to create a scene from the taxi or taxi 2 movie when badguys chasing the 406
    and i have the taxi almost finished (u can find it here on the forum)
    so i'll model the badguys car but is it okay to have the second one almost ready ?

    Oh!!! I have an idea. Do I have to state what I want to model?? I'm really gonna try to compete and complete this contest. Hopefully I can find enough images and resources for what I want to do. If I need to state (prior to a wip thread) what my model will be, let me know.

    off to search for material.

    Sorry, but I didn't get you. You want me to try the Lego one ? Well it's funny, because looking for more pictures of it, I found the whole LDRAW building explanations : True Dimensions - Discovery Maybe I will give it a try too ;)

    I enjoyed that movie but I'm in no way fan of it as I'm for 2001. So came my choice !

    Well as rules say everything must be made from scratch so unfortunately you cannot use your Peugeot :|

    You don't need to say it here but you need to make wip thread where we can follow your progress ;)

    Edit

    Great to see so much interest in this contest :)
