    Hi,

    I'm new here, well been reading posts for a while, never posted. I'm considering this one, by "Textures or custom materials aren't allowed, only your 3D softwares default material" do you mean the car should be default grey (3dsMax)?

    Thanks,

    StuButler

    like the gray yes, but you can use other colours.
    everything you can do with the default material library

    Since these are small contests, post your progress in this thread if you like. The big contests have their own place to post.

    Excellent idea!

    What a great idea! I don't have much free time right now, but I think I'll have to give this challenge a go!
