Wow.  Serious amounts of detail that I wouldn't have fully appreciated 24hrs ago.

So the simulators... what did that involve?

i just did the 3d models for the simulators (can't find any pics :( )
we worked with Panoz and made the Team Australia simulators for driver training

went a little over board on detail with the mosler  :doh: considering in all the final renders you can't see under the engine cover or front splitter

That's nuts.  But yeah I can see how you can get carried away.

Even my "let's design my own wheel to learn this thing" turned into separate front and rears with different dishes, my own tyres, etc etc.

The cars i like i tend to go a bit mad, you can't see but the mosler has full seat belt and buckles inside
I'll just add a motor, and exhaust, and suspension, and ...

I'm yet to do any of my designs,
If you want some challenges can suggest a few things LOL

KTM X-Bow - Extremely hard as i couldn't find blue prints and made it from photo's, same with the Lotus F1

It was easier than doing the cars from photo's - although it was quiet a bit wrong its easier having a model as you can look at any angle you want not just what people have pics from

did a 430 for a uk team, was much more useful having a model on my desk to work from
