excuse my ignorance, but what, for instance, would be your purpose for the mini? Was this something you are asked to do for someone, or is it simply for the love of it?
I understand the practical uses for a manufacturing company etc, but do you then design colour schemes and graphics, or is this purely for fun/to keep your skills in form?
It must be some serious stuff to play around with. Do you have to work out the scales etc yourself, or is there like a certain benchmark you can use for sizing etc?
I imagine there must be huge amounts of input into the design....
Anyway I love the posts so keep them coming!
The mini has been made for a Mini Challenge driver, it will be used for sponsorship documents, and livery design.
and now its made i will be contacting some other design companies and on selling the rights to use my model for designs.
what's better to take into / send a possible sponsor, a nice rendering of the model showing what it would look like with their company on the car or a paint picture (like the one attached that i found when looking for mini pics)
i have been finding in europe / uk the 3d models are getting a fair bit of a response as they look more professional
usually i get copies of blueprints / CAD documents from the manufacturers / teams that i use to make the model as accurate as possible. Don't really work on a scale as much just what i can get the reference image in.
At the end of the day these are for presentations not usually used for anything technical
