A sampling of Sue’s collection of 1940 Ford’s.
The first pic shows an overall view of all the different 40 Ford’s I have in my collection, some were freebies, some were not, in the second pic you see a closeup of the 40 Ford pickup gasser, this one was a download from the 3D Warehouse, is made for Sketchup 8, while there are other 40 Ford trucks on the sketchup site, this is one of the newer ones, and is a pretty decent mesh to work with, I used the drag slicks off the back of the Big Daddy dragster by Digimation, and the front wheels are the mags and tires from Music 2 4 u, the hood scoop was another sketchup download.
The next car, the 40 Ford Deluxe Coupe, is a gta download, so is also a freebie, if you know how to convert the .dff files to a .obj, I call this one, “Her Black Beauty”, and a beauty it is, very well done mesh, very detailed model, the only changes I made to it was to change the tires, since I don’t use the normal program for converting the .dff files, the actual materials that come with the model don’t work in DAZ Studio, so I depend on shaders, the tires are from the 1959 Cadillac that is on the 3D Warehouse.
The next one is put out by Nationale 7, this is a fairly decent mesh, it does represent a nice “Standard” coupe, not the deluxe model, this would have been the base model of the 1940 Ford coupe, the gasser sitting next to is also the same mesh, I used the Digimation drag slicks on the back, and ADR Speedworks Crager mags on the front, this model is sold at Rendo for around $18, while a decent mesh, it isn’t as well detailed as it should be for a model in that price range.
The last one is the Digimation 40 Ford pickup, and is an obvious model of a model, to be exact, a 1/24 scale model put out by Monogram in the early 1960’s, the model has had many re-releases over the years, and may even be available today, the 3D model is a very nice, well detailed mesh, is available at Rendo for $13, no engind detail, but the front wheels steer and the doors and tailgate open.
