Ye Gods; it’s two years since I started this.  What an old wrinkly twit am I. Still onwards and upwards,  I hopefully will get this finished before I pop my clogs.  Especially since I haven’t started on the inside as such, which I will not start at least for a month or so as I need to take some internal reference photo’s of the real thing.  raspberry

Hey Red - it’s 3am here so you must be at 2am - I was at a pretty serious whisky tasting last night and still wide awake - what’s your excuse?

beautiful work Red—but then I thought it was pretty good last time before you tore it all up and started over!

@Roygee—you mean it’s possible to simply *taste* whisky without drinking it all??

@hiker_1 - it may be possible for some, but not for me.

@ Roygee,  my creative juices tend to work better at that time of the day.  Plus daughter no 4 and I had been tipping our cups at the local pub ‘till quite late, so I never fired the junior beast up ‘till after midnight hence the 0200 hrs.  cheese

@ hiker_1 & Gostman,

Thanks for the nice comments guys.  I was hoping to have a bash at rendering the exterior but having deleated various unecessary parts/experiments from the master file I reduced the model down from 250Mb to just 52 Mb.  Oh that’s much better I thought until I exported as an.obj which after UV’ing expanded back up to 284Mb.  Junior beast has only 2 Gb ram and chokes when I try and import the .obj back into my renderering prog’.  So I shall up the ram by another Gb if I can find any as it is such an old PC.  Other than that I shall have to wait until I can gain access to the beast which has 12 Gb ram so should be alright.

That said I have broken the model down into its main components and exported as much smaller .obj so I shall try importing various combinations of them and see if I can render something.  If only to sort out the various textures prior too rendering the final.  I’m usless at texturing and I’ve never tried compositing so I may learn something new or at worst, confirm that I’m usless.  LOL

Well upped the ram by another Gig, which has improved the speed a bit but still insufficient to cope with UV’ing so will have to wait until I gain access to my senior beast with the 12 Gig ram.  By the by, I picked up on something mentioned by one of our female members and I’ve been trying out the demo version of UVLayout.  I’ve been quite impressed so far, not that I know much about UV’ing as I don’t really do textures. 

However, what it (UVLayout) has shown me, is that what I thought was a good mesh, wasn’t;  so I have been slowly rectifying the first part of my grotty model.  Heaven knows what will happen when I finally get round to loading in the coach body, I shall be dreading that.  grin
