Hi folks. I decided to have a go at modelling a car. I chose the Fiat because it happened to be the picture I was looking at and I thought it looked fairly straightforward (I was very wrong about this, lol). It’s by no means perfect (my main problem was that I subdivided the body way too early, meaning that subsequent changes to the shape were a bit of a nightmare). I’m definately going to try another car and it should be a lot easier as I learnt a lot while doing this.

The model features a detailed interior and adjustable seats, as well as steering, etc.

The promo renders were done in DS3 advanced. I added a reflection map to the body, mirror and chrome surfaces which you will have to do manually if want to. You will also need to adjust the bumpmap settings (especially on the tyres). Colour changes were done by simply changing the diffuse colour for the body surface.

The registration number is from a friend’s car and I was given permission to use it so you shouldn’t have any legal problems (you can always make your own using the provided template).

Hope you find it useful.

A great little model, thank you.

My sister used to have one, and we called it the Puddle Jumper.

What’s the set in that shot with the blue one? It looks like out front of my friend’s flat in Stratton… *laughs* (As always, love your work. Totally swiping this.)

I like Bryce, DazStudio, Poser and Vue ... in alphabetical order. And I would probably like Carrara too, if I could find the time to become acquainted with it. Peace?

Smells good to me and Adam Thwaites’ cat, Jack. Fantastic, in fact.

Rendered here with basically nothing adjusted, alongside a key part from Skipper’s Coronation Street and some of flinky’s Terraced Houses (all ShareCG).

You just go right ahead and make models of anything you like—you’re good at this!

Hi! I downloaded you model when I saw it on ShareCG. I haven’t gotten around to install it yet, but it looks really impressive in the Promo pics. Also all the rigging with the doors, seats and wheels is really cool. Most freebie cars are just static models. So when I see one tricked out like this I get excited.grin

Thanks everyone. It’s amazing how many people have fond memories of these cars. I had no idea they were once so popular.
