Im working on an old Dublin tram model. i eventually want to comp it into live action footage as part of a new showreel piece.
this is my first softimage model/project and im quite happy with it so far, happy with the software to :-bd

the reference im using for this is old photos, in every one the trams look a little different so im doing a mishmash of all the images.
any crits or comments are most welcome.

Looks good! But how does it hold up to "our" scrutiny, once you've posted some old-fashioned wireframes? :D

Looks good, man! Wires are good, subject selection is better :)
In my opinion, you should not have waited for finishing the model to start UVing.
When you made it piece by piece, if you kept UVing, it'd save a lot of trouble now.
Since there is not too much necessity of SDS in here, you should still be okay :)

Thanks for the comments, i was thinking of unwraping as i went...but i got a bit carried away with myself :p
a lot of the parts are repeated parts so the uv will not be to bad.
can you explain what you mean by subject selection and SDS?

ohh man i feel like a twat now lol x_x
thanks, i really like the subject matter also. ill be putting together a few models for this shot eventually all from around the time of the Easter rising in 1916, i really love this period in Irish history despite all the bloodshed....so i guess its more of a fascination than love.
i plan to have a British armoured car and some old school cars to drive along side this.(truth be told i have started the armoured car in max some time ago but it still needs tons of work so ill be moving it int xsi for the rest.)

ok, i have altered the name of the thread so i can keep the WIP's of a few models im working on right now in the one place.
all are part of a few showreel shots im working on, ill try to keep all of them in here and update as i go.
im working on all the modeling first, then texture, then tracking then fx and comping where appropriate.
its not a workflow for everyone but for me i like to do all the "parts" at once even tho they are all different shots and as such different projects, and because they are showreel shots i dont really have anyone to answer to...as such im doing it the way i want

and without much further ado:
this is for a shot of a chopper landing in a dusty nasty place, it is to be tracked into footage i took a few weeks ago that will also have loads of rubble and debris and other bits added to it.
