The uber expensive one has a chrome area where the core has the dark 360 strip, and the power button is a tad different.

Hello there, wow looks like a cool start... cmon i wanna see some updates :p looking forward to them,

Yeah i agree with ZeroAlarm, i really love how you make the soft rendering feel on the floor/plane. ived always wanted to do that but have failed to find anything on it.

hey echo red, about the two differences and that, is there a differnece in price? lol

hello guys been slow in progress, new job etc but i got stuff sorted so hopefully im back
The renders are using a mental ray area light, the important thing about renders isnt so much the lights, its the materials u use, u have to play with the settings for each one, to get the right look, once finished ill try show u what i mean.
anyways heres a bit of progress, took for ever to get this far cause the way the fronts curved made me not be able to use booleans, so gonna have to split poly everything but its getting there.
