Default Vehicle Modeling

Hi, I'm new to Maya, and these forums as well...

I was wondering if anyone knows of a vahicle modeling tutorial for beginners. I do know a few things though as I've followed through with some tutorials.

What I'm really looking for is a very in-depth type of tutorial, or even better, a video on modeling cars (any types, or even tanks or planes as long as you use image references). I need to know where to click to do what and when to do it. Most tutorials on cars that I've checked only have a few paragraphs of things you haven't learned. That's why a video would be exceptionally helpful! But, nevertheless, if anyone finds a text based tutorial with picture references that goes very in-depth, please, drop me a line to where I can find it. It would really help. Really...

OK, thanks, and God bless. Hit me back.

ooo first post and he gets a telling off from Adl.... lol :p welcome to SM. (The duplicate thread in the Members Lounge!!)

If you want to model a car then find the subaru tutorial http://www.blissdd.com/WRX/Tutorial/tutorial.html that's probably the best place to start. If not check out the WIP forum here at SM loads of people are doing cars at the moment (It's not easy by the way for a noobie) but it will be good practice and a good learning excercise.

Default 100% Newb

Thanks..adl, my bad. U kno i keep it tru. We be da real Ni99@z.
Anyways, about that tutorial on the wrx, it doesnt get very in depth. It just shows what the guy did, but didnt explain how you actually use the tools and what tools to use. im new, and a NEWB 100%, so....its kinda hard for me when these tutorials are so..........*short due to lazyness*.

I need a newb tutorial on car modeling...

I feel so bad; I have never made a car and feel no need to make one!

I'm defective!

I do think a few easier things might help though, seems a big step.
