Brian, you will always amaze me on your speed. Like, how.. do you just know how to make any desired shape by heart so that theres no real time involved thinking it out? Heheh. ANyways, its looking great.. i loved when you had more of just a flying machine.. as that would of been sweet with 4 jets on the bottom going in various directions... but this is awesome too!

yeah, the flying machine idea was kinda cool, but it would be very easy to still do that. I have 3 different versions of this saved, one is a flying vehicle, land vehicle and the last version is a traditional walking Mech. Thanks for your input! How do I model so fast? I don't know, I guess I just don't really think about it that much. I just go, Once I have an idea, I don't really stop to think about design to much, I just do what ever I think looks ok. here is another update, I kind of like the cockpit more on this design. Thanks again,
Be

Btw its going to be a while before i post more today, I have to go to the bank and stuff (gotta get $ So I can see X2 tonight!! )


Also, don't know if you can tell. BUt I was kind of inspired by my Furby car.

wow brian this car looks excellent! I think it looks better than the flying one, but as M said it would look great with some big jets on the back.... (i know he was talking aobut the flying one but... )

I think you should go for some big chunky offroad tires those would look wicked!

Great work

Alan

Hopefully you know what I am talkin about, the bare ones? anyways, here is what it looks like raised and with off road tire, witch still need some work. does it look better lowered or raised? THanks alot,
Brian
