Default 200 litre drum model, got bored

Ok so Im THINKING about this challenge...got bored waiting for my tut downloads so I can see how to do this compositing thing...and did this drum for part of the scene (IF I DO IT Jay..LOL). Now tell me what you think of the drum...does it look real enough...obviously it wont be a close up so I think it will suffice? crits please...also if anyone wants the model..PM and I will give it to you.

cheers bullet

How did you do it with Poly or NURBS modeling? I'm still struggling to decide when to use which

All poly's mate...I use NURBS very little..though I am being pushed in that direction for hard surfaces and what NURBS can offer to compliment poly modelling.

This was just a basic cylinder and extrusions...I basically did the one cylinder with no divisions...then slected the body and added 3 divisions to get them nice and equidistant. The rest were just extrusions mate...to get what I wanted. The 2 bungs are seperate geo and just placed.

Try it with NURBS man...that would be interesting!

cheers bullet

EDIT: the little welds on the bungs are also seperate geo...just a half a torus positioned to give the illusion of a weld. Something I keep forgetting and ctbram whcked back into my skull...it doesnt all have to be one geo..LOL
