Default Off road Thunderbird

I did this in 8 hrs on Fri. I still need to do the textures, pulled the tires off of my jeep. Thanks!
Brian

BTW I have now added body damage and a few textures, I will post an update when I get a chance. Its all Subdivisions, except for the tubes, those are Nurbs.

My father used to have a Thunderbird and he used to call it a Thunder Chicken.

Nowhere near as cool as this bird though.

I am mystified about the tyre treads... Are they geometry or did you use bump/displacement maps? I've probably asked this before but I cannot remember senility must be creeping in...
