Hey.

I love this - its awesome! I quite like modelling mechanical hard surfaces, I might try one of these, so thanks for the inspiration!

How much do the real models cost roughly?? I'd actually quite like to have a go building one of those too.

I think I picked up a Defiler for about $35 (US) on ebay.

LOL..I haven't even painted mine yet....because of a few personal things and the fact that I'd probably have a brain tumor trying to detail all the little surfaces.

I'm not happy with the way this face looks at all... (this being my first attempt at a face)...for some reason, the mesh is waaaaay too thick. Could someone please educate me on how to clean it up and reduce the polycount without losing detail?

Hi, Its looking really good!

Re: The Head: How did you model the head (Nurbs/Polys)? If thats the poly smooth do you have a pic of the un-smoothed poly mesh?

Cheers,
Trev

im guessing that you are building a rough poly cage then doing a poly smooth...your need to be really careful about how you build the surface...stick with quads if you can...stay away from N sided polygons and use triangles only when you have to : ) then when you smooth you should get a better looking mesh..also make sure that your smooth options are correct..you dont want it to smooth it to triangles..

Yes, that's what I was doing. I went ahead and just deleted the face, I'm going to attempt to rebuild the face after I get the rest of the top modeled. I'll try to put into practice your suggestions and before I smooth it, I'll put up a unsmoothed polymesh for you guys to C&C.
