Aston Martin DB5

Not too long ago a 1:3 scale replica DB5 was sold at auction by Christies for £55,000 to raise money for the NSPCC and to celebrate 50 years of James Bond.

This replica was created at Propshop UK by scanning a real DB5, a process carried out on Propshop’s site at Pinewood Studios. Once scanned, the data was processed and cleaned up, which then leaves you with a very dense but accurate representation of the DB5 exterior. Although accurate, the scan data is not precise enough and clean enough to form the basis of the 3D printing process. Instead it acts as a template for a good and clean model to be produced. Below are examples of the model during the building process.

This 3D model goes on to become the basis of the 3D printing, and save for tweaks to parts and components, is where my direct involvement winds down.

There are still many components that are required to be machined and manufactured, and these parts are created in CAD rather than 3D software. Beyond the digital work, there is a LOT of physical model making and finishing required. Most of the interior elements are physically modelled in the workshop, and although I had modelled the entire dashboard the results are more effective for the workshop crew to make and finish them. The major printed components are also work intensive, with epoxying, sanding, finishing, and spraying. All chrome elements for the gold car were sent away to be gold plated once they had been sanded and finished.

With the one of a kind gold car completed, work is continuing on the run of silver cars. You can check it out HERE.

The renders below show the car as it will look in silver.

New Keyshot Renders

I decided this week in my down time to give Keyshot a workout with automotive rendering. Of course my trusty Veyron stepped up for some exposure (albeit in GT guise), but I also dusted off the Lotus Elise and Exige for an outing.

Bugatti Veyron GT Final

I can’t think of any other things I’d like to do with this really. Over all I’m pretty happy with it, so I am calling it done!

New Alloy Rims

I designed some new rims for the Veyron GT, though I am not sure if I like them for the previous ones I designed better, but anyway, this is them!

Veyron GT Interior

As with all my cars this interior isn’t meant for super closeup rendering, and this is as close it it would stand up (ideally looking in through an open door rather than right inside, but it’s ok). Anyway, in keeping with the new GT Blue nature of the car, I have given the interior a two tone blue treatment. As a road going car, I decided that it should have two seats still, but it retains a roll cage inside, along with the race steering wheel with adjustment controls.

Bugatti Veyron GT Update

Time for an update to the Veyron GT. First job was to add some colour! Black is cool, but I thought something less dark would be nice. I also started a little work on the interior, which I’ll post an update on soon, but for now this is all on the exterior.

More Soon!

Ford Escort MkII Shaded Renders

Modelled some wheels today, styled like Revolution RFX rims. I’m going to make some minilites too, which I think will look better, but it gave me a good point at which to put some shaders in place and do a few test renders.

I’ll have some more updates early next week (if not a bit sooner).

MkII Escort Update

Back to some work on the Escort now. I’ve blocked out the forest arches, which look pretty decent I think. I also brought back the spot lights which I had refined for the Capri.

I think I will model split rim Revolution RFX wheels, which back in the day were my favourite rims.
