    That's probably what I'm talking about. It was all the rage, a couple of years ago.
    Use what you know about the world to model…
    Learn from modeling what you don't know about the real world.

    - I might have one tucked away somewhere... Give me a day to locate. Perhaps can offer it up as a sacrifice...

    Oh, so you aren't using the 3D scanning method, hence you need to take apart some models. I was hoping you had a scanning setup, as some of the models I was thinking about are worth a bit of wampum... still, something to keep in mind!

    This is a really awesome thread, I may have some ideas for vehicles I'd like to see but I'll have to find examples to use. I'd really like to know more about your process if you don't mind sharing.
