I needed to get back into the use of using Unreal Editor (dont ask why we're using that), so i thought i'd start modelling an AWD (though you can't tell it's AWD yet) :)

Here we go:

oops forgot to post why haha,
we're using it for one a 3d modelling module at university, combined with 3ds Max!

That is really cool.. At one point I was doing a lot of modeling and rendering, but it didn't really stick for me. This is back when I had a 486/66 with 8 megs of ram. It took a long time to render anything cool :)

That's ace! I did 3D Studio max at uni last year and found it hard! I struggled to do a wheel! Great stuff Matt! :D
