3D rendering of 240Z be nice....

    So a workmate has been putting together a 3D rendering of 240Z (yes I know I have a 280 2+2)

    the idea was I could try different colours out. Looking at the base model it's not as close as I would like. The guy doing it is top of the line but hasn't the time to make it perfect. Are there any 2D drawings he can use to get the proportions better? Any 2D drawings of Minilites etc

    once it's done I can put it into a exe you can view on any PC with a GPU 53391176_2509243422436471_774981665507246080_n.jpg

    Easiest way I found to do this sort of thing is to buy Forza motorsports / Gran Turismo etc, then you can tweak colours, wheels etc. to your heart's content.

    even though it's on my companies hardware (we make the chips in xbox/playstation) ideally want the model on a PC. I can raytrace car paint to my heart's content. Back in the day the company I worked for sponsored the BTCC Primera years later I sent the Primera club the 3D dataset http://www.npoc.co.uk/forum/british-touring-car-btcc-nissan-primera_topic22669&OB=ASC_page2.html does anybody have a decent 3D CAD model of a S30?

    It's funny with those line technical/line drawings, that the rear view of the car always looks a bit 'flabby/bloated' which does the real thing no justice whatsoever! :D
