Besides OTW there isn't many other places you can get them.

another way to get one ( which is a cheap alternative imo but can work ) is to Photgraph a PP2, front, rear, and both sides at a decent resolution, and then load up in Photoshop.

Photoshop -> Filter -> sketch -> photocopy ( to make it appear more drawn ) and then add a layer and use the line tool to draw the lines in the layer you made.

much like the image below.



If you don't have photoshop to do this with.. perhaps.. ms paint? use photo's to draw the bus shape and details in?

or This Site might be of use to you, if you use anything though, message the guy and credit him for the blueprints

( thank you Joey for bringing this site to my attention ) Cool

Thanks simon, very helpful as per usual. I will try that photoshop thing and I love the blank beprints on that website (I will be adding that to my favorites) the only floor is that it only has one side of the bus.

Thanks

I have started to model this PP2 but this happens (see picture 1) and it is completely flat as seen in picture 2.

Picture 1:

Picture 2 (Proof that they are straight, I could understand if they were a curve but they aren't Confused ):

Please help me Mr. Green Mr. Green

Thanks

one thing you'll learn about modelling in zmod.. calculate calculate calculate.. and when you make more polies... calculate some more!

also youve taken the screeny in 3d view so its likely that its stretching the rest to remain in view, stick to your side views until youve got one side done Wink

trick to it is you've gotta get a good solid picture when photographing , i.e the entire bus in sunlight with no shadows cast on either side ( otherwise it'll screw up the photocopy render ) Wink

Thanks Gizmo, but one thing I forgot to mention is that when I create new faces the texture is dark and even when you texture it, it is darker than the actual texture. This happens even if it is not connected to any other polies Confused Confused ? Do I still have to calculate the normals on this?
Here is an example of this:

This doesn't happen when you create new surfaces Confused Is there something wrong with my ZModeler?

Thanks

Hi, I have started this project but I would just like to know where I can get good textures from e.g. the old stagecoach livery and the new one because I think that to ones on the blueprints are prettey rubish and I hate the buses that uses them. Gizmo I have seen your buses have nice livery textures, would you be so kind as to share where or how you got those textures please?

I will post an update on the bus tomorow once I have finishd connecting the front and the left and then I will start on the back, right and of course the roof. I have almost completed the front and the side and that just took about four hours and I think that is good timing and it is also good quality I think well at least for a first model.

I think I have finaly grasped the art of modeling Smile Smile Smile Wink Wink Wink

Off to bed now and will continue when I get in from school tomorow.

Thanks
Danny Call

You could always try painting the liverys yourself in paint or something.

Thanks but I think they are done in paint and it would probably give the same crap quality but I have the day off school tomorow due to the snow so I will be modeling all day Smile Smile I will probably put it into photoshop or something like that.

Thanks

Hi, here is the promised update on the bus, better late than never Smile I still haven't connected the front and the back with the side as I haven't been working on this very much lately and the back isn't complete yet.

Front:

Left:

Back:

Let me know if you like it and/or if you would like a wireframe.

Any constructive critism is welcome but please don't have a go at me by saying it is just crap or something like that because I know what some people on here can be like Mad Mad Mad

Thanks
Danny Call

Thanks for that I wasn't expecting anyone to be that impressed and I just thought I might aswell post it here instead of creating a new topic but do you think it should be in the post you project section?

Thanks
