Default [Vehicle] Leopard 2A4 [WIP](FDF)

Hello o/

About a year ago when 3ds max and 3d modeling itself was a completely new thing for me I started working on this model of leopard and got it almost ready. But then for some reason stopped working on it and just forgot about the whole thing.

So for the last few days I have been fixing the old model since it had an awful lot of weird and bugging things in it (rats nests as max calls them) and added some extra detail in it.

It has been a real pleasure to model this tank because the internet just seems to be full of useful reference images and a lot of them especially from the FDF version.

Now that I think I have the turret pretty much wrapped up I'd like to receive some critics.

I heard there are some other comfacs in need of the Leo but I am planning to make some very fdf -specific details in it. Should I include those details in a separate child object and uv map? Is that even possible?

FDF details are seen here in red wireframes.

















We have also been talking about adding the kind of camouflage seen above with alpha planes.

What's the preferred tricount for main battle tanks btw?

The turret looks good to me. I served with Leos in the armoured brigade and I have to say that you've done very well.

As a bonus, if you'd like, maybe you can add a logo on the side of the turret. Like this:

Maybe we could do that. a heart would have been pretty bad ass though.

Do you have more useful reference images?

If you're going to make multiple versions, you should model each separately in Max and export them as individual models. So if you haven't added FDF specific details at this point, save the turret in a separate max file (you should be making periodic backups anyhow) and then start making your changes, if a COMFAC wants you to do their own nation-specific modifications you can go back to the original turret and start from there.

You can do the child object method AFAIK but its horribly inefficient, I wouldn't recommend it in the slightest.
