Portfolio – High detail cars: 1973 Ford Falcon XB-GT

2013: High detail portfolio work – 1973 Ford Falcon XB-GT Coupe

With a polygon count of around 35000 triangles, this portfolio piece is a premium/high detail model made to the highest possible standard, yet still modelled efficiently. Full interior,  running gear, drivetrain and engine parts are modelled and textured. Modelled after an Australian Ford Falcon, more specifically the XB from 1973, with GT package in the 2 door Hardtop Coupe body style.

This model contains more details than any previous models in my portfolio, the body shell comes with all parts detachable (fenders, front clip, doors, bumpers, hood and trunk)
