I noticed a discussion on the facebook page asking if Japanese cars will be included in the mod. I think this would be great!

Here are some Japanese GT cars you might have seen racing in the 1970s:
Datsun/Nissan C110 Skylines, 240, 260 & 280Zs, 1200 and 1600 Race cars
Toyota Corollas and Celica TA-22s and also Toyota 2000GT (1960s)
Mazda RX-3s and Series 1 RX-7s
Isuzu Bellett

I have some experience in modeling cars using 3DS max and I sometimes make scale plastic car model kits as a hobby, the kits which contain top, side, front and back pictures of the cars are usually suitable for using as blueprints for 3d modeling. Maybe I could have a go at making a car. If it turns out any good I'd be over the moon if you wanted to include it in the mod, assuming you have any plans to include Japanese cars. I have no experience in modding for rFactor per se so I don't know anything about creating and modifying the physics, sound or just getting it into the game in general, all I could do is model the car and try to make the UV maps.

Here is a picture of a kit with a Mazda Savanna RX3 GT.

I also have a GT edition Savanna RX7 kit from the late 70s.

Well, I'm going to need to buy myself a scanner/printer combo because my old scanner and printer don't work on Windows 7, then I can get started on the car in the picture. It'll be good to be able to have my completed model on the desk next to me for reference .

In my local hobby shop all of the 70's JDM car model kits they sell are mostly the racing GT versions with liveries anyway. So we'll be seeing lots of big wheel flares and mirrors half way up the nose if I can produce some good models .

Hey merc, you need to upload them to somewhere like imageshack.us if they're stored on your computer then when you make a post click the image button below the subject text box and copy and paste the link to the image between the bits of code

[ img ] Put your link to the image in here without the spaces. [ /img ]

Never got around to starting a model because my scanner didn't work, thus I couldn't scan my blueprints for use and I'm not good at guess work.

Here's some inspirational photos anyway.
Mazda Rotarys (R100, RX-2, RX-3, RX-7) racing at Bathurst in the 70's and 80's.

Nice ones.

BTW why didn't you try getting these blueprints on the Internet? there're tons of blueprints out there.

Regards


I've never been able to find any blueprints of good resolution and detail for these cars.
