After another day modelling of the lorry I'm still not quite finished. I've been detailing it out so you get a sense of scale. I'm confident it will be finished this week :)
Edit: Forgot to mention I spend a lot of time looking at rendering in Max. Here at Nexus they use V-Ray so I've been looking at the V-Ray shaders and doing some test renders. I've not quite got the hang of it yet but I'm sure I'll get there.
