    Love this model and your other work.

    Your link goes to Amazon's mobile site, but I can't buy it from there. I went to the main site and searched.

    Hey guys, I've had a chance to check out Chris's book, I would highly suggest getting it if you are an intermediate user. There are a TON of awesome tips and tricks for making mechanical sci-fi.... stuff. Plus it's only $5 and he's a fellow Blend Swapper, give it a look. http://www.amazon.com/Build-Your-Rocket-Bike-ebook/dp/B0093OVE5E/ref=as_li_tf_sw?linkCode=wsw&tag=beauttutor-20

    Nice pic... have you considered rendering the model out with an Alpha layer and adjusting lights to match your scene? I think it would fit nicely:)

    Hi This is in game arma2 , I have simply used figures from blender .mtl to mirror the blender materials , next I will add reflective materials and chrome , then make physics , do it can be ridden and finally particle effects for booster and guns and rockets fire. I try to update . If you ever texture it that would be nice :)

    Thanks again

    Didn't plan on doing textures for it... but I'm not sure how much texturing it needs. Labels for the controls, some leather material for the seat... maybe something for the tires? I guess you could have a large decal on the side. Is that what you're talking about?

    No rush for any textures . just saying if one day someone unwraps and textures it would be nice, i will do some simple unwrap for game purpose , but long time for me before i get animations etc done, i will keep you informed how it all goes :).

    Hi Chris, I have seen your models and I think they are great. I would like to purchase your e-book too. I am sure I can learn a lot from you. But you book is not available in Europe in Amazon. Is there a place that I can purchase your book rather than Amazon? Keep up the great work.

    Hi Chris,

    When I follow the link it says "This title is not available for customers from your location in: Europe(change region)". I am from Turkey by the way, may be it is not avaiable in this region. I hope you can give me a link or something.

    Thanks for the reply.

    It's beautiful and must have taken some time to make. When I took it apart, it was over 10000 pieces I used it in a tutorial video!
