So it's time to hit the ground. After several planes and two (one gifted) animals and an attempt at building a car, I'll design a military tracked vehicle. I've often thought of doing an Indian Main Battle Tank (especially the indigenously developed tank) but I'd prefer to get some practice first. So I chose the BMP-2 vehicle, possibly an infantry carrier or light tank. This is my first design in 3ds Max. Here's how far I've gone with modelling. Photos have not been very helpful, and there's one box at the back I've had a little difficulty designing. I will use a lot of texturing instead of modelling (scale has not been decided yet, but it will definitely be very small) for the accessories, but to give it a 3-D look, I will be cutting and pasting the pipes, hammers and hatches over the paper.
