    Howdy all...

    I'm looking for a road texture of some sort that I can use for a diorama for my Interceptor model, the pic below is the best example I could find of what I'm after.

    ACTION2.JPG

    All I really need is a half decent texture of a road like this, nothing flash, just a strip of asphalt with white lines down the middle, the rest I can probably throw together myself with some dirt or something...

    I know I've seen some nice high res road textures online before but don't seem to be able to find them anymore, although I will keep looking.

    please let me know if ytou know of anything like this that I might be able to use... :thumb:

    Here's a quick-and-dirty Photoshop of the photo you posted.
    I hope this helps.

    No worries,

    Thank you both!

    David, that's pretty close to what I needed, thanks for that... I might have a play around with that in PSP and see what I come up with ... but the diorama will have to wait until I can get more ink for my printer.

    Thanks again guys. :thumb:

    The second one is what I was thinking. The only problem is ... the ground has motion blur but the model's wheels won't.

    I was thinking the same thing and almost started planning a doprama based on the scene where the car flips and rolls just before it was destroyed... :D

    By the time I get around to actually making the dio though, I'm sure 1007 other ideas will have passed through my head so there's no telling how it will end up.
