    Hey guys, its my first time using Blender so I will need a lot of help. I haven't started making my model because I don't know how to, I've been through loads of tutorials but i havent found how to do it. So people im asking of your help.

    Model: Citroen ZX

    People might and probably will disagree but I'd do your first model in zmodeler 1. It's a lot simpler IMO.

    http://www.etspe.ca/zmt/v1/

    That's the tutorial that taught me, it took about 2 years to really 'get it' though. But then again, back then I didn't have much of an attention span.

    Good luck :)

    Ok, I am impressed.. in fact.. I am impressed with anyone that can do anything
    at all with Blender. I never get past the loading screen.. I just sit there and stare
    into the UI of Confusion while my brain spins and then it goes blank..

    I think you might have mixed up the Citroen ZX blueprints with those of a Bugatti Veyron... :p

    Looks fairly good so far, good luck with whichever you do make.

    Too bad you changed the car you're doing, Veyron is such a boring car. :)

    Looks pretty good for a first, keep it going.

    First of all, I'm in agreement with Luke.. it's stupidly confusing imo. Zmodeler has served me well so far though, so I'm not bothered about learning Blender atm :)

    And second, I'm impressed as well, nice going, especially for your first. I don't think my first was even 3D, it took a while.. :tongue:

    Go back to the Citroen. The Bugatti will be far too hard to get right. There's too many curves and bends. My 2c

    I use blender and it is so easy to make changes once the car is in Racer, Tiberius made his great Jaguar with it.

    A long time ago I updated the Bugatti veyron and put it on tracciontesars website, one of my favorite cars.

    Keep going with your version and if you need help with Blender just ask.

    Yes i see the veyron has been made before and as i was looking around the blueprint i'd found out that making the back engine is quite difficult also i haven't seen a ZX in racer so it made me want to make the ZX, but i tried to find a blueprint for it and couldn't find any so il keep looking and if anyone else gets a good blueprint let me know, thanks for the comments
