According to OrangeTrackDiecast, Mattel is finally going to release a third version of the Deora pickup. It's going to be a mainline release and part of the Rod Squad collection.

Custom ZAMAC Deora II
So I decided to paint the whole car black and leave some metal exposed so it keeps the full metal effect. The blue windows are the only ones I have that fit the old metal body (there's the Wave Rippers car but I'm not taking that one apart) and they're damaged because I used to play a lot with this car as a kid. Everything has been polished and clearcoated.

Variants used:

2010 Race World Beach (metal body)
2017 Despicable Me (metal base)

Metal Deora II (Base AND Body)
There are lots of special variants of the Deora II which are fully made of metal, but they're kinda expensive. If you have both an old and a new mainline Deora II samples you'll notice one has a metal body and the other one has a metal base. Combine the two and you'll have a metal Deora II for the price of 2 mainline cars :)

Variants used:

2010 Race World Beach (metal body)
2017 Despicable Me (metal base)

Final College Project
My final test for 3D modeling class in college was to make this low-poly character. They didn't request textures, rigging, or a proper render, but I wanted to make all that anyway. The other objects were also made in class.

Eddie's NFS 2015 Car on NFS Payback (Xbox One)
After converting Eddie's wrap on NFS 2015 for use on regular cars, I was able to take note of every single decal along with its colors, positions and scaling. So I used all the exact proportions to recreate it on Payback,with only a slight change in the hood as the minor white outlines require a decal they didn't include in this game (so I had to improvise). Other customization issues are the lack of streched tires and the California license plate, but other than that you can pretty much replicate the NFS 2015 version of the car.

NFS 2015 Eddie's Skyline Wrap for Regular Skylines
There's a special variant of the 1999 Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 in Need For Speed (2015). That variant cannot be customized visually or upgraded, and the paintjob is exclusive to it. But today I had some free time and decided to exploit the Xbox One version of the game in order to change that. To get this wrap for your Skyline you can simply search in the "Recent" tab inside the community wrap selection screen and search for it, but if it's not there (due to you reading this way after I posted it) you can always follow me on Xbox Live, then you'll see the wrap available for you in the game.

Xbox Gamertag: Poodhu

Notice that this is NOT a replica, it's the actual wrap Ghost Games made for Eddie's Skyline in the game. That means it's 100% accurate to the special variant of the car.



Here's how you build an exact replica of Eddie's Skyline (The parts I didn't mention should remain untouched):

- Body Kit: Sunline Racing

- Hood: Sunline Racing

- Spoiler: Sunline Racing

- Side Mirrors: Sunline Racing

- Tires: Stretched (Regular)

- Wheels: Work Meister M1 (Default color, max size)

- Suspension:
                     - Height: Lowest
                     - Rake: Default (makes no difference as the car is lowered to the max)
                     - Witdh: 100% Wide (for all wheels)
                     - Front Camber: 50% negative (center option in the line)
                     - Rear Camber: Neutral

- Wrap: The one I'm showing here :v



I might be able to do this with more cars if people want me to, but they'll only be available for Xbox One and I can't do this with the BMW M3 GTR as I don't have the Deluxe version of the game.

Prototype Style CM5 Wheels
Some of the early prototypes for the AcceleRacers series featured CM5 wheels with interesting color schemes (some are white, some are red, some are dark grey). They all feature chromed borders and unpainted axle tips. None of them have translucent tires. This model is low-poly and is intended for games.

Model by Nicolas D'ávila.
The original creator is unknown, but the transparency effect was conceived by Nathan Proch.

The Forgotten Hero
Just testing rust effect and parts assembly in the Reverb model I'm making. This still needs interior seats and a panel. Rear fenders look smaller than they should for reasons that will be explained later. The rest of the car is pretty much done, like the engine, lights, grill, windows, mirrors, and so on. I just removed them to make this look more like an old abandoned car body.

LEGO Lucina (Back)
Just college work, a teacher wanted us to create LEGO versions of characters we like. He liked this one enough to use it for the rendering and animation classes instead of his own models, so I decided to post this one.

EDIT: Wow, Lucina has a lot of tags on DA. Might as well use all of them :v

Just college work, a teacher wanted us to create LEGO versions of characters we like. He liked this one enough to use it for the rendering and animation classes instead of his own models. A friend in class made me post this, it's just a screenshot as the college computers don't have the rendering programs I like to use. I might make a HD render of her later when I get home.

Reverb Logic
One of the most iconic cars in Hot Wheels history, also one of the fastest and nicest models out there to collect. Still, you'll only see your engine if you try to look back while driving this car :v

And yes, I'm making a Reverb model

RD-09 Early Features
So I managed to get 2 AcceleRacers prototypes by now (the other one being Reverb). But this one actually has some interesting differences when compared to the regular release, so I decided to document this info.

I didn't include the raw ZAMAC blank base or the Barbie plastic on the list because all AcceleRacers protos share those features.



1 - Different grill: RD-09 has a nicely detailed grill, but it looks like that was a late addition to the car, as the prototype has a more simple, less detailed one.

2 - Sunken flame logo:As a First Shot prototype, the purpose of this car was to test fitting and scaling between its parts. This one was clearly a failure, as the interior piece is smaller than the rest of the car. This caused the flame logo to be sunken on the base instead of aligned with it like the in regular cars It is not smaller than the regular fire decoration though (probably scaling issues).

3 - Sunken and smaller rear plastic: This is caused by the same issue as the previous difference, the rear plastic details look smaller because the plastic part itself is smaller.

4 - Smaller front engine AND front engine hole: The engine itself shares the issue of the 2 previous differences, but this case is a little different. Though the engine itself is just slightly smaller, the hole in the body which fits the engine is considerably smaller. This gives us the illusion of an even smaller front engine when compared ot the regular car.

5 - Bigger and smoother side vent: Honestly I don't know why this vent even exists, as it's not present on any concept versions of the car and even Mainframe didn't include it in their animation model. Anyway, this prototype has an even bigger vent, and it also has smoother edges. A friend said it might look bigger because the car it not painted, but I compared it to the Ultimate Track Pack RD-09 (which doesn't have a painted body) and the prototype vent still looks bigger.

6 - CM5 wheels: Most people know early AcceleRacers cars were featured with CM5 wheels instead of CM6s. Some cars like Synkro only appeared with CM5s in promotional pictures, but some of them actually made it to wave 1 of the AcceleRacers toyline, like Nitrium, Iridium, RD-06 and some Metal Maniacs. RD-09 wasn't the case, it was never produced with that wheel type. Yet the prototype has a full set of CM5 wheels. It's interesting to note that the rear wheel on the picture is actually an error, it has some plastic flashing on it.

7 - Misaligned windshield: Looks like the mold for the prototype window piece wasn't all that good, as it barely aligns with the car body (leaving some openings on the sides from where I can see the interior). It also has a code engraved on it which reads "G8115-2419-2".
G8115 is the actual car code, 2419 is unknown, and the number 2 is present on all pieces of the regular RD-09 I drilled into, so my guess is that it's maybe the version of the car (being G8115-1 a rejected version, which makes sense as this car is quite different from Dwayne Vance's original concepts).



Thanks, pretty much it, enjoy!

Tinted Windows! (+ New Chrome)
Finally! After some time trying to figuring it out, I found the perfect way to make purple windows for this custom. Basically I bought a 2013 Reverb (from the Vertical Velocity 5-Pack) because it has clear windows. Then I bought some purple cellophane (exact same color as the tires I'll be using) and carefully taped everything together. Looks awful if you look at the window piece alone, but this life hack is not noticeable when you put the car together! The orange window piece will be used later in another custom, along with the spare 2013 Reverb :D

The interior piece got a new layer of chrome as well as the base. The base shown in the picture is the 2013 one, because the paint in the other one is still wet. The body seems to have a weird light orange in the picture, but it's because of all the extra lighting I set up for you guys to see the interior through the windshield properly. I'll be polishing the body soon, just waiting the 72 hours suggested by the brand which made the paint I used on it. Then I'll add the decals and put the car back together :)

Still need:

- Polishing (body).
- Applying decals (must polish body first).


EDIT: So I noticed a white stain on the windshield. This is a reflection, not an imperfection :)

Green Deora (Rear)
The Deora was part of the Original 16 in the 1968 Hot Wheels series. The car was based on the 1964 Dodge Deora, a real-life concept truck designed by Harry Bradley, (who, by 1968 was working as Hot Wheels' own designer) and built by Larry and Mike Alexander. The Deora is most recognised for its' two detachable plastic surfboards. This casting is the only model from the Redline era to have four small Redline tires.
