Phase 1 - creating the The Delorean DMC -12 base model
This has been a long and detailed project but being able to build a DeLorean (in any form) is a dream come true. I first fell in love with all things DeLorean after watching the Back To The Future movies and have had the pleasure of seeing a number of replica’s up close- not to mention one of the movie used props whilst in America.
I have attempted to keep poly count low (ish) by using some baked details on the wheels mostly. I have also made use of PBR materials.
I sourced reference photographs, plans and videos of the original DeLorean and created it in 3dsmax: Here it is in the Sketch fab viewer.
This will form the base for Phase 2 which will include the Back To The Future additions. I am lucky enough to have been invited by Jason Bradbury (TV’s The Gadget Show) to see his replica version which I can study to create the finer details of the movie accurate version for his VR experience.
Phase 2 - The Photoshoot!
Suffice to say I have a folder with over 150 reference photos of the DeLorean from several different angles etc..
