OK, this is my very first model, after seeing Marksman's tutorial I thought I would try and make a full MP40 (brilliant jump mate, I made it into a page long tutorial HERE (http://www.jojosplace.net/DoD/marksman/marksman.htm).

Its obviously not finished yet, infact I really only started it yesterday, I just want to opinions on it now...


New pics up now:

Not bad. Just one minor issue : The metal parts at the magazine feed-in could be textured instead of modelled - would save some polys.

09-06-2003, 04:40 AM
Looks very good so far. If the textures will be as good as the model I will be happy.

09-06-2003, 04:41 AM
I was thinking of a ultra-high poly and low poly models.... but yes I do see your point, thanks!

Learn to properly smooth things with MAX. You could round off the magazine a bit, and you went a little overboard on the body of the gun. Try and redo the body using less faces.

The mag was just stuck there to see what it would look like, and Im going to make a high poly version (cos I like lots of model detail) and a low poly one (so i need to skin it properly), thanks for the info.

for a first model, it looks very good.

On a side-note, the bolt shouldn't be that much up, it should be more on the side (you can see it in on the MP40 in my sig..)

here are a few better ref pics than my sig :rolleyes:




hoped those helped...

Looks bloody great mate, so far all i can make of an mp40 is the barrel in the tut lol

Keep it up,


09-06-2003, 12:55 PM
aw... no MP40 stock?

09-06-2003, 01:13 PM
Yeah after I finished the tut I knida thought 'thats a small mp40' after looking at a few pics I realised that it wasn't finished :eek: ... so erm... there you go!

LOL there will be a fold-over stock, used by Fallschrimjaeger. I'm just lazy and ain't done it yet :D .

09-07-2003, 03:59 PM
Here are the latest, the stock rest needs to be reshaped I think, and there are so many polys it's really uite silly, I got a bit carried away :eek:

Anyway, wait till you kind out the poly count.... it was 11000 (yes eleven thousand) and now it's only 7000... yeah... only

Obviously 1/2 of the poly can go (as you'll never see them in the game) but it's still a hell-of-a-lot of polys ! :mad:

09-09-2003, 04:48 AM
Im handing this over to anyone who wants to try and finish it (Ska Wars might look at it). The polys are high and I want to work on something a bit different...

a Lewis Mark 1 :D !

If anyone wants to have a go PM me or email me at mail@jojosplace.net or jojo@dodsupply.co.uk (prolly both then I really deff get it).

I'll keep looking at this obviously, but I really want to do that lewis!
