So nice! Wink
But there is a reference to 10252_towel.dat that's not in mpd?
Otherwise... got in the mood for some patterns!

The soda can top is a duplicate of an already made pattern, 98138p0h.dat

Do someone have a good scan of the stickers? I want to complete this model, and make the missing stickers.

I'm curious: How things are going? Any progress regarding your search for a good scan? Hopefully the Beetle Sticker Project is not on hold ....

I've been busy re-working old part at the Part Tracker, but I'll move these stickers to the top of my To-do-list.
I think I can work on the picture of the sticker in this review at The Brick Fan.

Which license plate do you prefer?

Great! But please slow down, there is no need to hurry.

I would prefer the WOB plate which means Wolfsburg. Wolfsburg is home respectively headquarter of Volkswagen.

Wow, that's great, thank you so much. But I think the honor is yours to complete the model respectively to add the stickers to the model and post it. Please feel free.

I'm very hesitant to the idea of making my models available or OMR compliant, so I've never learnt how to work with MPDCenter.
And I don't like, or understand, what LDCad made with my file.

   

I don't want to mess up your file, so here is a copy of my own version. With stickers.

The real fun is to assemble the model yourself.

I noticed the two 45590 axle joiners holding the cooler on the roof are plastic black, they should be rubber black instead.

Nice rendering - would you share your settings? Pov or Blender?

POV-Ray.

I don't have a problem with sharing the settings, it's just that my lg_color.inc file is such a mess that it might not be of much help to others. Anyway, I attached the lg_color.inc and the POV-Ray file for others to take a look at.

Very nice renderings.

http://www.ldraw.org/cgi-bin/ptdetail.cgi?s=24607
http://www.ldraw.org/cgi-bin/ptdetail.cgi?s=t08o2500

are missing for me though.

tip: You might want to consider using submodels for things like the bonnet in the future, it makes posing for HQ rendering alot easier.

Both parts are now correctly imported as unofficial parts into the mpd-file. By mistake I saved these parts not to unofficial parts folder, but to the official parts folder. Seems I have to improve my unofficial parts management system.

I now understand your point regarding the submodels. For the bonnet, the doors and other components I already generated complete groups (not submodels). Here you see for example the upper bonnet group:

[Image: VW_grouped.jpg]

and this is the relevant mpd-file.

BUT: After processing this file with mpd-center for making it OMR compliant, it seems that all groups have vanished somehow!? Here is the same mpd-file after making it OMR-compliant.

Any idea what went wrong?

BTW: The reason that I used groups instead of submodels is that my target was to built the model according to the instructions and the relevant instrcution steps. So for the upper bonnet I grouped main step 170 to 177. The lower bonnet is a submodel within main step 178.

MPDCenter makes comments out of metas it doesn't know about this messes with the group definitions. I think it does that to force the modern comments but it should leave 0 !* lines alone imho)

You can fix it by doing a search/replace in e.g. notepad. Replace "0 // !LDCAD GROUP" with "0 !LDCAD GROUP"

Such a nice model. I wished James Jessiman could enjoy today what he gave to us. Without him my project Renderbricks would not exist.

Great renders as always! I took a look through your Flickr and there were a lot I had not seen yet. Great work!

I don't want to nag, but a while ago you 'promised' (not actually promised, but I don't know a better word) a render at a 3440x1440 resolution which I can use as a wallpaper  Angel

To be honest, I have no idea what, I can't choose.
All your renders just looks so nice, the Beetle, the Porsche, the Nexo Knights minifigure, the spaceships.

Just make something you personally like/is easy for you and I'll probably like it anyway Tongue

EDIT: now that I think of it, this 'ultrawide' resolution might be perfect for a collection of models, a series or something like that... Just thinking out loud.
