On the last 4 years, I've been developing an accurate model of an 2006 Opel GT. The entire development was registered on the blenderartists wip topic with the same name.

For me this project continues to be a wip and will try to finish it someday.

I'm releasing it hoping to see some cycles renderings and also to everyone better see the details and learn from my mistakes :)



  1. I've been following the development of this model since its first beginnings 4 years ago. Considering the amount of time and detail put into it I am surprised and humbled by the fact that you would release it to the public. Awesome work and thanks for sharing :D

    • Thanks! It's my pleasure, I could never show how much detail it has just by renders :) the release was inevitable... I just would like to had been able to make it a bit better and more complete before, but anyway... it's the best I could do with my hardware.

  2. Wow! Four years! Looking very accurate!!! Very generous, Rogério!
    Thanks a lot, what can I say else! :) I'll test the .blend as fast as I'll have time for this!

  3. Incredible work, congratulations. Unfortunately, both my Blender 2.63 and 2.64 hangs indefinitely upon opening the project.

  4. This is incredibly inspirational work! Your love for accuracy and detail is awesome.
    THANK YOU very much for sharing your progress and the model. It takes this way over the top. This is craftsmanship. I just want to show this to students at my local collage now, and model.

  5. I was taking a glance at the BA thread.
    I see you've modelled the [i]inside[/i] of the rear-view mirror. That's some dedication!

        • Yes, I've seen it, and it looks great.

          By the way, you say "allot" a lot, but that's not how it's spelled. :)
          The expression comes from the word "lot" which means "a bunch, a large amount". Also used in "lots of whatever", for example. Kind of like the Portuguese word "monte": "um monte de gente", "montes de batatas", etc.
          It's a common mistake, so don't feel bad.

  6. Blimey, had to register just to make this comment.

    Absolutely amazing work. I would suggest you approach 3dworld and see if they are willing to make an article out of it. I love the way the modelling was started in 2.49.

    kudos for also making it a free download.....

    • On 2008 it was:
      Pentium D 830 (dual core 3.0ghz, no hyper threading);
      2Gb DDR2 533Mhz Ram;
      Nvidia Quadro FX with 256Mbram;

      Since Spring 2012:
      Pentium D 840 EE (dual core 3.2Ghz with Hyper Threading, thus 4 threads);
      3Gb DDR2 Ram;
      Nvidia Geforce GT440 with 1Gb ram

      On Summer I bought more 4Gb ram and have now 6Gb on total (had to replace some slots that were using 512Mb*2)


  7. Vote for this to be the next splash screen for blender 2.65. No just what would it look like with the Zordan render with the Blender logo on the bonet or the side? to crass?

    • Zordan render looks photo real, showed it to my parents just now, they couldn't tell it was a CGi car. Even I have troubles remembering it's a fake car :D
