Lego Ghostbusters ECTO-1 Car


Ivan Novikov created this awesome ECTO-1.<!--more-->

I like Lego a lot, so i decided to do new Lego related project. With all the buzz (including negative stuff) around new movie I decided to give tribute to the original Ghostbusters ECTO-1 Car.

This work took me a week and a half to complete. I used Lego Digital Designer to create model. Then i brought it into Blender. When model comes from LDD to Blender it's usually broken so I spent a lot of time fixing bricks and giving them very important beveling.

I used PBR material with SSS Shader for the Lego peaces. It's suddle, but I think it's very important to use SSS when it comes to rendering Lego. Also I rigged the car, as it's seen in the video.
