Initially a fan of Ken’s gymkhana videos, now a Global Rally Cross enthusiast, this is my latest project to recreate the RX43 with 2014 livery. This is now a complete model with the intent of getting it in to Unreal Engine 4 as a controllable vehicle as a part of my Rally Cross race track environment I am working on as a portfolio piece.

The scope of the project was to recreate the exterior as faithfully, and with as much detail as possible. The interior of the vehicle was also in scope, but only to a minor scale as the vehicle will always be viewed from outside and mostly from behind.

Before optimisation the final high poly model was aprox 1.1 million faces, with the final game ready asset coming in at 138k.

Dirt added with Substance Painter using a mixture of mask generators and particle effects. Thanks to Greg Zaal for the environment map.
