2001 - 2008 RM 250 (WIP)
« on: June 12, 2016, 08:25:00 PM »
Edit: have updated the title as I think this shape ran from 01 to 08 at least. Either way any differences were subtle and it will be released as just RM250 with no specific year attached.

Hey all, first model in Blender. Going pretty well so far!

This has to be my favorite bike of all time, not necessarily the year but I was able to find a few good reference pictures of the 2003 and the frame also looked easier to build over the 2001.

Hope some of you out there will get some enjoyment out of this once it's released!

It's the 1st of my favourite bikes of all of time with no doubt. Thank you!

Don't you feel like the current default 2-stroke sound is not realistic for a 250? It's more like a 50cc?

Thanks :)

Actually all it is, is that I hadn't fixed the mesh to give it sharper edges. Just spent an hour cleaning it up

Never, you know we can't! You look the kind of person that plays Fifa, Nba or whatever 1vs1 game and says: I'd never played this game...and then beats you! I know the people like you. 8) 8) ;) ;)

Have you used blender before? If your answer is no I give up with my models.For sure.

Edit: Short explaining: you look the kind of person that can get use to a program or something easily. Sometimes I don't know how understandable is my English.lol.

Haha it's OK..

Yeah I guess I pick software up pretty quickly, but always assume it's going to be harder than it actually is.

Sorry, this is my first time using Blender, only 3d experience previously was SketchUp which is a world apart, but please don't stop making models ;) I love the KX!

Dont worry, I won't stop! I'm doing it slower with the KX500 but I want to do a better model and more detailed parts.

Definitely worth it.. I've gone back (again) and cleaned up a bunch of stuff.. So many poly's I didn't need floating around, the more you do the more you learn huh..

Hows this mesh looking?

The only thing I would suggest is to keep your polys a uniform size (see pic)

Looking good though! Very good for a first model!
