Racetrack progress

Pretty much the same view as the post the other day

The catch fencing at the circuit. Each of the blocks has only 90 edges

An overview of the circuit

Hey guys!


Hey guys!

So I haven't been very active lately. I know. I do have quite a few backed up projects to share. They'll be coming shortly. I also have about 30 projects that I've started and aborted over the last two years. An idea hits me and then I abandon it. One day I'll finish some of those. Maybe.

Anyways, I'm working on my second racetrack since Malta, which I was proud of. This one is going to be a little different. It's completely flat (I know that's cheating) but it's a nice layout and some of the scenery will more than make up for it. That's part of it above.

I've got a really great house model to share - and it all started as a rendering test for a pool texture. I've got another house design - this time more of a mountain lodge feel. There's a couple of office buildings, a stadium, and of course, my SDC2 and SDC3 models, that I will take you through in a lot more detail than I have before. Hopefully they should be up over the next couple of days.

I hope you are all well. Happy modelling

Industrial Arena

Hey guys

Just thought I would share a few shots of an industrial building conversion into a small venue I did a few months back.

Perry Park completed

A night view of the main stand with the roof open. This rendering shows the upper tier partially covered by a fabric banner. This reduces the capacity to 13,547 and improves the appearance of the venue during games.

A day view looking west with the roof open

A street level view facing west.

A view of the site facing the northwest. There's nearly 200 parking spaces to the east of the site.

A view from the Bill Waddell Stand with the roof open during the day

And the same view with the roof closed.

A roof closed view from the top of the main stand

And the same view at night.


A view of the site from the southwest

An aerial view of the site from the north with the roof closed.

A top view of the site

A view of the pitch from the home end.
Total capacity of the site is 18111 seats, with 48 disabled spaces and 30 closed boxes.

Sunshine Coast Stadium upgrade

Good morning to all of my followers, and happy new year to you all. I hope you all enjoyed your breaks.

Today I present the proposal for the upgrade of the Sunshine Coast Stadium. Work is ongoing on the site at the moment, building three new 8.5m tall hills around the pitch. This is showing off my (basic) interpretation of those plans. Coming soon on my blog is a proposal for further upgrade on the site, turning it into a seated venue. This is far from a real proposal - just demonstrating how it works.

The view from the east of the grandstand.

Overhead view of the site

Angled view from the southeast

View from the top of the northern hill, underneath the 36sqm videoboard.

A view from the sixth row of the grandstand - really shows off how high those hills are

Angled view from the southwest

A view from the east of the venue at 2m elevation. One of the common criticisms of the venue is the strong easterly breeze that blows across the pitch. These hills will help immensely to reduce the effect of that for both players and spectators.

Malta International Circuit updated

The view from the karting track up at the Malta International Hotel, Malta Arena and Maltese Eye.

The view from turn 11, looking across the track.

An older shot of the pit straight. Pit lane has since been reprofiled, making the exit a little smoother.

Turn 9, looking back towards turn 8 and 10

The view from the grandstand at T16, showing T16, T17, and the pit lane. There's lighting that has been added under the hotel, so there isn't the harsh shadowing now as in this render.

Looking down the pit straight from the back of the grid.

Another view of T16 and T17

Turn 5 - one of the trickier braking zones on the circuit. A downhill run while turning into the corner, and little camber to help you. Deceptively steep, and very easy to spin the car around.

Aerial view of the site.
