Thanks a lot for your words guys! max 2.5 indeed brings back a lot of good memories, it was the first version of max i used when i was a kid. i am using it because i need to use a commercial copy in order to make commercial works, and since i cannot afford it i considered blender or this old copy of 3ds max,i tried blender and didnt had any success , so i am trying to learn to work with the obvious limitations of an old software.

Nice model, crazily detailed!

There are some smooth issues (or maybe something else, looks to me like a smooth issue) on the tire tracks though, it's probably most visible at the upper right tire.

After taking another look at it and when being really critical I would say the plating on the side of the thigh seem to fit in a bit weird with the front plating where the side plating has that pointy part and above that. Hope you understand what I mean, hard to point out when only using words.

Isn't there that free modelling only version of max. I forget what it's called but I think it was based on version 4.

gMax? As far as I know it was discontinued / cancelled a while back. May be wrong however.

2.5 Ah, the memories. Wasn't that the first version that didn't need NT to run? Great stuff, Luima.

gmax is still here.
Definitely better than max 2.5 since it has Editable Polys (it was from the 1st max version that had them).
BUT - and that's a big one - it's limited in the amount of geometry it can export. If I remember well there was a script or plugin to circumvent that limitation. Might still be out there...

edit: sorry for the lack of C&Cs. Do something crappy for a change ;)

Nik: The first version of Max I used was R2 and I didn't run on any NT at that time. I think I was on Windows 95 still actually.

SURELY if you're beta testing for fryrender, and they have seen the quality of your work, they can sponsor you with an up to date license of max? Have you asked them? Stunning work as usual. I wouldn't know where to start on a project like that...
