I know this topic has come up a few times on the FA forum, but no one has seen one anywhere.

I emailed the guys at http://www.CollectableDiecast.com and while they haven't seen one yet, they said they would keep looking and let me know.

I searched around some and noticed that there are no infiniti models of any sort. I am guessing someone does not want to release the trademark out for use. That could be the problem.

There were some limited G35 coupe (actually Skyline) models that came out of Japan that could be purchased at dealerships there, but that's it. Don't know who the manufacturer was.

I'd also like a 3d DXF model so that I can render it on the computer.
Hmmm...now that you mention it, with the right fire under my arse, I could probably make that happen. My old animation company had a department that did accident reconstruction and they had a way of using their scene survey equipment to digitize a vehicle into AutoCad. I actually helped them do it on an exemplar vehicle one time just so I could see how it's done. The animation company is kaput, but the reconstruction arm is thriving independently and I'm pretty sure I could get them to do it for me for not a lot of dough. ****, you think the Photoshop Mod thread was cool... :D

Well, I try to avoid doing anything to a guy's ass, but since it's for the FX ...

FIRE!

Are you saying that they made the 3d object by digitizing a model - or - did they create it from scratch using plan and elevation views? If via a real model, then we are back to square one since we need the diecast model first. I can find someone to do it from drawings but it will cost a few hundred bucks.

Nah man, we made 3d models by digitizing the real-deal actual cars. They roll a car into their garage, set up their survey equipment and then shoot points all over the car -- well actually only half the car and then mirror it. Those that we did for accident work were a little rough as we only shot enough points to get the general idea, but if we spent a day in their shop with my FX we could get something that's pretty decent. It would still require a bunch of tweaking in either AutoCad or (in my case) 3D Studio though. They stay pretty busy though, so I'll have to see if I can work it in.

No idea, BUT I have been in contact with a company today regarding something a little different, but very cool. I'll make a new thread with full details later this evening when I get time. Stay tuned... :D

I'm working on it now; it's going to be a long post with lots of info. Give me a couple of hours.
