Tank Cutaways (Part 1 - CG Modelled & Rendered)

I have spent nearly 20 years creating art for Military Books. Of course in the old days I drew & painted them over a three week period but now modelling them in 3d has made the process much faster! As always gathering reference has been the hardest part of getting the art work going. Sometimes I have had to 100% build the model from plans!
