The obscure cars thread... Empty
PostSubject: The obscure cars thread...   The obscure cars thread... EmptyMon 13 Nov 2023, 8:26 am

The recent 1963 BSCC skin pack that silent_gxg released got me thinking about the cars that were raced back in the day but always get missed when the latest race game appears.

Anyone who's seen the mods I've made will know I tend to go for the less obvious cars but that means source material is often hard to come by. So I had an idea for a thread where lesser moddled stuff can be shared and maybe that'll lead to a few more mods getting made  Thinking  Here's a few pics of some of the 3d I have on my hard drives. Now I know with the snail like pace I work at I wont get all or even most of these done so If anyone wants to take any of them on just let me know and I'll supply what I've got. Feel free to post pics and links of any similar stuff you have or know about and we just might get to race something other than the usual sim game fodder!

I'll start with an actual work in progress: Austin A50 Cambridge and (eventually) A90 Westminster;

The obscure cars thread... A50_wi11

The obscure cars thread... A50_wi10

The Westy was the first ever BSCC Champion back in 1958 in the hands of Jack Sears. This is from the Friday Night Bangers mod and despite being low poly it's a nice model. It's had a lot done to it since like the front valance, windows and chrome etc and there's still a long way to go. It really could do with an accurate dash making for it if anyone can help? Wink

Here's a few largely unstarted drive dwellers that will hopefully see the light of day sometime...

Ford 100E;

The obscure cars thread... 100e10

The obscure cars thread... 100e_r10

I really want to build this at some point. It'd make a good competitor for Nig's A35's. I also want to update my old Anglia 105E mod with the Forza 3d too...

Jaguar MK8;

The obscure cars thread... Jag_mk10

Another on the 'want to' list! I'd love to see more 50's cars and these big lumps were raced up to the Jag MK1 and MK2 taking over.

Ford Consul MK2: speaking of the 1950's this looked like a good candidate. It was a STL file that only cost £1.89 but was about £1.88 overpriced! It turned out looking like it was moddled in icing on a cake;

The obscure cars thread... Ford_c10

The 3d is odd to say the least;

The obscure cars thread... Ford_c11

I tried to get rid of the lumps in Simed to no avail but if anyone knows a way to smooth it please let me know  scratch

Morris Minor 4 door;

The obscure cars thread... Morris10

I know there's a Moggy mod out there but there were a few 4 doors that got raced! A bit pointless maybe but it would be an interesting add-on to the mod if I ever run out of other stuff to do  Laughing

Back to the 'Bangers' mod and here's some more candidates;

Austin A40;

The obscure cars thread... A40_ba10

This is similar to the A50 in that it's a nice model that needs detailing. These were raced a lot too through the 60's and beyond so plenty of cars to replicate out there and high on my to-do list.

Sunbeam Rapier;

The obscure cars thread... Rapier10

As above. These would be great for the 1963 BSCC series but lots of chrome bits and interior to add first!

Zephyr/Zodiac MK3;

The obscure cars thread... Zephyr10

The obscure cars thread... Zodiac10

The Zody is another car raced the BSCC in '63. This is an ok model needing work. The Zephyr is quite good in places but has some weird shaping to the side and a roof that looks like an afterthought. Might be possible to combine them  Thinking

A couple more Austins. These are from Sketchup iirc.

Austin 1100;

The obscure cars thread... Austin12

Not raced often but there was a couple Rallycrossed in both 2 and 4 door versions.

Austin 1800;

The obscure cars thread... Austin13

The old 'Land Crab' did make the odd appearance in endurance Rally's and Rallycross. This one's not too bad but really needs the front wheel arches moving back a little.

Ford Consul Capri;

The obscure cars thread... Ford_c13

A beautiful model of a beautiful car but did anyone ever race one of these?

Ford Cortina MK2;

The obscure cars thread... Cortin15

There's the Lotus MK2 already released which uses the old Rally Trophy shell but this is a much more detailed body. Would obviously need a 2 door version but that's already been done for AC. It'd be a nice way to update the existing mod in the same way I plan to do the Anglia's.

Ford Capri MK2;

The obscure cars thread... Capri_19

This has been on my hard drive for a long time. I've owned a couple of these back in the day too so might get it sorted one day  Wink

Triumph 2500;

The obscure cars thread... Triump11

The obscure cars thread... Triump10

The obscure cars thread... Triump12

A much nicer STL file than the Consul! This would make a very good mod if only I can find the time to get on with it  Rolling Eyes

I'm sure there's even more stuff lurking on my drives. Let's see what you've got stockpiled or know about and maybe some of it can hopefully get built and released   thumbup cool

The future is exciting, I had a 100E in my early teens, just after the scrap merchant took away my E93A, my brother had A50 followed by a Rover 90... we were poor and bought cars for a fiver back then.
I remember seeing a Classic Consul Capri racing at Brands Hatch in the early-mid 70's, I have no idea about period times though.
As for the big Jag, what can I say except I will do the Goodwood Six hours in it if it becomes available, for some reason it seems more of an iron monster than the Galaxies.

It's slowly getting there...

The obscure cars thread... A50_pr11

There's a few more things to add like optional Tacho and Roll Cage and a couple more wheel sets (4 so far) to do and it should be out there ready to race Smile

Well, as ready as an A50 ever was Wink

A beautiful model of a beautiful car but did anyone ever race one of these?

Maybe in NZ, as the car was also built locally as Consul Classic 315: "The Ford Consul Capri was sold in New Zealand as the Consul Classic 315, in line with other export markets, and was assembled from Knock-down kits at the Ford New Zealand assembly plant in Petone, Lower Hutt, North Island. The Petone plant had assembled Ford motor vehicles since 1936."

I found this one, it's a low Poly version, already uv-mapped more game friendly. Can send the model later in .gmt and correct scaled to a english gentlemam work on It.

I suppose a reworked Anglia roof could also be added to make the 315 Classic saloon scratch I'm sure some of those got raced back in the day Thinking

There are no limits to imagination.
There actually does exist a one-off Lotus Ford Consul Capri with the TwinCam engine.
This would guarantee the racing engine.

You can see one in "Week end", the 1967 Godard movie, along with a lot of interesting and rare cars (most of them wrecked)...
