Ford GT 3D Car Modeling Tutorial

Learn to model a fully detailed High Poly Ford GT, all videos will be available for free on YouTube, stay tuned for more!

Welcome to my Ford GT 3D Tutorial. This is quite an advanced level tutorials as the Ford GT body has a very complex design. This Tutorial series will be looking at the tools and techniques required to create a high poly, fully realized Ford GT. The series uses Autodesk May to complete the vehicle however, any 3D software will allow you to achieve the same result just using different tools with a different interface. I have attached all the files needed to get started, ready formatted to import straight into your 3D package.
