This is just a scrap - it's a rocket model I started last Spring, and over the last few days I've been texturing it and adding more retro-futuristic goodness to it. It's very nearly done; I want to think about making some texture changes to the steering column and wheel - which you don't get much of a view of here - but it's just about where it wants to be.
I had to figure out what to call it as soon as I needed to save the file, and it just seemed to me that if the Auburn automobile company hadn't gone out of business during the Great Depression - when their fantastic but expensive cars wouldn't sell - they might have ended up making something more or less like this in that future that didn't get here anyway. I based the emblem on the radiator badge of an actual Auburn Beauty-Six, which honestly, I couldn't identify myself. The car of theirs that always comes to mind is the Boattail Speedster, which was about as close to this vehicle as the era would permit. There's an Auburn-Cord-Deusenberg museum in Indiana. I drove past the signs pretty late at night during an interstate move, and I'm thinking I'd like to go back to see it.
All modeled n 3DS Max; textures in Photoshop.
