Nice, if a little shiny. Personally i'd dull the grey a little.

IMO you're gonna want to tone down the refraction and put in some actual diffuse / normal map detail there.
As it stands it reminds me too much of a piece of interestingly shaped colored porcelaine you might find at a novelty shop
If you removed the refractive shader you'd be looking at a pretty bland model.
Don't mean to be a downer, but you definitely will want to revise that before putting it in game.

Kaos is right, its waaaay too shiny.
imho only the orange and blue parts should be shiny, the rest not.

There are no hard edges, it looks like a big plastic toy. The render job is good with the reflections but it hides all the major faults of the actual model.

"Just checked your images section - the in-game one looks a TON better Razz \:P"

that one is actually the one used in the leak, its not the same one that they have posted on this news post. So yeah, the shiney one is the new one.

I suggest toning down the shineyness and work up on the textures a bit- the textures are a bit dull

THe on ehere is not the one from the leak, doesn't even look the same. The one from the leak is the one that is attached to the jeep (just with a handle)

This is a WIP so the texture is still coming along. Right there is an early shot, and in game, with normal maps it will really look good. This is more to show off the acutal model then the texture,

Siosphere.com //No texture, un rendered, low poly

Sweet model. However I would have to say its way to shiney as well. Looks like its made out of plastic.
