Speed Modeling Challenge #43 - Retro

Postby boofredlay » Wed Aug 03, 2011 7:54 pm

The theme for this challenge is "Retro"
Retro Gadgets (50-70 years of last century).

The recently modified rules are still fresh so please read them.



The Official SketchUcation Community Forum Modeling Challenge Rules:

For this challenge you will have 30 minutes maximum for modeling and texturing. Your time spent is on the honor system, if you cheat you are only cheating yourself.

You can use an unlimited amount of preparation time for thinking, sketching, researching, collecting textures or scratching your head but NOT FOR MODELING. Again, this is on the honor system.

From now on only one (1) entry will be allowed so choose you subject wisely and make it count. If you post up more than one entry everyone will notice and you will be publicly ridiculed.

For your submission please provide (1) a textured image as well as (2) a hidden line or xray/hidden line image so we can learn from your modeling techniques. The textured image will be used for the voting element of the challenge.

Please also be considerate to members with slower connections and submit a maximum 1000 x 800 pixel image. Again, public ridicule will ensue if you violate this and your image will be removed.

Your image is to be SketchUp output only please. Yes you can use the Styles with SketchUp; no you cannot post a rendering using Twilight, Thea, Vray etc…

Finally, as enthusiastic as some of you are about rendering and sharing please do not post any renderings in the gallery or post models in the component forums as they could solicit votes.


The community will vote for their favorite entry once the competition has ended and the winner will choose the next theme.

Have Fun!


Competition closes on August 20th at 2pm GMT

I know I am gonna regret this but. . .It's been a while since I have participated. I always bite off more than I can chew when it comes to this stuff.

This is a model of the 1960's era Polaroid "Swinger" Camera. It would should little BW shots. Priced to the Youth Market at about $19.95--my older sister had one of these. You squeeze and turn the red shutter button. It would say "YES" inside the view finder. .. which i couldn't finish by the way, and then you'd shoot. Pull the film and Voila. .. A picture! Sorry it's not done, but 30 minutes means 30 minutes.

EDIT . .. Stupid Pointless comment below. . .

as I remember. . .and remember that I was only 10 or so years old back then . . . :mrgreen:

I think you would squeeze and turn the red knob to adjust light settings. Polaroids were very sensitive to that stuff. It would say "YES" when there was enough light to shoot and ta-da! This was mostly to be used by all the fun swingin', groovin' kids at the beach or the amusement park. . .out doors so there was no flash. I think later versions came with an optional flash thing. Bulbs of course. :mrgreen:

Don't worry David, you're not the first man to have trouble understanding where to twiddle the little knob.

Technically it's a gadget holder. Doesn't matter what gender, the ultimate destination is held within.





I really think we need a "joke font" sometimes.

Missed the last one... Really nice theme... Here's my entry... Philco Predicta: Considered the most iconic TV design of all times with its swivel screen. Was launched in 1958 and discontinued in 1960 i think. Finding a working Predicta is very rare. Here's my attempt at it. The screen took most of the time. Just finished basic texturing. The image width is 800 but the height is 360 something...

Here's a throwback to the town of Bedrock. Used Artisan, FFD and Tools on Surface. 30 minutes. :D I had a lot more detail planned, but ran out of time.

Just for clarification, is there a definitive time period limit? What is something was first introduced in the early 1900's but continued in popularity throughout the century. Would that be a legitimate model?
