Very impressing stuff posted here.
I'm not a modeler, however I did fool around enough to make some prefabs in WorldCraft back in '99 - 00 for Half-Life
Think I did a radiator oven, a clock and a wannabe-hummer which I spent like weeks at. Also did a showcase map for an audition to a total conversion mod group. I'm sad I don't have anything I made anymore. Ten years worth of HDD crashes blabla..
Not touched any 3D-software until 2006 where I was fooling around in Blender trying to work things out. Eventually spurred a sci-fi kinda ship after a couple weeks haha. Oh the happy amateur. I haven't tried doing any modeling since.
Oh I think I made a sword hilt, too.. Can't find the pic anywhere tho.
