Armored Bulldozer

Armored Bulldozer

This thing is a high detailed model of a vehicle you don't see every day. Being interested in fascinating vehicles like this kind, I tried to push it as far as I could with the modeling and texturing. Based on the real thing used by the IDF (Israel Defence Force) using their heavier armor on the front blade cylinders. I had to add a winch to it, because no bulldozer is complete without one of those. With this guy in your scene you can be sure your render will grab some attention. 

The original Gimp xcf files are included with the model. This will make it so much easier for you to make your own edits to the textures. All elements are kept on a separate layer, so you can change, for example, the yellow base color or the scratches or the dirt without affecting anything else. The materials are set up for LuxRender but since almost all objects use textures you can easily change the materials to fit your render engine. Please see the documentation on how the materials are set up.
