Very good for a first try. I would make it a tad wider ;)

Put some few details into it and render it using Art.

Thanks for the feedback. I was going to keep going and add some more detail, but I decided that I would probably be better off to start over using what I had learned on this one to create something better. It probably took me about 2-3 hours but I really learned a lot and could probably do it again in about 20 mins :P

Learning by trying is the real trick in this program... This is a good little "first ever" model.

I know that every time I start something I learn some new technique just by experimenting, and then end up many times starting over and making something a little better than the previous attempt.

I look forward to seeing your rework, because I think it'd be cool to compare it with the first, and make for a more meaningful display of "see what I learned?"

Well, the roads looking more defined now from the rest of the land, although I'd suggest you scale down the texture or using a higher quality texture, this will get rid of the pixilation for you.
But, this is very good for a first model!

Ya, I just took 4 seconds yesterday (Plus the 10 minutes waiting for it to render :P) and changed the material on the wheels and rad support to chrome and re-rendered it using ART
