    This is my first ever car model. Don't have any experience with texturing so that will come last. I will probably finish the model then Jbeam first. I have read a bit on jbeam on the content creation wiki and I'll try my best to make a custom one that is realistic.

    Model: 85%
    Texture: 0%
    Jbeam: 10% ??
    Configurations: 0%

    -AutomobileZeitreise from Etsy scanned photographs of the official blue prints of the car that I am using for the 3 way views.

    Credits: None so far.


    The car is the first of the modern era Kadetts, after the 1930s Kadett. The car has a 1.0 Liter (993 cc) OHV engine producing 39 HP. A higher compression "S-motor" produces 46 HP.

    It has a RWD layout and monocoque structure. There were three body styles and one facelift. In 1962 there was only the two door saloon version with the Luxe and Standard trim. From March 1963 they offered a Car-A-Van estate version and in October 1963 a coupe version which had an upgraded front fascia and lower roofline.

    Currently I am working on the saloon version. Hopefully I will make the other versions eventually.

    The reason for you messages being marked spam-like is because this forum has had an issue with a wave of spam-bots recently.

    This model is well made, I like it.

    Looks like the miramar has a cooler brother in the works, for a first model I think that you have a ton of potential, keep up the great work and you will have a mod in the featured section in no time

    it looks very similar to the EJ and EH Holdens that were built here Australia, probably because it was based off them, I think

    Update: finished the shell of the car. Need to do drive train, suspension and interior now.

    @burilkovdeni I saw your pm but could not reply due to the anti spam. yes I will probably need help when comes time to jbeam but for now I will try to do most of it myself as I'm still trying to learn it.
