Planetary Rover

Project Info

Explore the captivating evolution of the Planetary Rover, initially conceived as a venture into modeling and kit bashing—a method designed for expediting intricate detailing. Witness the amalgamation of diverse vehicle models and the utilization of Andrew Averkin’s Hard Surface Kitbash Pack 01, resulting in the birth of an extraordinary planetary exploration vehicle.

The inspiration for the subsequent phases of the project was drawn from the insightful tutorial “Octane Mars Environment” by David Ariew of Arievvisuals. This comprehensive tutorial meticulously guides the creation of a fully detailed Martian environment from start to finish. A heartfelt acknowledgment to Mr. Davids for generously sharing his Photogrammetry Rock Pack Toolkit, enhancing the project with an extra layer of realism.
