    Barn finds! Have you ever looked inside an abandoned garage or barn to find a rare and classic car? If not, make one! Livery and image by @syntex123 - (click for full-size)


    This Fortnight's Theme
    I must have seen a lot of restoration shows on Discovery Channel because this time I want to capture the essence of finding something rare where you wouldn't think anything else but junk would reside. We're talking rare barn finds. - But this time, let it rust! Let's hear what @syntex123 has to say:

    I love classic cars, there's something about seeing 40-year-old steel, the look, the sound, the smell.. But what if you saw a neglected one sitting in a garage full of junk? The car might be dusty, it might have some scratches, maybe some rust? There's no limit here. Make the car look old and forgotten.

    CARS:
    N class cars before 1989 only
    LIVERIES: Yes and no; if you want to do a classic race car, go for it. If you want a street car, go for it. As long as it looks forgotten.
    USER MADE DECALS: Allowed
    LOCATIONS: Shiretoko for the main pics, garage photo for the 1st bonus shot.
    UNIQUE RESTRICTIONS: Make use of decals that look like dust, rust, dirt or other decals. You can use as little or much as you want, but it should look like it's been standing on the same spot for years.

    You can also take two bonus images. One garage shot (where the car sits now), and one old image (with an appropriate "old" filter) showing it's last known location, with less dirt and wear on it than the livery you must enter.

    1) Choose the Shiretoko scape (found by searching all locations and refining by 'Japan'and 'Snow'):

    2) Apply the following settings:

    Camera

    Camera Settings

    Aperture: F 2.8
    Shutter Speed: 1/60 (as it's not a panning shot I don't know that this is important)
    Focus: Single AF

    Environment Settings
    Aspect: 16:9
    Orientation: Landscape
    Resolution: High

    Effects

    White Balance
    Temperature: 9800 K
    Colour Cast Correction: -0.060
    Exposure correction: EV +2.0

    Special Effects
    Chromatic Aberration: 5

    Screen Effect 1
    Mask: Background
    Filter: None
    Individual Colour Tone Correction:
    Saturation: 0
    Brightness: 50
    Contrast: 250
    Highlight: 100
    Midpoint Correction: 100
    Blackpoint Correction: -5

    Car Effects
    Filter: None
    Individual Colour Tone Correction:
    Saturation: 150
    Brightness: 75
    Contrast: 120
    Highlight: 500
    Midpoint Correction: 500
    Blackpoint Correction: 0

    3) Place your car in the middle of the scape at a suitable angle:

    View attachment 729371


    4) Zoom in to 102mm (certain cars may require more or less to fit in the viewfinder) and move the camera until you're happy that the car is centred in the shot:

    View attachment 729372


    5) Move the focus to the nearest corner of the car (I normally centre on the headlamp closest to the centre of the image) and take your shot.

    6) For a shot of the rear, go back to the Car tab and hit R2, switch to Camera and refocus (again I use the tail lamp nearest the centre) and take the shot. If the car has moved off-centre then move the viewfinder and adjust the zoom as you see fit.

    For new cars/liveries simply find the scape in your library and reopen and change the car, then rinse and repeat as above.

    The Crew(1/2) offers some decent looking scratches and dirt too, if that's of any interest for some.

    Wish I thought about this sooner. Oh well, it's not me who enters this one. I'm not satisfied at all with my example.

    Just for the sake of previews:

    Love this one! Just need to figure out a way to make rust/dust effect decals, I don't want to rely on community decals 100%...

    @BLiTZ actually made a good looking one using only the shapes that came with the game. So it’s definately doable without using too many SVGs or community decals for sure. :)

    Interesting theme, but if I see a Corvette with a crap ton of rust on the body I'm going to slap the person who made it.

    I've never really tried rust, or patina in a game, or on a model before. I may have to do some research on this one.

    This looks quite fun. I love rusted and busted, and I’m looking forward to this one.

    :lol: That’s funny. I only added rust on the chrome here and there, but I think I went too far. *self slap* ;)

    This is a great idea, not sure I have the skills to do this one justice though!

    @syntex123
    Regarding the criteria: CARS: N class cars before 1989 only

    I was just thinking about which cars are eligible, and came up with the following list of 15 cars:

    Alpine A110 1600S
    BMW M3
    Chevrolet Corvette C3
    De Tomaso Pantera
    Dodge Challenger R/T 1970
    Ferrari 512BB
    Fiat 500
    Ford GT40 Mk1
    Ford Mustang Mach 1
    Lamborghini Countach
    Lamborghini Miura
    Shelby Cobra
    Toyota 2000GT
    Toyota Supra 3.0 GT Turbo
    VW Sambabus

    What about the following?
    Is Chris Holstrom Concepts 1967 Chevy Nova 2013 eligible?

    I think the 1992 Ferrari F40 & 1990 Mazda RX7 should be allowed as both these cars were released before 1989.

    Although I don't have the skills to do justice to it, I would love for someone to attempt a barn find Audi Sport Quattro! I think that 200 Sport Quattro cars were manufactured - so a barn find is a possibility.

    Although the Ford GT40 Mk 1 is eligible, I agree that that Jaguar XJ13 and Ferrari P4 should not be. I think that there were only 4 P4s made, and no original XJ13 survives.

    I say no - the Nova has modern elements. Like if it was a barn find that was restored. Which is the opposite of the theme.

    The Skyline R32 also came out in 89 - but the models in-game are newer so they aren’t useable. Just because a car came out earlier doesn’t mean it’s newer version is the exact same, facelifts and whatnot. :)

    As long as they’re N class I’ve got no problem with it, as the idea is to recreate a classic race car if you wanted to.

    They are Gr.X anyways, so I agree as well on not having them available. :)

    That looks good, the exhaust imo looks a bit much though.

    If you want to, go ahead! :)

    Yeah, forgot to add some transparent decals on top to fade it a little. (Same on the bumpers) oh well, luckily it’s not an entry just an example.

    Too bad that some very important parts of the cars cannot be decorated, as the window panes, the lights and the wheels. So it will be a big challenge to create a perfect barnfind.

    Would‘ve made me go crazy on the drift car entry, as 90‘s JDM drifters had more than half of their windshield plastered with stickers :lol:

    This was the issue I found. Also matt finish decals have a habit of looking too satiny in scapes so my attempt just looked like a rusty turd rather than the dusty abandoned look I was aiming for. But it shows what can be achieved with just the game's own decals and gradient fades.

    It was purely an exercise in trying out a few techniques to help @syntex123 with this comp, I only spent a few hours trying out various ideas. If you took the time to make some custom decals and masks you could create some quite interesting results such as hand prints or more detailed scuffs.

    Indeed, your model is showing pretty well what can be achieved by the provided stuff. Not everyone has the tools and skills to create own graphic material, so I'd like to recommend a look at the user created content at gran-turismo.com. Some interesting decals to be checked out.

    You guys talking about hand prints has me think of doing something that could get the livery reported.
