Working on a vertical boiler/engine setup for a 3d model...
Same engine mesh, just differing textures. Thought I could do
a "maker's showroom" and "in the wilds" versions...
Still have to texture the guage faces, and some otehr details..
So? Dirty or clean?

I like the green, can you take that one and dirty it up?

I'd say a 3:7 blend. Mostly green but a bit of grime never did any one any harm.

Dirty is cool, but I think the instruments need some brass showing through the dirt.

I agree with the first few responses. Green, with a nice layer of dirt and rust. It would just give it more character.

Also it all depends on the history of the machine? Is it a brand new construction? Is it an ancient relic?

Well, thanks for all the suggestions.. Looks like the final vehicle will probably be seen in three separate shots..
- New, shiny and clean in the yard of "Professor Roger Billingsgate-Smythe's Engineworks and Foundry"
- Sightly grimy, but still in decent nick, on field trials in the Fothergate Moor and Fens -"Stone the crows, it don't 'alf pull, by crikey""
- and a bit worse for wear, but running, on exploration in the deepest wilds of either Madagascar, or other points hitherto unknown.

Sound like a plan, wot?

depends on what this is for.

if it were my machine, i would like it clean.  If it is something I find and can clean up, I want it dirty (so nobody else knows what it is)

and mayhaps some chips and scratches in the paint.
