If you google on the title, I'm sure you'll find a picture I based this model on.
It's not a render of a modern new house, so I hope you can appreciate it.

It took me a day to 'build' the factory and 1 day to fill it with stuff and fine tuning the materials.

The VW bus is from the Podium Browser.

I like this.
I googled it. Is your image a composite of a few different factory images? I always love renders compared to real images - more specifically with how a prior construction render image gets built and then can be compared to the real life building. I should start a thread like that here. 
How did you deal with all the different erosion textures? Is this a fun piece (portfolio) or for work? If I recall, there may be a similar image in this forum but go back a bit. It may have just been a train station but similar and I believe it had a classic car.  

It's cool. Good job!

This one: http://supodiumforum.websitetoolbox.com/post/a-bygone-era-9464580?pid=1301733892 by Andrew Trodler.

He has done a few really good ones with that locomotive model he made.  Loved the lighting in that one!

This looks great Drawvois, really nice job on the modeling and all the extra care selecting good textures really pays off as jlo pointed out.

Coincidentally, I just saw that VW is bringing back the microbus with an electric version.  I think it's a months-old announcement, but new to me.

Thanks guys, [smile]
@Jlo,  For this model I used a lot from textures.com (Thanks Arqcova for the tip!)
You can find all kind of eroded material to use.
I used https://us.123rf.com/450wm/svedoliver/svedoliver1309/svedoliver130900105/22469635-industrial-interior-of-an-old-factory-building.jpg?ver=6 as a starting point. and added some windows.
It was a fun project. [wink]

@jlo,
I don't know how much you know about editing textures, but this is what I've done for the concrete columns at the bottom:
I use a PNG file for the smudges: 
  Knipsel-png.jpg
Inserted as a new layer over the concrete I want to use:
Knipsel2.jpg 
something like this:
Knipsel3.jpg 
and saved it as a new texture.
(I use Paint shop Pro for this kind of stuff.)

Little touches like this are the things that make good renders great! You can actually float your grime map over your main texture map in SU, as long as it's only 1-2mm away.

Just for Justin, this is what I'm saving up for [wink]

Cool! yeah, it was an experiment for me, using the decals, and as Big says, it easier just to float the transparent PNG on top of the column, BUT every method works I think this way the columns are textured with each face with that worked texture, great render man! I love aesthetics of factories.

Great use of texture and lighting creates a wonderful mood. Excellent image - and thoughtful discussion too.
