Notice: Tesselation is set pretty high so render times may be relativly long. For faster renders on more distant shots lower the tesselation for the nurbs surfaces.
Update 2006. I updated the modell with new materials and some gadgets to Maya 7.01. It now renders with Mental Ray and looks much more photorealistic. I marked the new renders. The maya 5 version is still available too.
If you use the Maya 7 version, you need the bumpCombiner shader, which can be easily found on highend etc.
For nice reflections be sure to use a hdri or whitecards in your environment.
See the turntable animation in the downloadable files for a nice preview of the mental ray vespa.
