BeyondVR [Add Friend]

Hi, my name is John Martzahn, alias BeyondVR.  I live in Davenport, Iowa, the largest community of an area known as the Quad Cities, straddling the Mississippi River.  I have been married to the same woman forever (since 1969; do the math).  I spotted Bryce 3D in late 1997, and got my first computer.  A few weeks later I bought Poser 2.  I was very happy creating 3D art, and I never planned to do any modeling, but...

I learned how to model using Anim8or, and still use it the most.  Anim8or is robust, and handles the large files I create easily.  It lacks many advanced tools, and I use Hexagon 2 and Shade 8 to supplement it.  I also have Carrara, and someday I'll open it ;)  For my Renderosity store I have created kitchen items and automotive tool sets, but my principal love is doing WW2 ships.  My WW2 Destroyer, the Bryce version of which I sold to DAZ3D, has become the most popular WW2 warship on the Web.  In the fall of 2007 I added the WW2 Battleship and the Liberty Ship.  I create many free addons for my models, and they are available at

I plan to start on the Japanese WW2 aircraft carrier Akagi in December of 2007.  I also have a light cruiser planned, and a PT-Boat.  What comes next is anyone's guess.  Thanks for stopping by!
