Nice work, looking forward to the release.
You didn't mention what you're using for your modeling (sketchup?) but you might be interested in this brand new release called Instant Object Suite. http://www.flight1.com/products.asp?product=insobjstu
According to the release video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XHk00epwLtQ one can use photos for texturing - might just be what your looking for ??. It has a 30 day money back and 30 day fully functional demo. Can't wait to try it out.
This neat little app could take freeware to a whole new level for those without the time/inclination to wrap their heads around GMAX or 3ds max.
