Update. I've finished the body with the exception of a couple of cut ins on the rear deck. Work has started on both interior and exterior trim I intend to repair the body issues at the headlight area and rear brake intake after I use 1 iteration of smoothing for my final smooth renders. The headlight lenses are temps as are any textures. The render is done with Mentalray in a studio box using two directional lights.
sweet lord! how can I possibly compete with this... I am looking for the worship smiley right now. seriously.. this model just breathes motor sports! *one little thing that I noticed though, where the windshield is riveted to the body the sheet metal seems to be a little bit thin.*
Update. Now that the dash cowl has been elevated the body is complete. The dash modelling is nearly done. I put in a couple hours on the tire. The tread is a little smooth when viewed close up however I find this helps with specular definition from more than four or five scale feet away. The rims are temps I imported from a 53 Allard 2JX I did a while back.
tom120934; A friend of mine got engaged Wednesday. I told her that her diamond looks really nice for something thats over 50 million years old. Although I have no intention of defining the hundreds of dings and scratches evident in my ref images. I do intend to dedicate a lot of time on my textures. Thanks for your imput.
Synetearis; Thanks for your complement. I have doubled the thickness of the sheet metal at the glass. Your observations are very much appreciated. Thanks.
