Iwanted to creatre a highly detailed car model of a Shelby. I started by making a set of blueprints to get all of the dimensions/proprtions correct. It is not too far along, but please let me know what you think.

Really nice modelling job coppolinop, its got the kind of detail you'd see in a manufacturers CAD drawing.


You could render this one in a production line scene ? Keep it up !

Thanks Kevjon, by the way nice job on the 262. I am a pilot, and a very good friend of mine purchased a 262 years ago. He had it disassembled and blueprinted, and now there are 6 brand new Me 262 plus the original. I had a chance to go to Texas with him to see them. They are truely beautiful. This web sit details the project.

Superb detailing, and I love the car. The reflections on the rear fender look a bit wobbly in the red render, but other than that, it looks flawless I look forward to seeing more.

I love how you're doing the whole frame of the car.

nice, finally get to see a modeled frame work for a car, its hard enough to obtain reference material, wish you luck on your progress.

Cool...very interesting. It will be great to see this beautiful looking aircraft take to the skies again. I used the stormbird site quite a bit for reference pictures on the making of my jet. Hope you get to fly in one at some stage.....would be a great thrill I'm sure.

I'll keep an eye out for updates on you mustang....its always good to watch a car model being taken to the next level of detail.....and there is much precision in your modelling. Great work so far.

Panik: Thanks. I really wanted to challenge myself on this one. Most of the work I do for my company is often cookie cutter and not challenging so I try to keep my skills sharp with some personal work.

AndrewHwang:Thanks. Yeah reference materails are a pain. I do have a slight advantage though, In a former life I was a body repairman in a Mustang restoration Shop in Connecticut so I have a good working knowledge of how all of the parts fit.

kevjon: I would love to fly one, but that probably will not happen- sadly, My freind who started the project was killed at our airport about six years ago when he crashed his vintage Sabre Jet and the project has changed hands financially and I do not know the new owners. Keep up the great work on your aircraft. I hope to model one soon.
