I've always wanted to model a car.
Here is my first attempt.
There are a lot of you out there that have done this before so let me know what you think so far.

Looking like good star but i'am hope that you still have SubD (metaNurbs - before TAB key) version ??' You don't need to frezze polys in Lw7 so i suggest that you try with that version.

Never used LW, but I know it is perfectly capable of car modelling so keep up the good work and I am sure it will look great.

Viper right? GTS?

Thanks for the replies.
You're right FrageNSTEIN. It's a Viper GTS Coupe, one of my favorite cars.

Here's an update. Still working on getting the details.
I have some concerns about adding the windows/lights. What do you guys suggest? Should I use maps or geometry?

Needs a little sharpening in areas, but overall looks very good! As for the lights, I would model all the parts, it will make for a much more believable end product IMO. Keep us posted as you progress.:)

I split the shell in half and seperated each piece. Still working on smoothing everything out and adding the detail.

I have a question for all you car lovers out there. I found a forum a while back for 3d cars and now I've lost the address. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

Smedly, check out the member profile for eighthdecay (or dec@y) not sure how he spells it. He has a forum he runs with all 3d cars, don't know if that's the 1 you're talking about, but it's a start!:)
