..the front and side do not line up very well...Why don't you align them in something like Photoshop or Gimp?

i did align them in photoshop. they look great in photoshop and in maya until you start modeling.

your references seem fine to me... except the mirror is a bit off.

may b your approach of modeling is not suitable for this model?

That is why modeling is not easy.

This is pretty obvious but i'll throw it out there anyway: make sure your image planes have the same aspect ratio as the ref pics from PS.
