that's great.....not too my first car model by miles!

Is this spline work? -- Or is it sub-D ? I'll concur that it's probably better then anything I could do right now with cars. :)

Beats my first car to shame!!
The grille is very cool.

Couple easy things to fix: it looks like there's nothing inside the car looking through the grille in the 2nd shot. You could just throw a poly in there to be the engine block.
Also, is the license plate supposed to say something? What is it?

Again, very decent and good! :thumbsup:

Good eyes Cman.. The car is totally subpatch.. I tryed to put a texture on the license plate, but i have never tryed to texture anything, and after that attempt i never will again.:surprised.. I made this car from a box, and just bandsliced it to hell pushing and pulling points until i got the shape right.. i want to start another one, and try to add the interior to it... and make better tires for it... Thanks for the replies..

Looks like theres a serious gas guzzling engine under that hood. Would like to see more..Good one, especially for a first attempt.

Wow, love the style, it kind of retro but modern at the same time! Nice one!!

Wow, for a first car - well done :applause:

The only things that bother me is that firstly the car looks very slightly too matte in places, and secondly, it would have been better to model the bonnet of the car a little sharper - at the moment, the edges blend into the rest of the body too much. Defining that area a little more would be cool, but otherwise it's great :D

Those headlights are begging for some bump maps ;)

Thanks for the tips.. I was wondering how i could texture the headlights to get them to look realistic.. I will be updating this vehicle very soon.. I found out some pretty neat things that will make it look better... Wish me luck

Got kind of a low Key Dark Knight thing happening.

Can't wait to see what else you do with this.
