Mercedes SLS AMG

I've been working on this on and off for about a month. The wheels are a place holder from another project, they will be replaced. Crits and comments most welcome. Thanks for viewing.

This looks like a very good model. But if there are any issues it's hard to see at this resolution. Also it would be nice if you posted wires. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks Scote, fixed some of the triangles. Here's a another view need to tighten up the seams. Next I'll work on the side view mirrors.

Added side mirrors, some depth to the doors and tightened up a few more details.

Been working on the tires and wheels. The tires that were placeholders I did with displacement and took longer to render. Still need to add side wall type and other stuff, but that can wait till tomorrow. Thanks for looking.

I think you should try to copy and paste image into your prefered photomanipulation program and then adjust contrast/brightness to maximize the amount of depth in order to see bumps into the model.

The bumps I have spotted would be.
Front bumper
A)Two bumps near the left corner of the headlight from the side profile you shown.
B)Two bump between the hole below the headlight and the wheel arches.

As for the side
A)The bump on the right corner of the door or the area.

I personally hate to work with polygons when it comes to working with cars, I spend months taking pictures and adjusting brightness/contrast and editing vertexs and applying meshsmooth preview to minimalize the amount of bumps. I switched to another program similar to aliastudio in some way to do car works because of the very issue.

Nice model overall. I think the head lights' edge near the air intake grill needs to be slightly sharper and bottom corners of the grill needs to be more rounder. You should post this on http://www.smcars.net/ as you will get more help from those people who models cars specifically.

Keep it up!

Thanks Stylized, Dillster, Xtrm3D and F1reH3wk. I also have this posted on smcars and they are very helpful. I will post an update as soon as I finish the corrections that smcars suggested.
