Excellent modelling and render, but maybe the front wheels are to big or to close to the car, the suspension has no space to work properly, and I’ve never seen a bump on the hood like that, and finally aren’t those air ducts in the back supossed to be for cars that have the engine in the back? …anyway I’m not a car expert, so don’t believe everything I say…"
The scoops in the back are fine I think, only the hood schoop should cut close to the window because that’s how it gets air, and it should cut at the window and now curve down, ya know? Other than that it’s great.
Agreed. I’ll elaborate from a car-geek perspective.
The cowl hood is shaped a little strange. If it’s a proper hood scoop, there should be an opening on the front of the raised area. If it’s a cowl induction hood then the raised area shouldn’t taper back down toward the windshield as the opening is on the back to exploit the high air pressure area where the hood and windshield meet. The only purpose a hood like this would serve is to add clearance to a tall intake manifold or air cleaner and that would starve the engine of air.
The front wheels need less a little less offset (tucked in a inch or two toward the chassis). Especially if you’re going to animate this, the body needs to be able to roll just a little bit when cornering (not much with ‘Eleanor’s’ beefed up suspension, but some) and the fender is going to dig right into the tire.
Something about the rendering of the front wheel seems a little off. Too shiny? Too much reflection map? I can’t quite put my finger on it.
The vents on the back are actually to channel air over the rear brakes for cooling purposes. Lots of front engined race and sports cars do this (look at the last two generations of corvettes).
All that said, the model looks really well built and the render quality is really great. And great choice of cars to build. Nice work!
There are a few areas that I think could use some work. The tires are a lower profile than what you have. Also, The area around the headlights is supposed to be more “sunken”. You can look at the picture I linked to and see what I’m talking about. This is looking good though!
