LOL I was teasing
I knew it, lol!

Anyway, right know I'm switching gears from detailing to more body work. I did a poly smooth test the other day, and ran into some minor problems that I thought might happen. So I am having to go back and remodel some features separately that were originally part of the main mesh. Everything will still look the way I want in the end.

I will post a WIP when I have the problem worked out.

Ok, here is what I have so far. Haven't been able to do too much throughout the week, but will have alot more done this weekend. I still don't know if I can finish this by deadline. I have tons to do on the interior and haven't even done anything underneath yet, and that doesn't even include the wheels, which I haven't even started yet.

Me to. It's basically detail work from here on out, so I'm hoping 3 days is enough time. I'm also hoping to do a little texture work also.

Cheers Bullet!

Looking very nice THX, I'm liking the shapes you have in there. I really hope you manage to get at least the modelling finished on time. Good luck mate!

Cheers Dango! Sorry if I haven't commented on your entry. I have seen it progress and it look pretty awesome!

Anyway, the basic modeling is complete. It's all the extra tid-bit's and add-on's thats going to wind up taking the most time.

Yes, it a futuristic car. It's a spinner car, based from ones made for the movie Blade Runner (circa 1982. ) There where actually 4 different ones made. The Police spinner, the Lobster spinner ( which is a Taxi ), The Alfa Romeo ( which is supposed to be the Ferrari of the spinners ), and the Truck Spinner. Mine is of my own design.

Thanks for the support, cheers!
