Looks pretty cool so far. How come 1/2 of it is smoothed, and the other 1/2 isnt?

The back half is really smooth (where the seat is), and the front half has harder lines, almost like its unsmoothed. Is it supposed to look that way?

Yeah I see what you are getting at, my theory behind it would be this: the front is the engine housing so you'd want it to have accessible paneling to lift off for repair etc. Also Im thinking of the whole structure like that of those racing speed boats, very light yet fast. With some smooth angles and some not so.

The rear of this vehicle behind the seat is a fin with a ribbed rubberised cover to hide any innards.

I also wanted to put a big throbbing piece of machinery between my girl characters legs....

Cheers
Jay

Hey Guys

Many thanks...

Si....

Possibly, I may add it to the undercarriage, if not the top of the head rest is a good candidate, I'll have to see as Ive got this written in the opening of my project but not 'battle wise' as yet.

I have the design here on paper without any weapons and it looks good without them so maybe they can just be concealed

Cheers
Jay
