First off, very cool concept there RC. It seems to me though that your model is slightly out of proportion when looking at the reference. I think you need to scale down the top part of your bus (sorry.....'chickenmobile') because the roof is too high at the moment.

Also, this thing could seriously benefit from a new body kit in some areas, like nonclemente was saying. Such as maybe some intakes on the bonnet (or hood for all you yanks out there ) or even part of the engine sticking out the bonnet a la 'Fast and the Furious' style.

Thanks The tires are made out of polygons and the actual threads have been done using displacment maps. This was my first attempt at displacment mapping, what a pain :angry:
Anyway I decided to redo the tires:
