Arrow Ford Escort Mk II

Hey there
I thought I might start this as a personal learning project, and see how far it goes
I have a bonnet so far (WOW! )
Will post some images when i get at least a fender done.
I hope the BPs and references are nice to me hehe.







Edit: Fender is almost done,things are looking bright.

no it isnt, it just something I'm doing by myself, to figure out everything myself
I feel I learn better that way.
Im Just contemplating what to do next on it, weather to extrude the bonnet faces across to do the fenders or not. Should be fun.

Few more shots to show off, only tweaking needs to be done on the fender to match up with the bonnet now (I think), then its on to figuring out how to curve it into what is the front bumper of the car.

Pretty neat mate...you have a few triangles in there...try to keep them to a minimum or in hidden areas. The bonnet doesnt quite match?? how does it look when you smooth preview?

cheers bullet

Update for everyone ^^
Hope you have/had a good new year so far... As for this escort, Im making all the basic shapes of the roof, rear, doors etc and going to add more res to them one by one. Who knows, might end up being an escort concept..
