Default First car WIP

I don't usually post much around here...usually just lurk.. But i've been working on this car for the past 3 days on and off.. I've only used this program for the past 3weeks or so.. I would like to have a few critiques or just some opinions on how it is looking so far..... Thank you

For three weeks learning that is excellent! Have you used other 3D packages? Keep it up,

Mat.

Thanks for the compliments.. This is my first 3d package... I've just read a lot and played around with the program... This is the first project that i've actually undertook. Modelling is very tedious.. and my hat goes off to all you professional modelers out there...

Extra Information: I forgot to say that this is suppose to be a 300zx. And its made out of polygons.... Hopefully i'll begin adding the doors and other details today.... and post it later

maybe just a mesh or a low poly render
are you doing this in nurbs or polys?
the paint is pretty but dont get ahead of yourself, if you make a flat grey model look good it will look that much better fully textured.

leave the paint until you have the body 90% done at least i would suggest

the scoops in the front look a bit jagged and not straight, the air damn could use a bit more extruding and precision work to make the model look like right.

did you make that by projecting or filleting and triming nurbs? if so i think i have a similar problem to you which is the small spaces between the trimmed areas and the original areas. does anyone know how to fix this?
