You're going to hate me for saying this again lol :blush: but I see some lumpiness around the headlights coming up into the hood. I really do hope you finish this one, even if you lose some interest along the way, stick with it, you'll be better off in the end. Keep truckin and have fun'

Apart from some of the shading looking strange, some areas just don't look like they "fit" together right.

i agree with gect , the edges dont look like there aligned in views that why its crumpled or could be tri or poly edges causeing it, any chance of some close up views? dont have to render it just a screeny with wire frames is cool we might be able to help more

also try using snap to grid for the middle seams that way when u mirror geomatry it wont split and peel down the middle of the car

other than that m8y it looks sweet loads better than mine lol

( that being said im new to modeling so im just puttin threw what ive learnt from other simplymaya users )) - )
