Default NURBS Car - First attempt

I'm actually really happy with how this is turning out. The windows and the rest of the details need a lot of work but the overall shape is quite good i feel.

I think that the car is too square....something just looks off.

no way the TT is lovely!! each to their own I guess!

The wheel arches do need a bit of work and maybe the car does look a little square but it's not too square I think.

It's looking good, obviously there is still loads to do but you're getting there

I'll avoid taking a stance on the aesthetic qualities of the TT - the shape is not bad tho - I worked for 6 months in the Ingolstadt Audi factory ont he assembly line so I should have developed a fairly good eye

The fenders will take a fair bit of work to get the tangency right. Have you checked out the suburu nurbs car tutorial? I definitively reccomend it.
