GrandeP: The cage is imo much better. Sometimes the blueprints don´t match, eg. I had this problem on the bmw, the side view of the front didn´t match with the top view. With the cage you avoid this problem as you have complete model, not only separate views, before actually modelling.
Also you can adjust the lines perfectly and they are mostly super smooth.
And for me the biggest advantage is the “unlimited” resolution. Let´s say you are using blueprints, there is a certain thickness of the line which increases as you zoom closer. Now what often happened to me as I layed down the vertices, was that as i zoomed closer (because i wanted it to be as accurate as possible) the line on bp grew thicker and thicker and i didnt know where to put the vertices, on the top of the line? in the middle? at the bottom? And now with the cage as you zoom in the thickness of the curve remains and you can place your vertices much accurately.
Now I´m going to seriously start modelling just the basic shape and see how it works. Next challenge for me is texturing as I have never done this before. Fingers crossed.
And guys, car modellers, i want your opinion. I´d like to sell this model on 3Dexport or similar, do you think it is legal to sell models that are based on actual cars? It is my work, I understand, but don´t I somehow steal someones work?
PS: I´ve gone a bit mad with the cage lol
The progress so far:
