z3r0 d: Its rounded at the front and boxy at the back because thats the way i designed it - i like the ‘boxy’ look of the 205Gti, but think a more fluid front is nice, so i kind of slapped them together to see how such a car would look.
I’m not out to win any design awards with this one, just toying with an idea.
Yes the folds in the front spoiler will be resolved - I havent yet got to the point where i have joined the two halves into a full mesh, so there is a lot of tweaking still to do, especially where the profile of the center portion of the car is concerned.
Also, the entire side of the car is still almost completely vertically straight - This is usually the last thing about a car that i modify since it is difficult to manage mesh smoothness after you put in those curves.
Hoagies: yeah the ‘black thing’ is just a plane (which when mirrored and joined with the rest of the mirrored half-meshes gets subdivided) to prevent you from seeing through to the empty engine bay. This space will be stuffed full of intercooler/oil cooler when i have done more work
The lights have come out quite nicely - they are pretty simple, just a low poly ‘tray’ so you dont see the blackness of the empty mesh interior and some faceted half spheres covered with a transparent (but slightly reflective) subdiv-ed cover piece. The tray and faceted reflectors all use the same ‘chrome’ texture.
