Yet another unfortunate victim if melted-wax syndrome. We really should start a fund.

the shape is instantly recognizable but like mr vibrant said up there, it's pretty melted.

Okay, thank you both for your crits but I'm not sure what you mean, though, by molten. Is it referring to over-turbosmoothed edges? or wonky pannels? Or not enough depth to the shell? Help.

Note: I'm using 2 iterations of turbosmooth. Should I only be using one? Also I've got a shell modifier on most panels which rounds the edges (with turbosmooth on), should I dump the shell and do it manually?

Real Car:

Melted Car:

by "melted", we mean it looks akin to if you made the same model in wax, and then melted it.

There's plenty to crit here, but mostly just look at these two pictures side by side, and keep working on yours until it matches the real one. That's honestly the best advice I can give. Don't be afraid to start over once you've finished. Sometimes it can take several tries in the beginning to get things right.

Thank you, I see where you're coming from now. Great reference picture, will study it and post my results.

Well this hurt. But like they say with a band-aid, best to rip it off. Probably will have to do some more ripping, will need a scotch first.

Looking much better this second go around. Keep taking your time and making sure an area is perfect before you move on.

Thank you both of you. I've had a nightmare trying to get the model to match the reference pictures at the back and still match the ref you posted here... until I realised that there are a couple of different models of this car. [Hit my head]. Live and learn.

you've got a ways to go before you should really start worrying about materials.

I'm mucking around with rendering and photoshopping now. I would much rather integrate the model into a photo. Guess I'm going to have to learn how.
