Great job, will you do an interior?

not bad at all, wires look clean :thumbsup:

Thanks people!...I think I'll do a very simple interior to be viewed from outside...No one noticed there's no petrol cap, including myself LOL...

I guess i'm in the wrong gallery...its still a work in progress....oops.

I do love those wireframe renders, the front headlights look wonderful !!

Thanks Kuzey :thumbsup:. I try hard to get polys clean, and as few as possible.

I've added in a basic interior, and fixed up a few things. 102 Hours all up, 20-30 more than necessary...took lots of time on the wheels...now they can be made heaps faster.

I'm very happy with the results :D

How did you add the gas/petrol cap? Did you freeze that part of the mesh?

Hey Phil, Theres no freezing ( check the wire ) theres a little trick i learn't from some video tutes.. I'll make a small video tute if you like (i'm sure you do)....way too hard to explain with text..

Oh sorry I guess I was typing that while you posted the wires, sure if you'd be willing to make a tutorial that would be great. I will need to do that on my Audi model.

No problems Phil....i'll get it up asap.

This technique allows you to make any kind of hole, door handle scoop, petrol/gas cap etc and still conform to the shape around it...its very simple to do once you SEE it done and you'll remember it forever!

Yeah thanks, In that case I'll be needing it for my door handles too, I was wondering how I would do those.

Ok people, here's the Gas/Petrol Cap tutorial (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=McfogXxfPq8). Let me know if its ok. Hopefully there's enough info....make sure you watch the 480 or 720p version.
