generally, when you use subpatching, the MORE polygons you have the less rounded the model will get, unless you round out the polygons yourself. I see that the polygons in the middle area are all parallel to each other. You will need to make a rounder shape out of the polygons and the subpatching more or less works around it. If you dont understand what I mean just hollar ;)

I understand what you mean but the more ploy's the less round, but i dont understand how i would fix this model.

take the middle-most polys and move them out a little, then take the end-most polys and move them in a little

if you have winzip you can attach it as a .zip file, if not, my e-mail address is [email protected], and i'm on MSN Messenger, so you can send it like that or just e-mail ;)
