New project. Flying car stops at an automated burger stand in the middle of the desert.

^, very much so. Considering the size are you going to make it an open top 'speedster' vehicle in the style of the Porsche 550?

Thanks tuna.

Sort of Mike. Sort of. Think even more retro. But that picture gives me some good ideas.

Updates. Still roughing it in. Very, very rough. Car proportions are still too bulky and rough.

OK. This one is going to take a while.

I already see where I need to rebuild entire sections.

Still pushing the proportions around. Have to get them right before I refine and "lock down" the geometry.

Definitely taking shape. Already looks as though it is hovering naturally as a flying car rather than not having been provided with wheels yet! Also, I wonder if it dips down when climbing in - rather like a rowing boat on the water?

No real change. The colors were distracting me.

A little more. Now it's shaping up.

More fiddling. Enough for now. I'm happy with the exterior. Time to start on the cockpit.

Thanks Dave!

Thanks pilou!

There will be more refinement of the exterior, but the overall shape and proportions are done.

Still fiddling. I also need to refine the windshield.

Thanks Mike.

Updates.

Notes: I keep having all kinds of problems with components and groups not lining up after using Curviloft to create skins. Just weird off axes and flat plane lines which forces me to have to remake the object several times before I can duplicate and flip component halves to form complete shapes.

What a pain. What should only take only 20-30 minutes takes an hour or more. And the misalignment of groups is so tiny I have to zoom into the limit to even see and fix them.

To simplify things a bit when I use this method is to divide the vahicle into three parts, left, right and centre. When I have both side where I want to go I take the bonnet half and create one set of arcs which I then curviloft as one piece which eliminates the rather obvious bum cheek effect I always got. I can demonstrate what I mean because pictures are simpler but waiting for a render to complete first. Intersect is flaky as ever so any holes need to be done by hand but can be done as short arcs and then flipped to create the full opening.

Good advice Mike. I also use a variation of that.

I think my problem is I am moving too fast and my PC cannot keep up and I am also inadvertently slightly moving objects and elements without realizing it.

I also have the problem of "snapping" seeing background points that mess up the alignments.

Still what used to take me weeks and months I can now do in days. I just need to be more patient when modeling.

Update.

I'm going to take a few days off from this and study it for a while.

While I like it overall, there is still something about it that I'm not quite sure of...

Damn. Preliminary renders look... bad. Raylectron does not like the geometry. It seems it will not render all the surface as smooth and is putting vertical lines on the middle of the side pods.

This is the first time I've ever seen that.

Based on your comments and my interest in being able to draw things at this level (I do not have your talent but would like to try to learn), but since I am retired I do not have the money for a bunch of plugins, I would to know what tools you use for drawing this kind of stuff. Do you use tools like SubD or Artisan or do you tools like Curviloft?

If you fo not use a bunch of "paid for" plugins, how Doyle accomplish the things you do? Cuould/would you share how you do the neat stuff you do?
