Had an old cockpit and wheels I made from another project that I am using for interior and exterior scale.

That's a very sharp concept you have there, the narrower rear track will make it go-kart fast in the turning stakes. :thumb: :thumb:

A little more. Mostly working on the side and top.

I'll start of the rear next and then finished the front end last.

More rear end details.

But nothing is set in stone right now. You will also notice some more side refinement near the front fender.

I can't believe I've gotten this far in just 3 days! Just a few years ago this would have taken me weeks to months.

I should note that I had made the wheels last year and the cockpit I made was an aircraft design I was working on 3 years ago.

Still, I can't believe how fast I'm making the body.

I can't stop playing with it.

I did not like the rear. This is better.

All the hidden geometry. Lots and lot of triangles.

Also started on the front end.

Fiddle, fiddle, fiddle. I just can't do a little. :mrgreen:

Adjusting proportions and adding details.

I think you are going about it the right way, slowly adding things until it feels 'right' for you. If it's worth anything, I would have one. :knockout: :thumb:

Still working out the front end.

Widened the roof pillar. Hid some more lines. Changed the side window back to the other shape.

Didn't like it so I simplified it again.

I kind of like this front end. Maybe a little more refinement, but it's very close.

While the blue looks fine to me, given the style of the car I would expect for it to have a little more of a spaceship look. This might be more obvious in a rendered view, Again JMO.

I should also mention though that I think the design of the car is really neat, eye catching and something that Elan Musk might be interested in building. :thumb: :thumb:

Thanks! I'm not set on any particular color.

Most spaceships are white, which works as well.

So, white?
