Default Project: Widebody tC

Well, I've been working on this for a few months... Mostly just planning. In the last few weeks, I've been trying to add putty to make the body look lower. It's not really going to be an extreme widebody, but kinda sorta.

Pix:


Still working on the front end:


This side needs more putty and needs to be sanded down:


This needs more putty and some more sanding:


The rear is almost done, still needs some more details.


Little problems on the edges, needs some putty work.

i think you should go for a more sculpted and realistic bodykit. the door lines seem too low and the thing looks to be a bit slab-sided.
but that's smooth work you have, and the sharp corners are nice.
the rear doesn't seem to need to be that low...it can probably do well with a sculpted diffuser and the sides with some kind of character lines to git it the depth it needs

I'm going to try for this sort of look:




I'll change some of it, but quite a few of the elements will stay.

well, that's a lot more curvy than the one you have right now. i think that look probably should be acheived by lowering the car body, then doing the modifications

Yeah... I did lower the body by 1-2 mm, and right now i'm working on puttying the body to make it look lower because simply lowering the body itself won't get rid of the tank like stock look.

*Double post... hehehe*

Ok... Time for a minor update.

Front is still undone XD


I got bored and wrote stuff on the masking tape


As you can see, the spoiler mount holes and where the plastic injection thingy have been filled in. Yup, it's going to be spoilerless.


The rear is being reshaped to be more accurate. Also, the little thingy on the bottom was taken off. I'm going to add some fin thingys and use .1 instead of .3 styrene:


Rear wheel arches have been puttyed to be more parallel to the ground (it's going to do something later...)


The front wheel wells have been puttied to be smaller so they'd look more natural:


This arch was a *****. The stupid putty didn't set as well as I thought. So I essentially destroyed it. I'm going to redo them later.



Well that's it. C&C

Since its summer vacation, started to putty again

Essentially, I started to throw on a bunch of putty for the front wheel wells and the side skirts so I could remold the wheel wells and make the side skirts parallel to the ground again. Also added putty on the bottom so I could recreate the door lines.










I'm going to have a lot of sanding to do for the future :'(

Thanks a bunch

I usually put it on in sausages unless if there is something needed on a flat surface (I usually just smear it on XD)

Did some more body work at one in the morning




On this side, there was some softish putty that wasn't mixed very well, so I got rid of it and smushed some more putty on that side.




Detail work and getting rid of some body lines:




Fixing some minor errors:




The holes weren't sanded down perfectly smooth and flat, so added some more putty there:




And I had some extra putty left over, so I made a smiley face




Now I have a lot of sanding to do :'(

*Ahh... A triple post >.<*

After some more late night sanding, I've gotten some of the thick putty sanded away.


Odd magazine ad fun




The right wheel well is pretty much finished. There's enough room for the wheel to move around when turning so I'm satisfied with it.




The left wheel well still needs work done:




I managed to sand down and smooth out some of the body lines:






I managed to sand down the bottom really flat since I rolled the car on some sand paper XD




I'm pretty satisfied with the right side. With the 1000 grit sand paper, it's pretty smooth. But the places where slapped the putty on it's not exactly done X(




The left side still needs lots of work.




That's it n_n C&C's please

I'm getting rid of most of the body lines, but I'll be etching the door panels and other random bits back in.

With around 3 hours of work (the styrene was a ***** trying to reshape, but I gave up so that solved that problem ), I managed to rough shape the front fenders. This is the only major difference between the 1:1 car.




I put the wheels the other way to see how it was like (not bad, not bad ). I'll probably start working on some widebody wheels soon.

Here's the right fender...




And the left fender...




And now the new paint scheme...
































































































Sharpie!

Naww, it's just to see what it looks like when the styrene and putty are all one color so I can shape the fenders better.

Small update:

Added/ sanded some putty so the front wheel wells would be smoother with the front end (and be more accurate to the 1:1 model)






And a photo of how far out the front wheel wells come out to the mirror.
