Been doing a little more on the surface mesh details and the car is starting to take a better form than before. This is just a quick pic from tonights work and will fix it up in a little more detail tomorrow.

A little more work on the cannopy section still very crude but I think it is looking a bit better and will give me a little more headroom that was needed.

I have been working in the surface modelling of the cannopy to give more head room and I can finally say I am now happy and will now continue with the final stages of the surface modelling. The model has come a long way and is now constructed from simpler profiles that should make the process of forming the buck a little simpler.

Here is the latest of the cannopy

At the moment I'm trying to acquire a CNC machine to machine things just like that :)

Well dude I acquired the CNC :)
As I see you have started already my offer of you buy the foam and ill mill it for free seems to be pointless :/

Sorry Canberra was not ever aware the offer was on the table as your last post just mentioned that you were looking to purchase a CNC.

I may well need someone to assist but not sure of the practicality as you are not in QLD correct?

I am now working with some construction lines to take some of the sharp edges off the car. Putting an initial chamfer on the wheel guards as the starting point and hopefull the current construction lines will yield an interesting body shape. Hopefull post a few more images as I get a handle on the shape.

I thought it was about time to start putting some rims on the model so have started this evening to work on the layout. Hope to have it finished by tomorrow. Will post some of the models in here.

I have done a little more on the front section of the car. Am now starting to add into the model some of the other components as the body work is giving me a headache. I think after the first prototype I will have to get an industrial designer to tidy things up as it seems to be beyone me at present.
