I took the liberty of posting five pictures of this car under 1:1 photos.  I'm hoping Mr. Boyer allows himself to modify the original design, or perhaps cast his model and then modify it.  From the craftmanship exhibited so far, I'd guess he can improve this design.  I'd suggest a fastback (of course) to help balance the heavy front.  Also, I'd lower the tail light panel to lessen the rump-up look.  The fangs are over the top in my opinion, and I might do a flush grille with a concave bar painted black across the middle.  Just some thoughts.  Beautiful work so far.

I am speechless looking at your amazing talents Christian.

 

All I can say is I can't wait to see more.

 

And for what it is worth, I like the wheels and tires on it.

hi Guys :)

 

i try to answer to all your questions :

 

@BKcustoms : i work mainly with tool fitted on dremel (i don"t know the word), scalpel, cutter and sand paper.

@ajshot58 : front bonnet will not open, so no detailled engine.

@sportandmiah : i use "sintofer" polyester bi components putty. the one i use is "soft", easier to sand.

@GerN : youre right, my shape is not accurate, i took liberty to modifie the original design, because  what i prefer on this project is the front. i don' like a lot the hard top and the tail, to short for my sense. however i don't know if my design will look better.... ^_^  

@many : i know that wheels looks a bit too big, but i haven't better in my stock. i have got some pegasus wheels, the rear one could fit, but the front are to small !

Really nice so far, but you could have probably save a LOT of putty if you had used a few Viper parts in the build, there is a lot of lines that closely resemble a Viper in there.

I think you're an excellent sculptor. Perhaps you could raise the wheel wells a couple mm ? I think the tires & wheels are fine but the ride height is maybe a bit high ? Fantastic work any way you look at it !

Fantastic demonstration of scupture. My favorite part of model car building is building a car that does not exist in kit form.

When I seen the pics of the car I thought "Man thats Ugly"  seeing your build tho I don't get that I think you have refined the idea and made it presentable. So far your build looks great

Doug (sportandmiah)... What he is using is comparable to Evercoat Polyester 2 part filler that you can get at almost every Body Shop supply House... I hope this helps you out...

Wow! I'm really impressed whit this build! Take a model body and give it a totally new shape as you do implies a big amount of skills and imagination!

Wow Christian! I am just blown away at the pictures of the body in paint. It looks like a freshly painted body right out of the box! Just amazing work! You are a true inspiration on my next build. (Prowler into Stiletto.)
