Hi all, I decided to try and create an Australian car so heres the result so far. I had No blueprints either so the proportions will be a bit of. Please let me know what you think of it so far.

Dunno what car this is supposed to be, but it looks good so far.
Just one thing, the reflection at the top edge of the front window looks kinda strange, but beside that, well done:-)
I think this is what he meant. The car looks great! I love the front and the windows. However, the doors need some work and bring out the wheel arches a bit. Very clean model!

Yay an Australian car. I'm a Holden man myself... but good job

Thanks for the replys.
Trex2001 - thanks and i will try and fix that reflection prob soon :)
SNap007be- Yep thats the car except im doing a different version, I agree about the doors but im not sure what to change :( any Ideas? And your right the wheel archs do need to be brought out.
Mystikos- I was a holden man (I own a VS commodore)but the BA ford does look better then the VY commodore IMO, I think thats a good thing though now holden has some real competition :)

true... I do like the look of the new falcon. Its more versatile, like it looks great as the XR6/8/FPV GT and stuff, but the stock model with those ugly hubcaps looks fine too. It's something that the Commodore lacks. If you look at the base model Commodore its quite fugly IMHO.
anyway, nice model. You're doing really well for no blueprints. Just a few nitpicks:
- The front indicator (there's just a funny little reflection problem)
- the windows looka bit... puffy
otherwise good, I love the front spoiler

Aussie Aussie Aussie............
I've been searching high and low for some falcon blueprints.
I want to model an old XD Falcon & an old GTHO Phase III.
I'll keep looking, and send u the blueprints if I find em.
Ford certainly do make a far more superior car to those limp wristed holden fags. J/K :p
Dont want to start a war, coz I know holden/ford is a sensitive subject in oz!
Keep it up bro.... U should make it one of those XR6 turbos.
I love those!

Mystikos - thanks for pointing out the "puffy windows" lol ill fix them in my next update :) Also i still havnt actually put a blinker section in the front lights, hopefully once i do that it will look better.
Honki- lol I thought this thread might turn into the traditional ford/holden battle :)
Heres another update, added door handles, spoiler and a side strip. Let me know your opinions :)

It's definetely getting better, but tae a lot at this pic:
looking good, but along the doorline, it looks like the side curves a lot more, your side looks completely flat. I can make a drawing when i get home if you like :)

Here, I've drawn a diagram. I don't know if its the indicator part of the light... oh well; you'll get the picture.

Great work, you have inspired me. I think I might model the new Monaro. What part of Oz you live in?

Hagar - Cool it would be good to see how you model the manaro :), Im from Ballarat in Victoria
