It's easy when you are too old to go out gallivanting with the boys all night. So I eat my dinner and head to my room and fire up the laptop. I almost never watch TV when I'm on the road, so what ever model I'm working on usually gets my full attention for a good while.

Doug, I'd like a tute on your cowl symmetry! How do you work on all those sides at the same time?!?!

Other than a few clean-ups, I think the 3D model is done. 12,200 polys so I'll also need C-Meshes.

Both of those areas have raised metal panels with hard edges right next to the dark places. Those areas should look fine on the final model, once I've cleaned it up.

I believe your the artist to watch. Very observant and proficient with detail. I owned this model as a 1/5th scale scale years ago and was going to make a stab at modeling it but it seems you have it covered. Great job!
