A bit of a project

10 posts in this topic

this is a little project i started to keep myself busy since ive been uninspired as of late... i took a 1:24 die cast of a 34 street rod i have and am trying to modernize it... while still keeping the feel of the design...

Posted Image

the front and side view at the very top are exact copies of the die cast... i drew them for reference...

the ones in the middle are the beginnings of trying to modernize it...

the 3/4 at the bottom was drawn in math class in like 10 minutes bcuz i was bored... that drawing actually gave me the idea for this...

any suggestions are welcome as this is a work in progress and im pretty much depending on you guys to help me get this how i want it

some progress (the maybach really helpe alot... thanks 68)

the 3/4 and the side view on the bottom are the same car... its getting really close to where i want it... keep commenting tho

Hmmmm.... well you've got the right idea.

The good news is that you didn;t make it look

like a PT cruiser, however it's still lokking very

muhc from the 1930s. I'm not sure if this will

help but I think you need to check out the

SIXTEEN concept. That car embidies elements

of the 1930s withouht looking retro at all.

The Maybach Excelero is another design that

captures the spirit of the 1930s without resorting

to blatant retro. :wub:

thats funny because my first thought was "PT Cruiser".

Remember how popular they were? Like there would be a fleet of them at every dang parade. At least that never happened with the "new beetle"

(I do like your drawing though)
