Default Corrado!!!

OK guys you talked me into making a Corrado body for your class but I really need your help I need pictures of the side view and front and rear! The ones you sent me are great but I'm having a hard time proportioning it. This is a very rough draft

Yep, I want too !!!

And I really appreciate you go against the mainstream, where you cant tell the difference between a Volvo, Mazda or Stratus !!!

I also like seeing a body, which aint too mainstream.

Too long. Its a hatch back, so no trunk and it looks like it has one. Good start though.

Sorry for the nitpicking. To tell the truth, this mockup reminds me more of an Ford Escort MK2 modified for rally or a Toyota MR2 than a Corrado. But you're getting closer, just couple of hundred more hours and you'll be there, I don't think you'll need 1500 on this body.
IMHO:
The front is too rounded.
The scoop on the hood is too much of a,,, scoop.
The air intake at the sides is also,,, .
The rear window should be flatter.
The line from the front of the hood, under the windows to the rear is too straight and flat.
The rear spoiler is too big.
The front spoiler is too close to the wheels, needs more front overhang.
The wheelwells are too big, but they have to be.
The rear should be straighter and the lightcluster doesn't look right.
Here is another side view from slightly different angle. http://www.vw-club.ru/vw/gallery/cor...o_VR6_1992.jpg
Keep it up.
EOR.
