Here is a side view (a poor resolution screen cap). Some details might be missing, but it gives you a better idea of real proportions. Let me know what you think.

The Graham-Paige has a very inspired design. It will be fun to compare my model once it is finished to other cars of the days.

Brilliant, Cami! Beautiful design. Can I suggest suicide doors, and perhaps some sort of chrome trim on the fenders. I'm thinking of the Automovil Moderno which had 3 chrome strips on each fender. One final thought: rather that having the tan color go straight across, what if it sloped down along the side in an arc, and then swooped up and over the rear fender. You are the designer, of course, and I'll be eager to build whatever your final product looks like.

I agree suicide doors would be nice and more chrome does seem period appropriate.

Suggestions are welcome guys! Here is another try. I had the suicide doors in mind, they are very appropriate for this one.

Nice, Cami. Visually, this scheme makes it look longer somehow, more European. Depending on what you're going for, this may, or may not be a good thing. Personally, I like the tan over brick red a little better. Looking at just the small thumbnail, the two tone appears a little choppy. What do you think of this...

By the way, I really like what you did with the tires and wheels. Very period looking treatment. You obviously put a lot of time in that small detail.

Trying to visualize it in 3D, I think I understand where you were going by leaving the upper half of the fenders and the hard cover spares in the top color. Maybe just coloring the rear fender skirts/spats with the lower color would smooth out the lines a bit

Thanks for your suggestions Don, I really appreciate the interest surrounding this project. There are unlimited possibilities for colors and trims, I do not know what it will look like in the end, but it is fun to play with them. Because it does not affect the design anyways, many variants could be released. We are only in the begin of a long process, but I am excited about what the final result will look like! The current wheels are the Cord's 16" rims and hubcaps.
