Pontiac Firebird '77, 1/24

This is one of my all-time favorite cars. I haven't actually seen it in person yet, as there aren't many in central Europe, but on the photos, videos and even toys, it looks just fantastic.
I started the 3d model few years back actually. I mostly used a plastic model for reference, lot of photos from the net and videos help as well.
This is sort of a proof-of-concept test build. There are a lot of curved areas on the car and I wanted to see how they fit together and with how much curvature I can get away with.
There are some issues with the shape/proportions of which I'm aware (the front is too narrow for example) so I welcome your suggestions.

I have a few plastic kits of that Trans Am
I can take pics of them if wanted
unless you already have a few of the kits.
Looking good so far

Thanks guys, I'll continue refining it in a month or so.
blake7: that's a nice model. I'll try to focus more on the body shape, do multiple front end styles ('79 at least) and I don't feel like doing the interior (at least not yet), so mine will be quite different.
