Hello, I'm back for this year's challenge!

Last year I did the 80's style supercar of my own design.

This time I'll move further to the history, and picked a wild concept car from the end of 60´s - The Alfa Romeo Carabo.

I haven't seen many models of it, but managed to find a very decent set of blueprints, and a lot of reference pictures (usually hard to find on some concept cars).

Some ideas of where and how the car will be placed, but I will progress further on it as I did last time. As of now I'm thinking of placing the car into the future - since it was a very futuristic car when it was designed, and still is.

Not much for the first day, but it's a start.

Blueprints setup, measurements checked.

Mockup tires, and basic mesh started.

So very little progress, I'm having trouble in finding energy to concentrate on modeling.

Baby steps forward, refining some edges and trying to get the main shape locked down.

I've been inactive for a long time, I might not have enough time and energy to finish this. But I have not given up just yet.

So, some progress again - sharpening shapes, adding details and tweaking topology.

Steps forward, cut the front panel, tweaked many places and adjusted a-pillar curvature etc. sharpening.

I think I'm not doing as clean modeling as usual, since this is getting very tight on time. Most likely I need to do the interior in very simple way too.

Some work again, modeled wheels with more detail, cut door panels, refined front cooling vents, cleaned up things here and added detail/loops in some places.

Does not look like much, but a lot of refining, simple interior added, panel thicknesses added, rear fender detail improved, and a lot of small steps here and there.
