The headlights look good to me so far --- I suppose it depends on how they look when surfaced/rendered?

Thanks all for your comments.

Here is the original headlight :


And ... I'm actually rebuilding the biggest light so that it looks more like on the picture (larger and more rectangular shape).

@Dennis : for now the headlights look a bit non-realistic to me when rendered, but finding a good reflective metal and a good glass material (maybe associated with a noisy texture) will help. Well I hope

A major quality of a head light is its transparency and therefore I don't think an outside glass applied texture would ever look right form any angle (that is, but one) - what about modeling the inside and applying texture to those parts.

Question, Dennis: can you texture parts below a simi-transparent AC3D materal?

This is way beyond me, but just an idea.

Love your model - envy your talent!

An Edit - Sorry, looking back to recent post it appears that you are now modeling the inside - good luck with your efforts.

Absolutely --- I think luuckyy's doing his renders in POV-Ray, which should show them nicely after the "glass" has been set appropriately...

Now I'm happy with the headlights :

Cheers !
