Finalising the exterior 3D model
Now it’s time for the fun part: adding those all-important details. For me this is just finalising and polishing every element, and making things align so that the lines flow better over the design. This is a very organic and personal process. The key thing to keep in mind is to refine rather than radically alter the design. However, sometimes you’ll need more bolts, vents, cables, support frames and so on, to make your model look more realistic. Study your references carefully and see how similar designs work in the real world.
