chazcron's 3D model work in progress
 
I bit the bullet and subscribed to my old Animation:Master 3D modeling program. I've started the arduous task of rotoscoping my splines over the spy shots. I'm going with my gut on the scoop shape. It may be way off, but I like it. Be prepared, when I render with my own modeled wheels, I'll be using the ones I made for the '15 Mustang for now.

^^^ Not exactly what I believe will happen but I really like this. Very excellent work!!

How come your scoop don't match the camo scoop? It's way off from the camo, to your version.

i feel like I have been waiting my whole life for a nice “scoop”

chazcron, you are an amazing talent. I love what you are doing. Take all the artistic license you wish, for other than GM, none of us definitively know what the scoop is going to look like. What you have is really good looking.

Thank you very much!

I look forward to your work in progress continuing.

Awesome! I look forward to watching your progress, chazcron.

Because the camo scoop is just that -- camo. It's hiding the real shape.

Notice how the camo appears to be tacked-on? Do you see the underlying shape it's hiding?

Here's an early photo of the one of the mules that was published in May, 2018. I noticed the shape of the scoop under the fabric camo, so I adjusted the brightness and contrast to highlight the details.

Here's the same photo with an outline added to highlight the lines.

The effort you are doing here is really good. Keep it up! I like how that at “A” you added a secondary character detail line to the scoop adding depth, which I hope happens. But as it transitions to the upper end at “B” on the door it does not have what we’ve seen by evidence. The ability to reach under the door scoop end to activate the suspected hidden door release. I trust you can fix that. :flag:

I agree CJ and I believe the scoop may come from the secondary line on the door, not from

the top of the rear fender

That cammo scoop shape is 100% fake. I even think that ridge at the bottom of the door is fake. This is a mass produced car the scoop and the doors will reflect that in the final version. It will be a much more simple assembly line friendly design. Don't expect it to have many exotic car styling features this is GM after all.

chazcron 10-24-2018 08:31 AM

Yeah, as I am finessing the door scoop area, I know that what I have done so far is off. Can someone post that shot of the door ajar, showing the shape of the "arrow" bump? I am vacilllating between getting more accurate on that part of the model and continuing on with the rest of the model. The front and rear clips are going to give me fits. I usually work from the front clip to the side to the back, but not this time.

I am so clueless- I now see where this detail originated from and it is actually on a prototype vehicle. Anything is possible but I don’t believe GM will go now this design path- just too radical.

elegant 10-24-2018 09:02 AM

Here is the closest picture we have (thanks to CorvetteBlogger). Separately, there is confirmation that the door does open by reaching under the front top edge of the scoop, putting one’s finger on the pressure switch, to open the door.

chazcron 10-24-2018 09:27 AM

That's the one.

ltomn 10-24-2018 09:40 AM

If you re-examine the leaked Zerv CAD drawings it shows the scoop much further back on the side then the camo shows. That has been shown on other renders as well.

Non educated guess but I believe the scoop line originated from the horizontal door line and doesn’t connect with the top of the fender

Try this....:cheers:

I am going to rework the scoop and likely this is the direction I'll be going. I am coming to the realization that my fanciful scoop (as much as I like it) is too speculative and this C8.R is probably closer to the truth. This is where I started out to begin with.
