Volkswagen Golf Mk1 Rabbit

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

i want to show you my new Project that i started a few days ago. It's a model of an 1978 Golf MK1 Rabbit, i love that car and i think it's a cool project for some weeks.

 

I hope you like it, cheers!

Hey, nice work! It's looking good so far. I personally would have put in a little bit of creativity and create a 2013 version with modern features such as LED lights, camera mirrors, and heavier wheel arches, but the nostalgic approach is cool too. Are you using Solidworks for this?

The rear wheel arch is missing, isn't it? I'm looking forward to seeing this model completed with all the details. And of course then you can share it with the rest of us, say, on Grabcad ;)

 

One remark:

I see from your surface lines that you are controlling most surfaces, except for the crucial transition on the side from the top to the bottom. Is this now modelled as one single surface? I would probably have created them as 2 separate surfaces, then cut them by lines projected from the side and blended the gap. Still, the result looks good. Maybe next time post pictures with a shiny metal surface, and one with curvature evaluation.

Long time ago, but here are the next updates. I was cancel this one of 3 first models and start a new one, because too much critical surfaces and impasses.

 

@ralphzoontjens: i spend a lot of time in this model, so i think that is not easy for me to share this model on this time....sorry for this. But on Grabcad i show other stages http://www.grabcad.com/library/wip-volkswagen-golf-mk1-1

Yes i use Solidworks 2012 SP5.0 for this model.

nice job and level of detail. Must have taken a large amount of time to model this. Here are my 2 cents, I would also do a render with stock wheels and tires with normal ride height.

Cool i had a similar idea some time ago, but......hmm......i like the DUB-Style. When i have some minutes, maybe i would start this project again

looks awesome and well detailed ... i have been thinking of a simple clean car design to be built in solidworks for a while too ... but laziness and a busy schedule at work gets the best of me :/ .... but great work man NerVous
