It’s little more than doodles at this point, but this is Concept Echo for the Streetliner. Of all the concepts I’ve rendered ’till now, this one is easily the closest to what I’ve seen in my head in terms of its sensibility. It’s got some wonderful ’30s and ’40s era automotive cues, but also some modern flair. Most of all, the rear end is really feeling the streamliner locomotive, art deco vibe I’ve wanted to always have present in this vehicle. The next step, I think, will be to render it in floral foam, then shell and paint a mockup. I’ll be doing this at a much larger scale than before, set off of 4″ wheels and built onto a sort of mockup under-chassis that should let me fit a number of test body shapes moving forward. Think of it as the small scale prototype for shape and aesthetics, rather than mechanicals (that’s a separate, ongoing thing all its own).
