delgs, thanks for the '66 macca mirror, the shape is essentially the same. it's just that the ferrari seems different in that it had a metal outer casing, very thin fram and inside the mirror. or alternatively it had a black housing, probably some plastic or painted metal and similar entry. i will have to think how to properly do that. i was aiming for a full fledged rounded edge chrome finish like your macca has, and all versions of the original mod ferrari seem to have. i'm just not sure that's what it was . of the 3 versions i did so far, i don't like one. so maybe fourth time lucky?
according to my todo list that leaves a bit of touchup to the .3do part for the windscreen, with a slight rework of the bolts, washers and nuts used there, redoing the tyres, try and get that odd specular highlight of the gearknob plus adjusting the outside cockpit edge where it meets the windscreen left to do. yay. finally

thanks remco for the cloth texture!! and everyone for helping with the research (google in particular ). delgs, in the end i didn't render the mirror but painted it by hand - took a few times, but i think it's sort of quite close to one of the versions of the car
onto the next ferrari, finishing off the 712m dash - three in a row, woohooo. then finishing off some M8 maccas (M8C, M8D, M8F)... and all the while working on spa. life is good (and thank god it's winter)
