The 40 deg. A pillar angle is found by laying a protractor from ye olde geometry set over 1:1 pics. The 1/25 coupes are right on. I thought maybe the door opening was too long, pushing the cowl forward but the wheelbase is pretty close at 6.75". Have to get some more 1:1 measurements...

Great pic, Steve

Love 'em or lump 'em, that 1/16's gonna need work.  A-pillars is just all kinds of wrong 'n the front fascia's pretty cocked-up too.

Holding the 1/16 body at arms length with a 1/25 held in front to check proportions, the rear end doesn't look bad but the roof could be a little short. This shows in the 30 degree windshield post instead the proper 40 degree A pillar angle.

I've still got the 1/16 I built over thirty years ago here and pull it out of the box once in a while considering how much I need to do to make it look right. The awb fastback will be a nice reissue to have as it's easily restored to stock using the coupe quarters. Not sure if missing link still has the interior in it's repertoire though...
