It's been a while since I posted updates on this car. I have been building two cars concurrently and will finish both about the time.

A shot of the engines. No oil stains yet.

Very impressive build!

 

What did you use to make the original body from? Styrene?

 

 

Thanks!

Dave, thanks. Your rig is progressing nicely too. 

 

pharoah, the body was made from styrene profiles and styrene sheet in all the areas I could bend without compound

forming. The compound shapes were done with styrene foam and Bondo to blend to the profiles.. Silicone rubber mold

and vinyl ester tooling gelcoat and VE laminating resin for the finished body. VE resin are low shrink and didn't warp the thin mold.
