I hadn't seen this build until now, but wow! That's fun! Very detailed scratch build on a unique car.

Lovin' the build! Your scratchbuilding skills are amazing.
Something has been tickling at the back of my brain and I think I just figured out what: the body doesn't look right (sorry).
When I look at your thumbnail in your very first post, I see two things:
- The mouth lines meet at a point above the center of the circle.
- If you drew a perpendicular line from the upper lip through the eye, the eye looks to fall about halfway between the upper lip and the lines intersection with the curve of the roof.
On your body, the mouth hinges at the circle center and the eye is skewed toward the mouth line.

Yeah Martin thanks for your respons,
I know it has some error's (i found them out after i was on my way) i think it's not a big problem because the work is to much to change it.
I'm also planning to make a pac rod 1/8 then i will use what i have learn on this one (second one's Always better than first ).

The rod has some color now.
First i put some base then i found out the body wasn't that smoot after all (see arrows).
So put some more plaster and start sanding
Then finally the color
Now i can start making the inside and work on the decals.
Ok you guys behave and keep on building.
See you next update.

That is a really cool build, Dirk. By the way, it wasn't until I saw your signature line that I realized you and I have the same name. Cool!
