No problems at all

Just got some primer on the body this day and I´m pleased to see that there´s just not to much to fix from this stage so my attention will go to the frame for the moment and let the body rest for some days. Hope u like it.

That looks awesome !  You should mould it, based on the images I am sure you would sell quite a few !

Merry Christmas fellows

Not sure that this would be moulded and casted.We are just to few building in the big scale.So this will be just one off.

No

This started as a five window Coupe from Mike Gradis. I got an second quality casting and had to replace the hole body so I took a roadster and with some (plastic) surgery It was in place, then the top chop was done and I´ll had to section it to get the right to. So would I do it again? yep I´ll do it again but this time with the 3 window Coupe witch is coming my way any day now.

Hi Frank

I´ll used 1,5 mm plasticard for the windshield  frame. First I did a template in cardboard, used this template on a plasticard and carefully sanded down the outer edges to a nice fit, then I used a drill bit to take out the inner areas and just leaving the frame. Carefully sanded to shape. Had to do a lot's of dry fit to check the frame against the window opening.
