Hello all, many thanks for all your terrific responses. Health issues and and the impending marriage of my youngest son have slowed me down but I plan to start later this year. Stay tuned

One of my favorite kits of all time. I can't remember how many of these I have built over the years. Yours is great, very nostalgic, very real. Great job. Thanks round 2.

   Due  to illness I work very slowly pictures are not out of the question, but I am still in the planning stages. Many winters to go.

      The book contains  " digital ready-to-print plans on scales: 1:5-1:6 -1:8-1:0-1:12-1:16-1:18-1:25-1:32-1:43-1:64-1:87"

this book, and all the books from Sebastian and Ignacio Perez, is quite complete. Book contains full scale drawings for1/25 1/32 1/43 1/64 and 1/87 plans, and more info for other scales in book and on web. Well worth the price of admission. Check out their web site @ MODELJUNKYARD.COM Again thanks to all who have offered suggestions and ideas

If you,re worried about the center of gravity try laying the engine flat. The beds empty isn't it? Corvair trans axle, IRS, chain drive from tank clutch to trans axle. 3 pedals... I have to leave now the orderly has my meds.
