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.

Have you considered masking the windows and leaving them in place and constructing a simple headliner to cover the mess inside?

Thanks again for all your help. I visited my LHS and while looking at the bits and pieces section and there it was, most of the wood I will need, just like at least one of you mentioned. Along with coffee stirrers, what about paint stirrers? Combined with the coffee stirrers and split in two, could they be an answer for a board and batten type of siding?
