    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. If it doesn't, I'll push the maintenance back to Saturday, 2 December.

    But isn't that a crime against humanity to make a supra without a HUGE turbo?
    Naah just kidding
    Looking great bro!

    Hi again!
    Thanks to you all for your intrest!

    And Cliff, I fully understand your confusion. Honestly, I actually don´t know how I would answer you. I got the idea a long time ago from structural pictures of Volvo V50 and fell in love to her immediately. I can´t tell you a clear reason to that why I only make the body. This just would lose its deeper meaning for me if I made the whole car. I hope you understand what I mean.

    No, there is nothing wrong with your eyes. I am, really, I mean really, making a brass model of this boring and slow estate family car that no-one could ever even think making a model car of. But, this differs a bit from what you are thinking now. Here´s the idea: Only the body. Nothing else. And with a little bonus, this time even without two fighting kids, a labrador retriever in the trunk, shopping bags from hypermarket and a yapping wife!

    This is the best picture to show what I am thinking. Just imagine those parts combined without doors, hood and trunk door and that´s about all it´s gonna have.

    Today I started making the mold. I will first do the outer parts(first picture part numbers 3, 7 and 8), then continue with floor and engine room and ehh, well, then I guess it´s done!

    Hope to get you some pictures soon.
    Cheers, Elias
