Very ambitious project of a beautiful vehicle.You have obviously planned your work very carefully as the work done looks right on target. You are you brave soul too carve the bumpers from scratch but they appear very accurate. I look forward to seeing it develop. Thanks for sharing your project with us.
Amazing work! Your models are sure to be an inspiration to many people.Be sure post some of your work in progress projects so we can all see and appreciate the process you have for creating these works of art. Welcome to be the forums.Ciao!!
I would suggest starting the same way I always do,with photos.I take photos of the real vehicle from each side plus front and rear.Measure the wheelbase then have the photos you took enlarged to match that size in 1/25th scale.If you don't have a 1/25th scale ruler,send me a PM and I'll mail you a copy of my Murphy's Rule ll.Once you have a 1/25th scale photo copy of the body sides you can simply scale everything from there.The curved section above the side windows can be made from thin wall evergreen tube stock.Any UPS store can do the copy enlargements for you or even your local post office may have a copier available with enlargement options on it.Out P.O.does for only 15 cents each which is a lot cheaper than driving 20 miles to the nearest UPS store.Good luck with your project and be sure to post your progress here on the forums.
Good for you those high top coupes are not exactly common any more.I have cut up a bunch of those over the past 40 or so years since the kits were new on the shelves.Be sure to post your progress so we can watch it develop.
