    Ken is currently busy painting it for me. i'll post pics when it's finished. He used primer filler and sanding, I don't think he actually sanded much of anything on the body itself, rather filled in. Others I know use super glue then sand, but being 1/8 scale that wasn't really an option.

    Chassis:
    Well 1.625" tube is 0.203" in scale. I do have some 0.1875", do you all think that's close enough? Or will it appear so small.

    1/8 TDR Nova
    Well I finally pulled the trigger on the 1/8 scale Nova about a month ago. It arrived from Shapeway a few days ago. I sold my resin 55 Chevy to help fund this one, then along with the Shapeway 15% off sale I had just enough money to purchase. I doubt I'll be doing a whole lot this summer as I'm in the middle of a garage build and also restoring a 64 Malibu SS right now and as you all know something like this will take several years. I have quite a few 1/8 items already built and collected for the 55 Chevy that I can use for this project which I'll post as time permits. Help me stay motivated and we'll see where this one goes.
    * I plan on having Ken Shreve from Maryland paint this monster for me, he did another build for me last year that really turned out great.
