I've got one of these bodies as well, shipped as anectra when I placed an order for 3 other bodies. Don't know why it was shipped but I've had it for years now. Never really thought about building it because of the cargo area. Will be following. Looks great so far

If anyone considering building this model is looking to do really detailed wood grain you might consider looking into the decal set made by Uschi specifically for this body.These are a very transparent film with the wood grain on it so you decide what color the wood will be including any shading needed.To see these decals being used look at the beautifully done coach built '29 Ford roadster on these forums.

IMG_0147.thumb.JPG.0b94eca26874b347aa68cI haven't made any progress on this in a while.  

Ed, thanks for the interior shot.  I have been looking through images of these things, and rarely see the inside. 

I started working on the seat and interior panels.

Knowing Jimmy as I do you can be sure the"extra"body was a gift from him.He always includes free extra stuff with his orders simply out of generosity.

Hi  Ben, When can we expect some more on this build. I am also building one of these and find your wip info very helpful.

I haven't worked on it in a while, kinda got stuck on some of the interior panels.  I am trying to shape those panels to fit inside, and trying to make the whole thing fit together.
