Those  back corner ones have me a bit concerned.

Should be ok with thin enough plastic. I have sheet plastic that bends well and thought about filling them but prefer the windows.

On the window issue, I have had good luck using thin clear plastic from packaging used for different products you might buy most anywhere. My favorite is the plastic used behind the top button and under the collar on men's dress shirts. This is used to make it hold it's shape. They will bend easily without creating a bend mark in the plastic.

It is a phantom, not stock but someone may have built one in 1:1.

there was this VW Fridolin that was made primarily for the post office. I remember seeing these when I lived in Germany. I’d love to have a resin of this one!
