Rick, I have an idea for you if you haven't thought of this already. I saw that you have already drawn a "lip" around the passenger side window opening for the window. If you haven't cut out these openings yet, may I suggest to you to take a strip of Tamiya 2mm Fine Line tape and placing it around the edges of the window openings so that it may act as a clean, straight guide for cutting out your window openings. I think this will give you a very straight edge as a result of following the tape as you make the cuts for the windows. Hope this can be of a help to you.

Hi guys.

As many of you can see, my update ratio are more less than many. I started this project more than 9 years ago, so I can understand that many of you get tired and bored.  I know, I should put more effort in modeling, but time is the problem here.

I wish the day had more than 24 hrsB) 

Update!

Rear axle are now mounted on the chassies.

The wheelie bars was built from Evergreen strips.

Primer.

I wanted them look like they were pouder coated, so I airbrushed then semi gloss black.

I scratchbuilt those small wheeli-wheels from Evergreen tubing. Mounted with RB Motion bult, washers and nuts.

Great to see that you are still working on this effort.  Quite inspiring for scratch building details.

Here is my homage to your talent:
