then started on the hood. it was a real trick to make the GTH hood into a flat elenor hood.. hood was cut into 4 sections an sheet plastic was added for the scoop ..

this thing is coming along nicely,you didn't by any chance cast those turbos in resin did you? I'd be interested in a couple if you did. Very good build,can't wait to see it finished.

Like your work, i am not so keen on the real thing, i think it sits too high. Like what you have done with the scratchbuilding work. I like the turbo's, how did you fabricate them?
