Love the flow this sled has! Those extended quarters finish it off very nicely. Quick work too, I'm almost two months into my current project and not even near the primer stage. Great kick in the pants for all us lazy model builders James!

Not to sure about the the lazy guys, but I have a lot of filling and smoothing to do still. I have found that getting the surface close and than priming, really helps these tired eyes see better.

Thanks for the interest...

LOOKs great James, what is that green mat you are working on ??

That's a self-healing cutting mat, available at most craft and hobby stores. Not cheap, but worth the investment as it protects your work surface, cleans up easily and provides a slightly cushioned surface to work on.

Hope you don't mind me answering this question, James.

Thanks Ira. Here is a bit of an update....

​After cutting in the license plate mount, I realized the bumperettes had to go. The pencil marks represent where the taillights will be.
