Thanks for the update Fred. I am stunned at the quality of that door straight off the mould. Brilliant work.

And now all sections of the tail mold are done, bracing is bonded on, all the fastening bolts through the flanges are fitted and finally I can say the body molds are finished!! Only took 1 week short of 6 years since starting to build the pattern.

Now i can finally get on with the body proper.

Have a good 2013 All!

Cheers

I've now completed the set of body panels, so finally I can say the body is finished! That is if your don't count the headlight arrangements and the wheel arch inner panels.

The pictures below are with the panels supported on blocks, and with the wheels just placed in the wheel arches.

if you want to read the blood sweat and tears story of making the parts I have it documented at this link

Plan now is to take some time to spring clean the workshop, and then start to get to grip with the suspension and chassis.

Cheers

Wow Fred! That looks great. Wonderful to see it here on this forum. I thought the Locost and GT40 guys had stolen you away....

Can't wait to see what work of art you are going to create with the chassis and suspension.

Thanks for posting Fred.
