Notes On Constructing The Body

The model took much longer to finish than I initially estimated.

The challenge was scratch building the body, fenders, bonnet (hood) and complete interior. The bonnet is based on the Pocher parts, but highly modified and elongated. The fenders and front apron were resin cast with masters made from balsa wood and the body shell is a fiberglass layup. Both techniques were a new adventure for me.
