It was canceled for me due to the errors.

The shell has been shipped. I expect it in the next couple of days, however; I had to return to work and will not be home until next week to view the result. Oh well.

It is here. The details turned out pretty nice and I'm quite happy. There are a couple of minor modifications I'd like to try and the mechanism has yet to arrive, but I think I can comfortable move on to developing the brass detail parts. These will include textured walkways, filigree handrails, steps, fan covers, lifting hooks and the panel covers. The main modification to the shell is on the long hood. I'm going to remove the section where the brake blister goes and leave it up to the "customer" as to which type of section they want to install. Thoughts?

I don't know, man. I just tried it under hot water to see what would happen and it only became noticeably soft under scalding water. There will be some heat transfer tests and a sag test when the mech shows up, but for now it is working. The water did show one good thing. If a gloss coat was applied the material becomes very transparent. Flush mounted windows, baby!

Looks great, well better than that really well done! Thinking out loud again but wouldn't the addition of brass doors and floor pans and fuel tanks not strengthen it up somewhat
