    Thanks. I'm not actually sure but I think it's something in their molecular structures.

    I find that PVC-panels are a bit softer and easier to work with. Maybe the smallest details would be hard to get out of it.. Anyhow, I want to learn to work with this polystyrene material and maybe one day some of my bendings and cuts will be accurate.

    It's been mostly sanding and bending with this and here are some fast mock up pics of my "progress" for your pleasure!




    I love that rear overhang already! So delicious.. so useless..






    Not much to add.. except a ton of putty!


    Thanks for watching

    Cool I'll have to try PVC!
    Truck looks great! You're getting ahead of me! And your's is harder to build. I have no excuse hahaha.
    That rear overhang looks great, I need a truck like that. All mine have super steep departure angles.

    Thanks for the comments! Appreciated a lot.

    Piece by piece, little by little this caricature is being shaped up. I received some used metal straps for leaf spring material, more fun coming up a little later when I learn a bit more with them. Chassis and powertrain would need some attention or even some kind of thinking too. This gringo is very low on space between the body and chassis so the transmission must go front. I hope that I get everything packed in without too much body cutting!

    Meanwhile, here is some parts and pieces I've managed to get done;



    Same piece fitted. I could not get more filler in there. Should have, though.



    Layers, layers and mirrored layers,



    Layers on the windshield are not yet glued up permanently if I still need to sand it more. It's also missing few details like gasket and wipers;



    More soon, maybe even before December!


    Thanks, Halme
