I'm just a little worried about what it'll look like once painted. It would be a shame for it to look... ordinary!

First, welcome to the F1M Forums, always a pleasure to have new members join our happy little community here.
Second, Holy Cow :shock: !!!!!! Your craftsmanship is stupendous!! The chassis work is amazing, and such details as the shifter are truly inspiring. I am looking forward to seeing more.
Cheers,
Chris


In amongst Chris's understatements is this GEM.
" Jumping into the party a little late ". As I am myself and even later as well :lol: BUT!!!...

I've been too gobsmacked to be able to say anything :shock: and anyway way it's all been said...
There is nothing that I can say or add, that meets the criteria needed, to be able to comment on your awesome work.
Having said that, I do hope your head enters and leaves the workshop without problems :lol: :wink:

So...Hi Randy, as Chris said welcome to f1m.com and what an entrance :wink:

Come to think of it, it would be almost a shame to even put the bodywork on it!

Have you considered doing a "factory diorama" of the car being built?

Or are you going to scratch-build the bodywork in metal?

Hi Folks,

Hello Harvey, Many thanks..... and speaking of next installments :D :D

Hi Bruce, Nice to see you here !! with your skills you will fit right in .

Hello Tiffoc, Thank you, I have been made to feel very welcome here !

Hi Jeep, Thank you, Like your idea for a diorama ! I do plan on making the spyder metal like on the real car as I am worried that once I cut the doors out I will lose a lot of strenght and will have problems down the road.

update....


The front framework on these cars just kinda dangles off the 'tub'....
