    Good choise, was also on my list. And a little C&C on the model, i would check reference pictures rather often and also check on the poly flow. Yours seems tad bit inaccurate especially on the front and the flow is a bit wobbly at some points.

    Been working on the body. Sheet steel purchased 3pcs of 2500mm x 1250mm 1.2mm Sheet Steel for body works.

    ( £52.25 X 3 ) = £156.75 or US$253.5

    Money Left from Total = US$ 5025.5

    Cooool, I never thought of buying steel pieces apart and later modify them to do wheel fenders, spoilers and so on. I forgot that we have a whole workshop equiped with all the tools we need.....

    Show us some wires here, and some unsmoothed mesh too so we can take a closer look to your model. Looks fine at this point, a lot to do as RaheeHawk said but..... we all know it's still a WIP.

    Don't decay :thumbsup:
