Russ, I literally layed my frame out in sharpie on my work table (still there) and scaled up the bulkhead stations from a small 3 view drawing on smcars.net. and drew right on the material. Most of the body is just eyeball sculpture. I really should take molds from it before I wreck anything. Even if I built another one,It would come out a little different.and have to start from scratch again.
