        Fabulous work on the body. I am hoping to use your techniques on my Alfa Romeo 8C Monza body. Does the body buck have to be built from wood? Could a buck be cast from Eurethane and used for hammering copper or aluminum?

        Hi genlemen!

        Ken, I do agree... And about the "real" question, I enjoy that!

        Daniel, I'm sorry but I forgot to give you where I took this wonderful idea.
        Take a look at (another "master"...):
        http://www.wettringer-modellbauforum.de/forum/index.php?page=Thread&threadID=35661&pageNo=1

        Dougritt, yes, it's a wooden buck. About the Eurethane one, sorry, I don't know...
        I never try!

        Well, chassis, more:












        Another "game" on the chassis.
        Froggies, you know...

        Tchernobyl?
        Of course not!
        Only all the elements of the chassis before soldering:







        And it's not complete!
        Wait and see...
