    After looking at some pictures I am certain I am in over my head but I want to attempt this anyway.
    I am wanting to do a build of the last mini-sprint I ran.
    I am starting from the absolute beginning and have NO idea what materials work best.
    I am wondering about roll cage and body panel material. Best technique for assembly of cage?
    I THINK I have an idea of HOW to go about this venture but am open to all the knowledge you can share.
    I appreciate your time and patience. If this one goes well I'd like to build at least two more of our old cars.
    Thank you again for any info and please let me know if I need to ask OTHER questions.

    any pictures of the car in question would make answering questions a lot easier ,
    one picture says more than a thousand words

    than materials to use , is compleetly up to you and your skills , some want to use brass, others love to use plastic tubing ,
    metal would ad onto the weight of the car

    My 1/8 D Type Jaguar is a mix of plastic, fibre glass and metal.
    Whatever you feel happy with.
    My D Type is only my second ever scratch build Starting my first scratch build 1/8 scale mini sprint .
    There is still a HUGE amount to go. The last few pictures are just with parts mocked into place.
    You really learn as you go.

    First tip - Jump in and get going.
    Any questions, just ask on the various model forums. There's loads of help out there.
