      As stated in my presentation, I'm doing since 2 years a Continental Mark II, scale 1:12. Presently, I'm doing the floor; the trunk floor is ready. The next step is going towards the front by doing the floor under the rear seat. To spare metal and unnecessary reworks, I did first a model with cardboard. Now, it will be easier to cut the brass at the proper place.

    Hello Roger!

    The effect of the whole exceeds the sum of its parts, your steering wheel looks like jewelry!

    You may wonder what this construction on the frame does mean…Oh, by the way, the engine is on the frame; the fuel line is connected to the fuel pump and both hoses from the steering box are connected to the steering pump. I will shortly do nice (I hope) pictures from that assembly.
    Back to that strange thing. It’s never late to do the last parts, sometimes it would be more wire to do them sooner when the parts are not yet painted. Well, sometimes my planning is not the best, this is the latest example: the complex rod which connects the gas pedal to the car relay was not yet done. It is attached to the body but if I’m putting the body on the frame, I will have no chance to do something. Therefore, I did that jig with the hope that the critical dimensions are reflecting the body. I will notice it when the body is coming definitively on the frame.

    The various sub-assemblies coming to the firewall are installed. I have to do it now because, once the body is on the frame, the engine will prevent the use of a tool for the various screws. It will make the assembly to the frame rather difficult; I see no other method.
