Any updates Tim? I'm with you. If I ever get a body, it'll most likely be because I made it, so I'm definitely interested in this!

No, I haven't gone any further with it. Cutting it up was the fun part. Scanning and tracing all the sections is very time consuming.

I had a thought the other day. I think I could have sliced the whole thing horizontally. Of course if I wanted to translate that to full scale each section would have to be made up of several pieces of 4 x 8 foam.

Dave, you were going to see if you could pull cross section from your CAD file. Any chance you might still do that?

Dave, that really would rule if you were able to do that! Then those who wanted to scratch build would have as accurate a start as possible.

I hate bringing up really old topics, but Did anything ever come out of the measurements from all those peices, Tim?  

I was considering doing the same thing with my AMT model that BWD sent me,

....but its a gift, and i cant cut up a gift like that

Let me know please

nope.  It looked good in the pictures but the cuts weren't all that even and some of them were crooked.  It just wouldn't have been worth all the work to scan and trace them for it to be that inaccurate.

I thought I made some crude cuts , but heck they will help by getting the overall shape, I know the distance between the formers are'nt set but I think it can be figured out when layed out.

I said they were rough, but it'll work

But follow Tims work uptop, He knows his stuff, his is way more accurate than mine, I just felt like cutting up one and tracing the cuts outs from one to the last #.

Hey it couldnt have been THAT bad, i didnt have a mounted bandsaw (or access to one) when did my renderings.    All i had was a ruler, a calculator, a laser straight edge (thanks to BWD!) and a 1/16th hand saw blade.    I dont have the pictures developed yet, but all i did was make a knick every 1/4th of an inch, and used the laser straight edge to ensure more of a smooth cut.   BUT even after all that some of them came out crooked, or just a HAIR offset.   So i took those peices, and compared them to the driver side (that i didnt cut up) and recalculated what it should be at.  

And i will also say this, to my suprise; scanning the peices in distorted them somewhat due to perspective reasons, EVEN THO all the peices where flat and straight.     so there again i had to remodel to make it more close to the original. 

That crap is hard to do!
