    Patience! This is not a weekend project. About 22 hours carve time so far.

    Understand, just throwing the "are we there yet" type of impatience out there. With all you have to figure out and then accomplish I'm glad you take the time to document and share.
    Thanks, Rick H

    Working on the nose pieces yesterday and today. Much of the pieces can be designed using the 3D tools, but the compound curves top and bottom are a design challenge. I decided to shape these portions by hand using Styrofoam and a sanding block. The patterns were coated with epoxy, rough sanded, filled with Glazing and Spot Putty, sanded, and scanned with the scanning probe. Cleaned up with pattern Editor. The resulting patterns are highlighted in the screen shot. Carving now.

    A preview of the grill, fresh out of the Carvewright. I will be fitting this tomorrow.

    Been making some sawdust on this project. This is the second bag so far; doesn't include what's coming off the Carvewright!

    Front clip is nearly done. I need to sand the grill and add some under-hood framework. And apply finish of course. I have started on the rear panel design. Parts are fitting together nicely.

    Looks great, a best buddy had an early bronco that we lived in so it really hits home here.
    Thx, Rick H
