Here's the video, embedded:
You may not be able to tell but the cast metal ends are really distorted. I solved this by building up the castings with styrene then sanding them flat again, but that's another video. I'm already casting parts for this car using a casting set from Alumilite I purchased last year at Hobby Lobby using a coupon. Again, that's another video (the casting, not the trip to Hobby Lobby). And I'll need to scratchbuild doors and door hardware...that's another video too. Not sure how many parts this will be when all is said and done, but I hope to keep each video under 10 minutes (closer to 5). No rambling, shaky camera, distracting background chatter from a TV, etc. Just simple descriptions and straight up modeling.
Thanks for reading, and for watching. Please share this video with folks you think may find it interesting. I hope to post follow-up videos every couple weeks or more often during my Sabbatical. After that, more like once a month as long as there's something worth watching.
