    nice progress, looks really good.

    How long did it take you to carve the body and what are the details on the CNC machine??

    All elements less than four months

    Accuracy is good. I used Ball End Mill Cutter, diameter 6mm

    After milling remain grooves on the surface. Body must cover the primer or filler.

    Great work!
    I'm using Rhino3D too, but freemill to make my G-code.
    But i'v a small CNC DIY compare to yours
    Good idea to use polystyrene as material added with aluminium paper, less expensive than PU foam ( here in France , you need around 1500€ to make in PU a whole car with interior)
    you used a resin compatible with polystyrene then, just to the rear cover?
    You use a second method after in order to obtain a good finish? Like some Clay or finish coat ( the red stuff) to cover the polystyrene, isn't it?

    I would like to have finish this step like you too
