    To get nice surfaces it could take you a year to learn cad software part time... its easier to just have someone create it for you. The next step is to slice it up and run it through a foam CNC carver.

    I have a bunch of super car models, most likely I can use those panels and create something similar for you.

    Is it hard to find a cnc machine where i live, i have seen that people do a skeleton of slices of wood and they left spaces between each layer of wood then they fill with foam all the spaces and shape it up. I wanna know how to get those slices of the car to build the body... btw can you do it for me or help me with the design?

    I love your ambition, building a kit is one thing, building your own is an entirely different beast. You must be amazing with hand laid fiberglass and fabrication. Fugazzi's build is pretty awsome maybe you should ask him for a few pointers on how he got his start on it. Just a thought. I look forward to seeing it
    Posting on board w/ my phone, sorry for the jumbled words

    I find fiberglass so hazardous for a starter, that its best to even work at McDonalds (or any minimum wage job) for a month, save money and contract the work out.

    Ive looked into it and found this method to be the most economical, although I never tried it.
