        Matija,
        Disregard Aflo's last comment.
        You will find lots of people on this forum who have built their own cars, and are willing to point you in the right direction.
        First figure out what type of buck you want to build (cnc foam mold, and spar& frame are 2 common types), them ask around on the forums if someone who makes correct models can segment the model for you. you might have to pay for that, but I can't imagine it to be terribly expensive.
        Good Luck

          As Brada said...
          There are lots of people on this site who can help you - and they have POSTED numerous times on their experiences and techniques.
          There is a SEARCH function here. Learn to use it. You may find exactly what you want, already posted. In any case, you will find lots of material that will lead you to the solutions, even if not already boiled down into perfect summaries.
          Once you have searched, and gone through the effort, you will find people willing to help.
          On the other hand, I would hesitate to "disregard" anybody's opinion or post. In addition to being non-productive, it is disrespectful.

            I'm with aflo,

            If you go to the build dairy section of this site and start reading though all of the builds you will pretty much find answers to all of your questions. I've wasted hours replying to new people, and re-organising my body plans etc for them. During this time they are pretty much my best friend, then when they figure out how hard it is to actualy build a body from scratch they dissapear. Happened countless times to me and probably others aswell. If people see that you are making an attempt they may be more helpfull. You don't need to use a 3d model, Almac here in NZ made one of the best selling Cobra replicas using a 1/24th scale model and lots of photos, I made a start using a scale model on a piece of glass and measured it with a digital caliper. There is a guy who built a buck in a similar way over on the gt40 forum.

              I agree with both of you fellows, I get 3-5 emails a week just from this forum on this and that, I was pointing out that all Alfo had to do was just give a simple post with some given direction.
              after talking to them it's clear that they are new to this and were looking for guidance.
              Thats all

                    There is a site called metalmeet.com which is dedicated to sheet metal shaping which has good info on making body bucks and formers for sheet metal cars which could also do the same job as a plug for fibreglass mould. There is a lot more than just fibreglass to building a car and the site has a lot of good info on all the other aspects you will need and you might learn some new skills you will definitely need if you are going to build a car from scratch.

                      Guys thank you all for your posts! I found some tutorials how to build body buck thanks to yours critics and comments... i just needed a push from that "how" edge... i get some links for sites, i'm starting to learn how to do some things in 3D software so i'll make my own diary about building body buck as soon as possible...

                      Sorry for my english but i think that you guys can understand what i'm saying.

                      Thank you all and i hope you'll read my diary very soon!

                        Matija,
                        As cr1978 mentioned, it can be a long and trying process. I build cars for a living and Kits (especially scratch built) are amongst the hardest to build well!!... but, don't be discouraged, just be realistic and reasonable .. take your time to do it well!
                        the excitement of doing it fast and in a hurry will quickly be overshadowed by parts failing from not being built properly.
                        Good luck friend!.. Keep us posted

                          Plantac1, I have a very accurate set of molds for the Countach and the 25Th Countach. If you would like to try this from a different direction, $6,000 will get you a complete body, interior, and wing to pull your own molds from.
