Wow! I like the look of this. I will be following your progress. I built the old Merit 1/24 version many years ago, beautiful race car.
Best of luck.
Regards, Steve.

I was wondering that too. Otherwise i would have used some renshape. That wood seems like a tough thing to file and sand.

Re: 1/8 talbot lago t26c

Dan,

Without wanting to suggest things you may know already, did you think about making the body in two halves? It was suggested to me on my first project and I thought it wouldn't help, but have gone that method on my latest project and it works for me. It allows you to concentrate on getting the first half correct, then you can do the second side referring to the first. I find it helpful to lay the two halves out flat and next to each other so they are mirrored - I can then work back to front and compare the sides. Hope this makes sense?

I like the old school wood by the way! I'm about shape some bodywork with MDF ;-)

Re: 1/8 talbot lago t26c

Hi all and thanks!

Gionc, old school by old man! And yes, it's my first metal forming attempt...

Jackay, renshape, why not? But very difficult to find in France, and very expensive!

Cinqster, yes it makes sense! But this way is just easier for me...

Well, step by step...







Dan.

Re: 1/8 talbot lago t26c

Good evening folks!

I must say that since my last post, despite the little "visible" things, few (!)
hours of work between the two phases ...
You will see, all lines of structures (only on the left side ...)
are present. Some were taken three times ...
Why?

Most of my material is based on photographs.
I have found these lines [i] from all angles [/ i] properly ...
And some are weird, those of the back!
However, I caught up thus errors in volume ...











The illustration of a correction ...
Right, correct curve in part due to the line of the hood!
On the left, it will be the same thing...




Dan.

Re: 1/8 talbot lago t26c

Hi!
Today, no dust!
Just an aluminum sheet (0,4mm) and go! go! go!



Screws, why?
During a visit to the Museum of Mulhouse (SCHLUMPF) I saw some straps on the formers ...We must keep everything in place!



And tap, tap, tap, tap-tap...









The high-tech tools:



In fact, easier than expected!
But on the top, louvers!!!!

Dan?
Speak louder, i'm still deaf!
