Oh my! I guess the 'stuff' just got real around here. Thanks, Stephan, for adding some serious Euro-awesomeness to my day. Truly amazing!


An amazing creation. Would love to see your other builds. The McLaren in particular.

This thread has gone dead since a while back and many of the build shots cannot be viewed because of the change in 3rd party hosting from Photobucket back a few years ago so you cannot see anymore how incredible this guy's work is but as I was searching online for some examples of DIY metal bodies, I found a French thread with this guy's builds - all of them outstanding. Here's a couple pics of the Chaparral 2D, one painted and complete which never made it to this thread.
