Hi Ash
The nose cone took some time as I made that from foam and 3mm MDF then coved in car body filler. I kept changing the shape as it was looking too much like the original one on my car. The bonnet and scuttle are made from MDF. The scuttle a made last Friday afternoon as it a simple piece it didnít take long. I will start making the mould in the Xmas holidays which I looking for would to doing.
