Yes, your work is very impressive. The shop in the background of these latest photos hints at some involvement with sculpture, which would be a confidence builder. Even so, those clamshell shapes are a complex and sophisticated 3D shape, and your work looks excellent. They are quite an accomplishment.

Start off by making a foam pattern then moulding it.I then produced a wax from the mould and got it cast at work, then a lot of sanding later got the metalwork finished just need to make some gaiters the handbrake and gear lever.
