    Hi folks,

    Results from the poll and comments at paperinside.com indicates Munster Koach as the next car to be modeled at paperinside.

    I've found lots of pics and information at http://www.munsterkoach.com

    However, if someone has other pics - specially blueprints and views (top, left, front, back) - please, feel free to share them.:grin:

    Any help will be welcome!

    Thanks in advance!

    EXCELLENT!!! I think Ashrunner had some plans for this as well, maybe the two of you could team up and share resources?

    Anyway, Claudio, you should be King!:grin:

    Claudio,

    On the http://www.munsterkoach.com link you provided there are front and rear views of the original coach. They are in the black and white picture section:
    http://www.munsterkoach.com/bw.htm

    There are differences in the engines of the original and the several reproductions. Looks like mostly the placement of the tubes on the intakes. It is quite noticeable looking at the old and newer pictures.

    George Barris still brings her out to car shows here in So Cal. He was personally cruising around the OC fairgrounds a couple years ago :grin:

    Finally, I've got some time to work on my Koach model. :razz:

    The MilkShape version is almost done, so I think I'll be unfolding it soon.

    You can check some pics at the <a href="http://paperinside.com/munster-koach/">Munster Koach page</a>.

    Oh my ... wow!

    Curious. How'd you build it? Eye it in by references or did you actually find ortho' views?

    Thanks Chris and Steve!

    I did it by references. Unfortunately, I found no ortho views...

    Damn Claudio... Good eyes. Guess what was lacking in othographic views was made up for in close shots and many angles.

    Again ... nice work.

    Can't wait to see some builds.
