    I almost forgot to show how I created the motor end
    it was also quite more complex



    Engine exhaust - part group 27.
    The group has 26 parts on 5 sheets.

    The way that you build each component and the amount of detail that you put in this model as a whole, it does not look like paper at all. If I did not know any better, I would say that this was plastic.

    I GREATLY ENJOY watching the progression of this project.

    You have done a PHENOMINAL JOB on this project.
    It was an ABSOLUTE PLEASURE following this thread and your progress as you made this ABSOLUTELY AMAZING model.
    I know that for me, this thread has been (and still will be) an inspiration of what can be done, if you set your mind to it.
    Saying "THANK YOU" is really not enough, but unfortunately, it is all that I can say. So, THANK YOU Skoda for this WONDERFUL PIECE OF ART.

    Thank you Skoda.

    This has been an amazing build. :wave7:

    I only hope this thread will be around for a long time so I can use it as a reference when I finally start my Sulaco. Files already downloaded.

    Regards,

    Fred
