Well, you do have to drive to and fro from your spaceships. :)

You'll have to wait very little RB! The file is ready. I just have to edit instruction document to reflect my last modifications and then I'll be ready to post the resource. Today the sky is blue here in San marino so I'll try to shot some photo at the finished model to complete my building thread. :D

Delightful and impressive. Tremendous investment in re-engineering, time, and effort. Astonishing workmanship on an interesting subject. Thank you for building and showing this beautiful model.

Thanks for telling me that. I do think a lined version, just on the body, that grill and interior are too beautiful too touch, would be nice, if you ever get the time!! :)

"This is interesting. The white strips on fenders and engine hood, as well as the headlights covers, were imposed during war time.
I can imagine the headlight covers was intended to be less visible from aicraft at night, but I cannot figure the reason for painting white all car edges... "

A belated comment on the wartime white-striping of the car's fender and hood edges: vehicles in England also were white-striped during WW2. This might have been so other vehicles and pedestrians could see the cars during night-time blackouts. White is visible in low light conditions.

Thanks Mark, your explanation is very plausible, you finally dispelled my doubts! You're never too late if you give a good answer ;)
