I've been following this thread, I've had some surgery this last month that really put me out of the loop. You are doing a fantastic job on this model. You should be very proud and rightly so! :)

And here are the first new templates.

First I will build the main body with new internal formers. I have used 3 main formers these are joined toghetter in the centre. Sorry i didn't take a picture of it. Then to get a strong outside I cut six pieces of small paper and placed them as shown in the picture below.

If all formers are placed the box will look like this.

Next is to close the box.

I'm not that happy with the former setup. I will look at it again after finishing the new made parts. Stay tuned.

Here is an idea for the formers. Have three hexagonal pieces (one for each end and one for the middle). Laminate all three pieces to (at least) 2mm. Then start wrapping the skin around the three hex pieces.

Thanj youboth. I have some new ideas that I can work on thanks to you guys. I'm thinking to incoroperate the 3 seperate peaces in the main body. Then use the internal formers and wrap the main body around it. I still can use the formers for the front and rear end maybe some litle adjustments. But first I gone test fit the new made parts.

I worked on several other parts but these didn't turn out as I hoped. So I need to fix some errors. But overall I'm happy with te results.
