Our 5 axis gantry mill is starting to look like something, 2 or 3 more months and it may be operational.

Whats this got to do with cars?

I have already organised the first testing will be to cut some full sized car shapes out of wood or foam to test the programs, hmmm, but what to shape ...

Don't you think there's enough GT40 and Cobra's in the world today?

Nice thought thought, maybe there's similar styles out there long forgotten, problem is I need someone's 3D so it has to be known a little.

What about a body that can slip over a Locost chassis ..

Chevron B6 or Ginetta G12 gets my vote. I'd love to be able to build a chassis under one of those bodies.

Oops, I meant to say "Stratos". Sorry, but the old 2 seat AMX was a neat looking car too. Russ

Ilooked a bit and found one site that hosted 3D car models. http://www.carbodydesign.com/download/3d-models/

They did have a Lancia Stratos and also some American muscle cars. I think finding good 3D models might be hard. Those folks had quite a few, but not that many I thought would be interesting.

I looked all over for Porsche 550 numbers. All the guys that build those parts are old school And talented. I vote for the Ferrari Barchetta Not too many of those on the streets.
