soporsche is on a distinguished road

Looks very cool... and not too distant from the mx250 moulds in places. that curved rear window might be challenging.
Modifying an existing mould/shape would be definitely easier than a 'from scratch' body.

The challenge (Im looking at an alternative body at the moment) is modelling the car/panels unless a investment is made in a foam/clay model which is expensive. The alternative and done many times before is to 'borrow' a car to take the moulds from, this can obviously be tricky if the car is a £xMillion rarity.
In talking to Chris who obviously knows much much more than me (and other bespoke builders), its generally an easier proposition with 'something' tangible to model from.
Im sure though that Chris might offer a solution with a little ingenuity :-)
