View Full Version : New to modelling

24th May 2009, 10:12 PM
Hi, I just registered here. Not made any models yet and I have a few questions. When making the main body of a vehicle, from pictures, not plans. Do you bandsaw or scrollsaw the shape out of a solid block or is the body made up of lots of different parts? I want to make a scale model of a Toyota hilux surf truck and I have reference pictures and blueprints of the car, so now its just a case of working out the best way to begin.
