Really impressive. Reminds me of my father's aircraft mechanic skills in the same thing, except for older aircraft skins. He could pound out a beautifully smooth compound curved skin panel with ease. Alas, I don't have those talents worth talking about.

Hope you are able to go on and build a full sized version.

that's awesome. you'll love the teacher, Ed Barr. He's the one that got me hooked on metal fab.

he has a book out and a second one coming out in a month that I highly recommend if you're interested in learning about metal fabrication. just look up his name in Amazon.

a couple of us at school are going to be building a full sized D-type next year
If you document this on a Jag website, please give us a link. I love the D-type.

I have ordered the two books, so looking forward to checking them out.

I have just quickly skimmed over the books and I was impressed at the level of explanation and detailed photos and number of tools needed. I was hoping to see more photos of your car which I see was finally painted red. I also liked the section on building an Indy race car 20's and 30's era circa Alfa Romeo.
Cheers Steve
