Here's a couple of views of the stacked sections; mimicking the assembled cut foam pieces.



Please note that the door, wheel skirts, and the hood are separated from the main chassis, just as the foam will be, so they can be assembled separately.

I plan on importing this into SketchUp and smoothing it -- this will make the model much smoother and "tighter" so that hopefully I can then do CFD testing; which should give an approximate Cd (coefficient of drag).

I'm back to work (for a month or so) and I hope to save enough money to buy 100 sheets of foam and get going on the construction of the full size prototype. Life is a Catch-22 sometimes...

I'm going out to buy 25 sheets of 1" x 2' x 8' Dow XPS foam, this morning! The only thing is it is T&G, because I can't find the square edged kind. I've laid out the sheets with a bit of room at the edges, but I was hoping to have a little margin for error. But, I've waited long enough...
