    Thanks guys :)

    This is a small update on my first try to make the side intakes/skirts, Ferrari Enzo style. For now i only made 1 side to see how it comes out, I'm thinking of redoing it and try a slightly different shape

    I used foam blocks and then shaped them with pneumatic rotary sander. Here are the working stages

    Drawing the outlines of the intakes on the foam blocks

    After cutting it to basic shape

    This is more or less where i stopped

    Since i didn't have any Enzo pics next to me i had to do it the way i remembered it and i guess that wasn't enough. In my opinion the rear intake came out too thin, I'll have to redo that in the upcoming days.

    But now you get the basic idea on what I'm about to do. Tell me what you think :)

    thanks for the comments everyone.

    olle: you could say i work in the aircraft industry and my specialization is composite materials

    damouse: i guess u will just have to wait for more updates to see how it turns out :)

    With all this said, I'm taking a risk at getting embarrassed here, but here's my 1st video worklog update. I made it pretty quickly, no fancy editing or whatsoever, but i hope to improve in the future.

    So... enjoy

    Thanks sparky :D

    Time for another update guys. Been working on the front for the past 2 days. Also began working on the HDD custom made cage after giving up on finding the removable Lian Li one.

    I began sculpting the lower front section using rohacell strips.

    Finally threw in some foam pieces to fill in the large ares
    [​IMG]

    Then came the shaping part. Weapons of choice :twisted: Pneumatic rotary sander with 40 grit sandpaper, some 80 grit sandpaper for shaping by hand and a cutting knife to cut off large chunks of material

    Will continue with the front tomorrow...

    Also as I've mentioned i began working on the HDD cage. The cage is designed to house 3 standard 3.5" drives and will be made of 2 parts. The internal supports and the external cage. Today i made the supports

    Started off with a piece of glassepoxy (that stuff the PCB's are made from). Marked it out and cut the pieces using dremel with diamond disk attachement

    [​IMG]

    After cutting and some sanding, i measured the holes placements and drilled them aswell

    Testfitting... seems to be a nice fit

    Oh, yeah. The sculpting is starting to show the character of the car, now. That's looking great.

    thanks dacust

    Got more work done on the front today. The sculpting is almost done. Trying to make it looks something like this...
    [​IMG]

    So i started sculpting the hood.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Added some more rohacell to the lower section and started sanding it all together
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And the more or less finished look. Doesn't look quite the same, sorry for that i'm not very good at this. But still looks pretty cool. kinda like some sort of transformer

    Can you get some more info on that rohacell stuff? Awesome for parts making like that, and I have an idea kicking around that it would work great for...

    Hey Dima, this is coming our great. I love the sculpting work and the video update was very helpful in figuring out what is going on, videos might (or at least should be) a new trend. Good luck with the rest of it,

    Thanks guys :)
    KayinBlack: Rohacell is a core material and it is used in wide range of applications, mostly as a sandwich material in some structures that require high strength to weight ratio. it comes in different grades and rated by KG/m^3. The ones i work with are rohacell 52, 71, 110, 170, 195. I use rohacell 52 for the sculpting, its density is very low and it sands extremely easily. rohacell can be quite expensive for someone who wants to use it for a private project

    greensabbath: thanks dude :). i really think you should come by and visit themodnation-forums.com, it's a new trend over there, to post video logs, tutorials and other stuff, and i just had to make one of my own to fit in :D

    Where did you get "blue" from? And if you follow the log, it's looking less and less like a box.

    Let him finish! I got a feeling it's gonna look a lot more like an enzo once he's finished.

    Keep it up ssR, and I, too, like the video. Wish I had the gear to do one.

    I think someone has been looking at pictures and not actually reading.

    Looking good. Another ambitious project that is being done well.
