After a long wait and a lot of work involved with getting the many unique specs of the early 335's it's about time to start the build thread. Let me begin by saying that this time I'm not doing this project alone. I've been very fortunate having Ken McKay, a master builder with a lot of experience in making hollow bodies, building the body to my required specs and we also had the one and only Bharat Khandekar on the loop which helped us achieve the goal. Ken already made my entire first proto body and the result is striking and super accurate down to the finest details. I have asked him to post the first section of this build showing how the body was made and I hope he will kindly agree to post it here. Soon after I'll continue with the rest of the build. Please note that this is the first proto and many things can go wrong or take a little time so please be patient... lots of specs, drawings, tooling and jigs are required to get it done correctly.
