Without going into too much detail I'm showing an initial development of the "Stiletto". This is early phase so much of the details pertaining to the main canopy and how all that works is still being worked with my twin brother. Yes there are two of us with the same skills that can do this work! If you are wondering how is this all getting done, then you can see having a partner in crime helps!

Posting up some additional WIP for the Stiletto project. My brother Kevin is doing a bang up job on this one as he now is working on the canopy region. Any reference would be kindly appreciated as we have limited reference for the cockpit area. Thanks guys!
I'm gonna do a little digging Mike; I'll see if I can come up with more pics for you; if nothing more can be added ... I'm sure it will still be fine; because this means no one else will know what the cockpit area looked like either.Hmm, actually, I wonder if you were to contact Carl Casper, if he could shoot a pic or two of it; even though it probably was changed when the body was; it might give you something to go by ..best case ; perhaps he has pics of it before it was altered.

And of course, this is what Carl did with Dave Puhl's Illusion show car BEFORE & AFTER .... ( I sure wish he didn't ) .... it's OK; the paint is insane; but I much prefer the original.
HOLY CRAP! I did NOT know this!!
I know it's hard to see that one & to know the Stiletto was turned into "The Cosmic Invader" right behind it, in the pic. As I said before, It would have been pretty easy to just make a mold & cast these two in fiberglass; to customize & leave the originals - same goes for Starbird & the Futurista - there; all he used off it was the rear quarters/fins ( which he used on the rear/side section of the "Star Trek Coupe ) & trashed the rest.To be fair though, I suppose at the time, this seemed to be the way to go; for whatever reason.
