    now that I finnish the second Custom from the Brasil convention exclusives, Im going to do the third and last one which will be a Deco Delivery. I already have a couple of ideas to make it but wanted to give everybody the oportunity to help me design the general configurations of the parts Ill use to make it, maybe the front of it as the chest or should I use the front fenders? the feet should be wheeled or the wheels should be on the hips, dont worry if the design has hard to make cuts, Ill do my best to accomplish them. In the end the best configuration posted (by drawing, Illustration or by description) will be the definitive design to start working on it, Ill post this on other forums as well to look for the best idea, I would truly appreciate your help

    I may try to come up with a configuration for you later, but I just have to say, again, that I am SO impressed by how cleanly you cut these diecast cars. Looking at your 5th pic is just mind blowing...especially since you kept all the deco perfectly un blemished!

    Oh man, you could do wonders with Bumblee VW. Those are clean cuts. I would never have even entertained the thought of cutting die cast. Now I am considering cutting the die cast model I have!

    I use to do them with a dremmel, however I found the very needed jeweler saw, I already did the third and last one with it and the cuts were even more perfect than the others (curves are not a problem anymore) do you recognize the head donnor
