Meng Pickup WIP: Opening the doors.

Hello, back working on the Meng Pickup, this time starting to customize it.

First work i want to do is opening the doors, and i choose to transform the front door lambo style and the rear door sliding style. For the front door i’ve used as reference the images from http://www.verticaldoors.com/ like this http://www.verticaldoors.com/cart/view_product_info.php?ItemID=1090.

I’m not still 100% sure about the front door, but there’s still time to choose…

First i cut out the doors using the Trumpeter Scriber:

Then, using some Plasticard Styrene Sheets i’ve build the doors interiors and simulate the armour:

I’ve insert and masked the glasses:

Ready for a fast mockup of the possible setup:

Next time the work on the suspensions! :)
