I love the response note at the end Quote: "I then use a dedicated MS Excel spreadsheet to compare all the dimensions derived from the drawing and those of the real car with the planned LEGO model. During the design stage I further like to superimpose the LEGO CAD snapshot over the original reference drawing to verify the final result and the accuracy of the overall proportions." I on the other hand, like to root around in the big bin of legos and stick things together.
