Henri,
this is one that I did many years ago using a starter set coach body as the base for the cab on a Stainz chassis.

Not sure yet. Plasticard or wood.
Oops sorry I thought that was the roof you're shaping. I can never seem to get roofs to stay curved properly

Nr. Ashford, Kent. England.
You can get very thin plywood from aircraft model shops. 1/32 and 1/64 inch. Great for roofing.

Front & rear. 2mm plasticard... Maybe use the oven...
I wrapped some around a bottle and put it in near boiling water - result was not too bad :nod::nod:

To retain a curved roof then laminate several layers of thinner styrene, gluing together in the shape you want.
