This is the last update on this project for the time being....I do need to sleep sometime, after all.
I was able to cut that Schwimmwagen in half tonight as planned. My friend Ben let me borrow his hacksaw for the project. It took maybe half an hour to cut through the car.
Now that the hard part is done, the Schwimmwagen will need to be primed, painted and placed in its final resting place (after the water effect has been added).
