Da (not-quite-so-fast) Gangster Getaway 2

3D model description

No, not every gangster could afford a bullet-proof Cadillac, so this one is for the poorer hoodlums of the US gangster 1920s.
It's loosely based on a 1920s Ford Model A Business Coupe, so if you're looking for historical or engineering accuracy, it probably isn't this one.
Again, it's designed as a 28mm wargaming model, this one designed to go with such rules as 'Mad Dogs with Guns' or similar.

Yes

Resolution:
Fine

Infill:
No

Notes:
Only one part requires supports - the main body around the back window. I have got away with it on this model because the window is quite small, but why risk it eh?

I would recommend a bit of wire for the steering wheel column - plastic is too fragile (is that heresy?)
