Default Anyone have rockshow moonbuggy panel templates?

Hey, I know I can make my own, but before I do I thought I'd see if anyone had any digital templates to make side and top panels for the moonbuggy.

Uroplatus has one but I found it easier to just make my own.

just cut a big oversized trapezoid, screw it to the sides and trim it down to line/curve you want....then you can use it to cut the other side. IT was actually faster to just cut to fit the first time than to try and trace and cut out subsequent panels
the roof and hood are just rectangles. cut your holes for the roof about 1-2mm farther apart so it will curve up a bit and when you put on the hood/cockpit/rear panel just make the bends for the middle/cokpit drop one at a time and then shave the ends down a little at a time to match the taper.

I actually used the body off of an old Nitro Rustler. Worked out great as it has the curve in it already to form to the chassis. I also went a step further and extended it out past the shocks so to look more like a buggy. Need to get pics.

First one is the old style rockshow and the last is the moonbuggy.

After 2 or 3 tries, I had the best luck just cutting a random shape that was a little bigger than what I needed. Then I started trimming down each side until I got it where I wanted it. I just left the top edge straight across. Don't forget that the bottom is angled I screwed up one because I creased it based on the slanted bottom line instead of the straight top line
