Opel Rekord C Coupe

No witty post title today...

Ivan Franciskovic (that's what the copyright says, anyway) has built an excellent rendition of Opel's Rekord C Coupe. Although it is in a fairly monotonous grey, the subtle uses of plate shaping and snot are very effective. It isn't just a pretty face, though; it's fully mechanical. I see PF-powered rear wheel drive with independent pneumatic suspension and Ackerman steering geometry. Neat, eh? It also looks like Ivan is preparing the gallery for a whole lot more documentation, which will hopefully include more detailed pictures of the chassis. I'll add any updates as a postscript to a future post.

Occasional driving force of the blog, self-proclaimed Lukas fanboy, and aspiring engineer, Jacob spends too much time building LEGO, not enough time practicing piano, and not nearly enough time doing school. He also enjoys long sentences. In the instance of blogging, he believes in quantity over quality, wherever quantity can be maintained.
One of the cofounders of YSAB, and the founder of YSA, Observing Mike actually being productive is a rare occasion. Mike enjoys making outlandish claims in relation to actually building, pretending he's actually sorting his collection, and making excuses for why he hasn't photographed his MOCs. In his free time he enjoys learning CSS from Spook, photography and poking badgers with spoons.
Occasional builder, occasional blogger, and full-time procrastinator. That's really the only way to describe Dean. He rarely gets anything done, but is a very active lurker. He's probably seen and liked your MOC, but just forgot he had a blog.
Erik is still a teenager.
Lukas is tall, blond, mildly OCD, and doesn't build nearly enough as he would like to, thanks to school. He has a webpage.
Spook (Tim)
The resident codemonkey and graphics person. If something isn't working correctly, it's probably his fault. Fitting to his name, he doesn't post often, but someone has to do this stuff too, right? Spook does build with laygoes, and has his own blog as well.
