Single Curvature bodywork

Some more progress with body work design, still needs some more tweaks to the back end, but it is getting there. I'm pleased with the overall appearance, especially that it is all single curvature with the exception of the wings. This means that all of the major panels can be unrolled and be pre-cut from sheet, then 'simply' draped over the forms and fastened to the rib structure.

I am currently using a single radius on the wings as this is simpler to form using rollers, it remains to be seen if this will survive the next design review.

The current all up weight for the assembly is 700kg, so should manage to build the vehicle under a tonne.
