Default 'Superon' Tanker

For the first time in my life I'm building more than one model at the same time, I don't know why but it just seemed the thing to do so here is one of the other projects. I hope this is the right place to put it.
I chose to do the 'Superon' Tanker from the Thunderbird episode Path of Destruction.
I'm trying to use whatever materials I have lying around and for this model it will be mdf. Once I decided the size which in my case is 24" (I don't know the size of the original) I measured and cut the main chassis/base out of 12mm mdf. For the side panels I used 6mm mdf, after lots of measuring I cut out the wheel arches, unfortunately my wood wasn't long enough so it just ends at the front, I'll solve that problem when I come to it. Mdf is easy to shape but needs a lot of work to get a good smooth finish.

I made a complete mess with the photos, my fault as the camera settings had changed so hope this works this time.
