Didn't get as far today as I had hoped. I did manage to come up with the cut sheet for the basic elements of the hood ornament. The top, short pattern will be cut from 3/16" material. The bottom, longer pattern will be cut from 1/8" material.

It will all be cut from balsa to start.....on the new laser cutters that I got trained on tonight at the new TechShop here in town!!!

Then I will put it all together, sand and fill it, soak it with SuperGlue to harden it and see where I am at. If all goes well, I can send it to Unkl Ian for a quote on getting it cast.
