    That’s great! Checked out the blog post too!

    Yeah the seat of the pants is of course optional, I expect on a different day Guilherme might have taken the reference into the background option, he probably regretted it in fact when he had to back up a few steps while working on them. Hence the blurred screen! :D

    I don’t really have anything to add on your model though, great presentation! i’ll ask Guilherme to come over and take a look too! :)
