Class 43: once more

Time came to add the details to the class43 plain model. When trying to intersect one of the details with the lower valance, imported as stl object, the troubles came: FreeCAD doesn’t support stl proper handling and it was not really possible to do boolean operations between FreeCAD objects and and stl import. Perfectionist as I am, as well as my modelling partner is 😉 , I took the chance to re-think the cabin as a complete FreeCAD project. The basic shape is still created intersecting the extrusions of the three orthogonal profiles, this time created with Inkscape from the blueprint and imported directly into FreeCAD in  svg format.

The cabin is again split into two parts: the upper part and the lower valance.
