How much does it cost to build a Paradox?

When building my Paradox I used only the best materials, including high quality plywood and bronze fittings for the rudder. The table below does not account for hidden or incidental costs such as those incurred by using the car for frequent visits to suppliers of materials, telephone calls and correspondence.
