I have just completed another project, a 1932 Buick Sedan. I made if from plans in Sam Martin's book: "Making Toys - Herloom Cars and Trucks in Wood." It is only a pleasure making toys and models when you have such welll documented plans to work from!
I used imbuia, origen pine, oak, silky oak and good quality ply wood.

I am speechless. This is so cool. Could you post a front angle photo like the rear angle you posted? We are dying to see what that looks like.

Thanks for the kind comments! Much appreciated!

John,

I am adding another few photographs showing the front and rear in more detail.

The pin stripe is a wooden inlay which I thought did not come out to badly. The door handles are just small pieces of veneer that I glued to the doors.

These photo's show a few mistakes/disappointments with the project. Whilst sanding I burned the right side front of the chassis. I know that I have to be careful with oak which burns easily, but was caught out with the origen pine. I tried to sand the burn mark out and I thought it was o.k., but it showed up again when I started varnishing the project.

On the left hand side front door you will notice a mark at the bottom of the door. I noticed a light blue sheen when I was preparing the toy for varnishig and I thought that the blueish rag that I was using, had given off some colour on the plywood. I started sanding it and it just got worse until I realised that it was a knot in the second layer of the plywood. I had to live with it as replacing the side at that late stage, was not an option.

Regards

Dolf
