A friend of mine showed me an article in the December 1995 issue of The Practical Wood Working magazine. The article was about the annual competition with the object being a London taxi. The entries and winners were published a few months later and they were of a very standard. The specification called for a scale of 1:8. I decided to build a 1:16 th scale one.

Using  various off-cuts I managed to put the above-mentioned taxi together.

Very nice looking.  love the wood choices.  and like you said, you used cutoffs.  Did you make your own wheels, the spokes look more flat than round.  Excellent!!!

Another great build Dolf.

I would love to be able to build like this.  Did you use a pattern?

Another great project and again a winner in my books.
I can see all kinds of building ideas from your model.
Thanks for sharing.
