The model T ford was another competition in the Practical Wood Working magazine of  June 1989. Entrants could choose the model they preferred.  I decided to build the Tradesman's Van. I used a scale of 1:16. The following are photographs of my efforts, which are no where near the extremely high standards set by the entries received and published in the magazine.

Another great job.  Was the curved roof hard to do?  I really like all the little details, engine crank, floating bench seat, recessed radiator......   AWESOME.  Do you just make these from the magazine pictures or are you using a pattern?

A very nice model indeed. I have been looking at plans for making the spoked wheels

Very nicely done. Curious did you texture the radiator? or put some sort of screen in the finish??

Thanks for the kind comments.

To answer a few questions:

The roof was a bit of a challenge. I got it right with my second attempt. The drawings were not very detailed.

The requirements/specifications were published in the magazine that I mentioned. Drawings with dimensions, focusing mainly on the chassis, engine and below deck were published in the magazine. Henry Ford wanted to build a basic vehicle which all could afford.  To achieve this and to simplify  the production process, all model T fords would be built using the same chassis, engine and wheels and his  motto was: " Any colour as long as it is black."

 It was left over to the entrants to the competition  to decide on a specific model which required some research on their part.

Yes, I  inserted a brass screen into the grill.

The spoked wheels design actually comes from Lloyd ( See his posts on the making of the 1907 Rolls Royce). I found his way of making spoked wheels  much easier than using tooth picks.
