Hi Everyone

Finished off the Fabulous Fifties collection on the weekend. 

Both of these I modified slightly again to allow the windscreens to be cur out.

Here is the Jag.
Couple of different timbers this time. Poplar for the lighter wood, Australian Hardwood for the thin sides that go up the side of the windscreen and New Guinea Rosewood for the Guards and then Poplar again for the stripes on the sides.
The grill was interesting, this is out of Tassie Blackwood, first time for a compound cut for me, thought it might break, but worked out ok.

Then we have the Porsche Roadster.

Poplar again for the internal lighter timber, then Coachwood for the internal guards and Tassie Blackwood for the outer guards. Poplar again for the stripes on the sides.

Great collection of 50's cars.  Love the wood choices and the modification to open the windshield.  You did great on the compound cut.

This is an artistic combination of woods. I love them! They look like museum pieces.
