Hi All
My attempt at Bob's plans, I made one of each.
Both airbrushed (that's a learning curve also).
Only managed to get photos of coupe as 2 year old Grandson claimed the other.

My challenge to myself was to make everything, meaning wheels and axles.
I think if I make again would probably make one long axle instead.
Making the wheels was fun!!!

Welcome, SkyBlu63.

Not a bad start, that is nicely finished.
Kudos to you for the wheels too, way to fiddly for this little black duck.

You have really created a personality toy with the colors and finish. What a pro example!

Thank you all for kind replies.

I don't know about anyone else but I do think painted wins over unpainted .

Question does anyone make there own axles and if so how , thanks.

You could buy or make a dowel plate to make your own axles with. I haven't done smaller sizes but I have dowel makers from Vertias for 3/8" and 1/2". They are like giant pencil sharpeners. The smaller sizes are holes drilled in a metal plate that you hammer a stick through to round it off.
