Granddaughter Emma will be 4 in a few days and had been asking for a car for her dolls, that she'd seen in the local supermarket. We didn't want to buy a plastic one, so I had a look through my plan collection and came up with a modified '69 Mustang, from John's Muscle Car Silhouettes series.
It had to be open topped and extra legroom was needed, so I moved the seats back and increased the space under the dash.
I wasn't happy with the screen, as first built, so I added a bit of reinforcement, as seen in the last picture.
I'm still not getting the quality of finish I'd like, need to spend more time on sanding and prep!

Thanks for the kind comments.
Clint, to answer your question, I would like to achieve the flawless paint finish I see here on other folks' toys, removing grain and joint lines. I never do enough final sanding, due to both lack of patience and not leaving myself time!
As this was a birthday present, we were looking for a good box to pack it in, so I decided to make one, then thought it may as well be part of the toy, so I turned it into a simple garage.
