Hi everyone.
I have finally finished a Hill Billy Hot Rod Panel Wagon, that i have been making off and on since i first bought the plan, when it was first released. I have been able to make this model by becoming more confident and learning new skills and tricks that this wonderful hobby teaches you over time.
Its made from Birch, Beech, Pine, Oak and Walnut and apart from adding side indicators, to hide the ends of the windscreen bar, a number plate and sealing the rear door shut, Not that confident yet lol....its straight from the plan.
Its finished with Danish oil, three coats of clear varnish and lots of love....
I hope that you like it and any comments/questions are very welcome....
All the best 
Dave...
