I took this plan which I bought……
and with the help of the internet I came up with the following……..
Modifications that I make.
I had to redesign a complete other engine to put in because I wanted to put an engine hood on the pickup. Hmmm sounds like I'm an engineer but I actually know nothing about engines.
I wanted to have an engine hood to cover the engine because I want it to look like a Model T Ford. In the above pictures you can see how the T bucket looks with the hood.
I gave the roof an extra "wave" in the middle and rounded the edges off so that it looks like the real thing. I also cover the back opening and cut 2 windows in it.
I decided to put two side lamps also on the T bucket.
This time I made different dashboard and put some 3mm (1/8) dowel in the bulge seats so that it has the effect as if it is buttons on the seat and back.
I also made a suitcase and a barrel for the "Moonshine"
Boy oh boy, this was a job and a half. Each wheel has a tyre, a rim, 16 spokes and a hub. The spokes are toothpicks. What a job to make sure the hubs lined up with the tyres to prevent it from bouncing. Eventually I figured it out after looking at a video on Youtube.
Just when I thought I was finish I get this crazy idea in my head to build a gas pump.
The most difficult part here was to make the nozzle and the decals. Here is the link to make your own decals. https://www.lilblueboo.com/2012/10/packing-tape-image-transfers.html
