I made one of these last year and sold it just before Christmas so I just had to make some more VW Hot Rods. I cut these 2 out back at the end of January and finally got them both finished in March. I used jarrah and tassie oak with some pine dowel for the headlights and exhausts. Used mineral oil/beeswax finish.

These look really good I have also printed plans to make this one at 125%. I haven't got to it yet.

Superb!
 May I ask what type of scrollsaw blade you use to cut these ( fairly thick) hardwoods?

Thank you for the compliments.

Alan - From memory I used a #5 Ultra Reverse (Flying Dutchman) to cut the VW parts. Each of the centre layers was only 12mm thick, I cut them all separately and then glued them together. I cut carefully but they still needed some hand sanding to get them to match up well. The fenders/side wall are 12mm glued to the thinner 6mm piece.

I just received some FD UR #7's & #9's last week so I'm still experimenting to see what they cut best. So far I've got good results with 30mm pine and glued up 2 x 19mm (38mm) pine although I still have to do a fair bit of hand sanding afterwards. I haven't really tried them on thicker hardwoods yet.
