I wanted to let you know I experimented with the 1957 Corvette Roadster yesterday on a test build.
I am excited about it, because it was fun and easy to build, and made for a real heavy solid toy, I think will be great for kids that play tough with their toys.
Photos below are just quick shots, and I will take better photos later when I have a good product.
I wanted to stack cut the parts so I changed the middle three part 2's to 1/2" instead of the 3/4" the plan called for. Also, I added the wind shield part 3 to the part 2 and cut them all out together. This made for only two cuts and done.
When we want to paint the cars we will cut the wind shield off the car, paint it and then attach it back, that way we will have a nice matching cut line.
I am hoping to cut and paint several of the cars today, just to see how this plan looks painted. Looking forward to working on the other Corvette sets.
Note: I did get some burn marks on the outside fender parts. Going to fast I think.
I realized later, if I am going to change the body parts, I could have cut them out of 1 1-1/2" piece instead of 3 1/2" pieces. That is the way it goes at the FuzzyDuck Shop, I do first and think and fix later.
On the test model I just glued the steering wheel to the dash. On the next ones I will drill a hole to mount the peg to the dash, which should make these parts stronger.
Like I said above, this is a quick easy build and I think it will be a great seller. It is cool because we can add the other sets to this one and it will make a great display at Craft Shows.
Nice plan set John and Cynthia.
This was finished with just the beeswax/Mineral Oil Paste Wax.
Let me know what you think. Thanks
