Hey Team, this is the estate wagon that will be the companion plan set with the 1940 farm pickup. It uses all the same parts as the pickup except for the woody sides and top. These pieces fit onto the chassis in exactly the same place as the farm pickup cab sides. The two plan sets will be offered at $12.50 during launch ($24.95 regular retail). Feedback is greatly appreciated.

Absolutely great! I will have to put this on my list for sure. 

I love the 1940s cars. This one looks like the original woody.

Did you use the same technique for the running board you used for the farm pickup?

Yes, this will be a winner!

John am I correct the dowel pin on left rear fender interacts with a tailgate on this vehicle? This looks like an attractive vehicle with a non complicated assembly for a nice build completion.

I don't think it's a pin for the tailgate it looks to me more like a gas cap. I would think the pins for that would be behind the finders.

But it would be really nice if the tailgate did rotate down.

The tailgate rotates down and the dowel on the side of the rear fender is the gas cap. Thanks to all of you for your feedback. Keep the ideas coming!

The running boards are identical in construction to the farm pickup.

How long will we have to wait for these wonderful plans? These might be the best looking prototypes you've done so far. Thank, Jon.

Thanks to all of you for your comments on the Estate Wagon. We are creating the plan set now and hope to have it ready to publish sometime in early November. Stay tuned.

As this is the same size as the jamboree, how difficult would it be to add the tow hitch. It might look cool with a hotrod in tow.
