This was a very nice build, the curves and flow of the pattern were a real joy to work with and produce a nice vehicle. The woods are Spruce,Cherry and Oak for the accent pieces while the finish is 3 coats of Rust-Oleum Crystal Clear Enamel Spray. I originally made the rear air scoop as per the plan but I felt the 1/8" material was a bit fragile so I changed to 1/4" Oak and made my own version with the help of my Spindle Sander and my imagination to come up with the version presented. I hope Osni is fine with my change to this part. The build took me a month to complete in spare time but I feel if I had stayed at it it would be done in 3 days of my Hobby time. Enjoy my build,Thanks vw4.jpg  vw1_opt.jpg  vw2_opt.jpg
