Hi Everyone

Another Small World VW Convertable enlarged to 200%.

Timbers are Silky Oak for the middle pieces, then Poplar, then New Guinea Rosewood and Poplar for the Guards.

Finished with Howard's Butcher Block conditioner.

The winter must be ending for you - glad to see you back in the shop.  I really like this size. But I like the small version too.

Hi Rod T! What method do you use to scale the designs?

Thanks for the positive comments everyone.

Jason, I printed the plans out at 200% on my printer and then made templates out of 3mm MDF to trace around onto the timber. Basically only 3 templates needed.
The centre pieces I trimmed the windscreen off.

Here is a pic of the templates that I made.

another cool build Rod T.

I like the fact that the plans allow for scaling different sizes. It changes the whole toy in cool ways as it grows up in size
