« Part 160: New Set A Wheels Part 161 of Toy Construction series Part 162: Starting on the motor for the coupe »

Getting started on another 34 Coupe.
I already built one so have the plans but with this one the only thing I’m using is the shape of the body and have shrunk it down just a tad for a 2 7/8” wheel.
I should also add that the plans for this are only two pages but it’s enough to get er done. [Toys And Joys]
It will be mostly maple cause that’s whats one the shelf.
Will be trying to get this done before the cold is here to stay.

Already had this frame for a truck I just couldn’t get my heart into a couple a months ago, these won’t be the wheels once it’s finished.
Just trying to get a feel for what’s up, and what materials will work.

I chopped the top a little for a meaner look.

Playing with some left over parts for the rear end.

Added mounts for the springs.
I added some dowels to be sure it stays in place.

Trying to get the feel of the frame in the back.

Needs some seats, and steering wheel ,gear shiftier,and brakes

We need some gauges.

Just before I called it a day had to see what the roof wood look like.

Here's the link to my other hot rod.

Sorry #4... still trying to get past the happy snaps of those awesome tyres…

This better be an automatic as those seats look so comfortable the driver is bound to fall asleep.

Well the wheels get my vote too, they certainly hog the attention.

The detail on the internals is something to be admired as well, I don’t know how you get such amazing results.

Makes me think about attempting a model although it would have to be a big one like a Double decker Syd Bus or even an MRAP (I think thats what you call them its a huge mine resistant Russian truck)
That way I may just be able to see all the parts.

Hey I was just checking out BurlyBob’s Project and was thinking some LBD mudflaps on the coupe would be the go. ...snicker snicker!!

This coupe is coming along so beautifully and it will display a lot of fine details and craftsmanship.
