« Part 171: Building a VW Bus Part 172 of Toy Construction series Part 173: Building a VW Bus #3 Rounding out the front »

Cut out the sides and made up the front but really doesn’t look like much work, but you got to start somewhere.

Beaut progression #4. Did you cut those great contour matching front curved parts out of the same piece of timber?

PS. After looking at the alignment of the front with the sides, made me realise why they used to call the Germans ”[square heads]”.... DOH! Then I realised that you and Dutchy were the master of sanding back to shape.

Phew! With your rate of progress I was wondering how on earth you had time to find the right shaped grain pattern… let alone follow it closely on your scroll saw.

Unfortunately that makes you fall 1 point in my hero ranking!... sorry… I had put up without tracks in the past but there is a limit… two pieces of timber… shucks!
