Now it’s Glue clamp sand some parts.
Then it’s Glue clamp sand some parts.
Then it’s sand sand sand or if it sounds any better shape shape shape!!!

I don’t feel like I have as much control over the build by doing it this way but it is a first so it may grow on me.

Nice job, looks like it is about 1/8 scale. I like the strip with the wood.

Tony I was the same when I started it, what have I got myself into but with a lot a work it’s looking not to bad but really not my style of model building, more fit for toys me thinks.

I’m curious to see what kind of tires you put on this thing. Cant wait to see the finish. I bet the grain in the wood is really gonna pop.

I like your construction, similar to the models I have made, center section cutouts and then sides, I used much thinner sides, using the colors of wood, will give and interesting finished project, like a fancy paint job. Well done. Worked well with the bucket seat and con cell.

Bushmaster I doubled the plan size to use 3/4 lumber and yes I guess I should have thinned the outsides but went by the plans. [That’s a first for me isn’t it? LOL]
I guess I could take it to the table saw and thin the sides but would mess up the head lights but we’ll have to put the thinking cap on for this, and as I’ve said before not my usual build style.
One of those if you don’t try out different ways of doing things you won’t learn anything new.

Jason the wheels for this will be quite small so not able to add much detail to them, and already have my mind on something else so???

I will be following this build. I had a 1965 289 hi performance fast back and a 1967 fastback in my younger days. Wish I still had them. The 1965 was Vintage Burgundy and the 67 was Midnight Blue. I am sure this will be a super build like all of the rest. Have fun.

I added some lights and wheels and that’s as far as I needed to take this toy project, just not into this way of building models. Sorry
My wheel making jig wouldn’t let me use a 7 1/4 blade to cut the treads so had to use a 10” blade which is way wider than I like for this small a wheel, so have been making a jig that will have height adjustment for all wheels up to 4 3/4”.
