I got looking at the tanker truck and it’s not the one in the picture.
I got it on sale at Grizzly for $4 so will get it’s turn but will take quite a bit a mind games to do what I want so holding off on it right now.
Got the Lincoln at the same time and price and is a very simple build.
I’ve never built an old production car so this could be fun.
Here’s the build picture.
I really wanted and need to change the shop around but once I got figuing on the car the shop changed went out the window for now.
This is another quick build there’s not really much to it but really this is what I’m into right now quick and fun.
The bonnet and roof look to be the only real shaping well and the fender.
Here’s what I got done today and a couple hours yesterday.
Cut out the frame and body parts.
Glued up for the hood.
I still can’t be-leave I made that SS miter gauge to work with my dewalt, I have used it a bunch since I made it and it really has made my life easier.
Cutting the hood at such an odd angle and being so thick, felt better using a clamp to keep it in place while I cut it.
On small stuff like this I much prefer to make it in two cuts[when using the fence], just feels safer to me but with this I wanted a clean edge so the 10” blade and a clamp got it done.
Here I’m sanding the hood which turned out to be quite interesting, but the SS was up to the challenge. lol
The front and back of the hood both had different shaped patterns to follow so it was quite fun getting the SS set up to sand it.
If they would have told what the angle was to do it sure would have made it so much easier.
Its starting to come together.
I can’t be leave I have no pictures of the radiator work.
I used that grove making trick again and also on the seats as you will see.
Got the roof glued up for the next time I get in the shop and also the trunk box.
As you can see I glued it up in strips the hood was done the same way so they should match up I hope.
Here’s the seats I used the grove trick hoping they will look like pleated seats.
This is all cherry but the seats are mahogany.
Sorry Ducky but the tracks will have to wait, I just have no interest in making any at this time.
That’s all folks.
