« Part 77: Starting on a 1935 Ford #1 Part 78 of Toy Construction series Part 79: 1935 ford Just about there #3 »

Just sand and sand and get er shaped up.
But first gotta get the inside done and finished cause once the tops on you’re not touching it.
So let’s build the benches and steering wheel.

Now the hood and fenders need placing.

Ok, question here… I see where you cut a kerf for the door to separate it from the body at the rear edge of the door. But What about the front edge of the door? No kerf?

Not being “nit-picky” here, just curious, because usually you pay a lot of attention to the details.

It’s like the hand in the comics hey just uses 3 fingers same principle here.
Joe you haven’t been paying attention I don’t pay a lot attention to details unless it interests me and kerfs don’t for some reason only my shrink would understand. lol.

I’m going to come over and put the evil eye on your turnings if you don’t give me a break. lol

Looking at your picture change the label from Kerf here to Kerf easy, and the other one No kerf here? to kerf harder.
It’s one of those things if I can do it and it will come out right I may do it[miter saw]
If I have to do it by hand and have a chance of buggering it up will most likely skip it.
Just my $.02

Nope it pine...

Starting to run out of nice wood and don t want to put any $$$ into this car so thought I would try one out of some pine shelving and 2×4s.

htl couldn’t afFord expensive timber…

Just sand and sand and get er shaped up.

Coming along nicely (and quickly). I’m guessing pine makes the sanding a tad easier..

To tell you the truth for me it makes it harder, the wood is so soft the sander leaves more marks and if there’s anything under the pad it leaves marks and very fine once at that.
With oak once it’s sanded it’s good to go and can stand a little handling and bumping around.

I was hoping to put the Danish on it but will probable need to paint it to hide the scratches.
Plus you can get them plochy spots so,
Will be testing some wood to see.

ralbuck your right this is more on the toy side easy to build and more heavy duty without all the small parts that can break off.

Being a fast build it’s also a fun build.

you certanly are a master toy builder and I enjoy your construction photos. I do have one suggestion that i think y0u may be more happy with the finished project, is to put a solid wedge to the bottom of running boards for the taper of the engine section. Then you do not need the stub axle. This allows you to round the fenders right over, and makes it alittle more realistic. Check out the last one I did again. Just an idea that I found to work well, all the old cars had nice rounded fenders. I do hope you are not offended. Keep those toys coming.
