Have been lurking around here the past couple years but not posting much. Will test the waters with this project
Made a model MG TC plastic car in 1/16 scale and combined my other hobbies by adding real leather seats and real wood dashboards
The dark one is a thin ply ply with a Lee Valley dark exotic veneer; the lighter one is a solid pear cut and carved to shape. My kids chose the lighter one to use.
Made dashes on the bandsaw by copying the plastic one and added aluminum bezels and plastic glass covering the computer printed dials. Seats are wrapped with a chrome tanned leather.
Would love to make real wood steering wheels, maybe next time.
I say test the waters as not everyone is so receptive to combined material projects, out of the normal stuff If you like it great, if not “Don’t look, Ethel!!”
See what I have been up to the last few years!
