One of a collection of free toy car plans available from WoodworkingDownUnder.com
For anyone who may be interested, here is a blog entry on how it was made.
The body is made up of a 12mm maple sandwich with 19mm pine being the “bread” The fenders are recycled from a barbecue, not sure what it is.
Homemade wheels painted with food coloring, made black by mixing all the colors together – a trick I learned in art school quite by accident.
Notice how the grain in the pine forms a vee in the front, inspired by the late great James Krenov.
The flutes or fluting to represent the flames were made with a 13mm drill somewhat in the manner of the Kreg pocket drill jig.
