Body is made from MDF and painted with Home Depot Oops paint and an air brush. This was my firs try at making toys with MDF. I might use up what I have but I don’t know that I’ll ever use it again. The dust was terrible and this stuff soaks up paint like a sponge. That said with a lot of sanding it came out pretty good.

Very nice toy and colour. You are right, MDF is very dusty when treated with maschines.

I do not use mdf; if I can help it.

Nice design on the street rod. Neat toy.

Making toys can become an addiction. Great use for a lot of scrap material too.

That’s a great looking street rod! I’m sure the kids will love it!

By the way, I haven’t tried this yet, but maybe seal the MDF with a sealcoat of shellac before painting?
