Found plans for this online. Don’t remember website. Walnut and maple. I don’t paint any models or toys. Finish with beeswax and mineral oil mix.

Welcome to Ljs Ron
Is this car a particular model or is it just a generic 30s car? looks like a boat tail speedster of some model of car.
Looks great.

That is a beauty. I really like the wood you selected to use. Well done.

I have built that model, I got the plans from the “Wood” magazine site. They are still available. http://www.woodmagazine.com/auburn-boattail-speedster-downloadable-plan

Agree with the paint-less group on most toys.

Very neat car. I do like the air brakes too! (suicide doors) Yes, that is what they called them.

I’m with you on the no paint for models. It takes away from the wood look.
This is a very nice model well done.
