Hello everyone. With HTL and Dutchy making their own models without the use of plans, I thought i should give it a go. This is my version of a 34 Ford Tudor Sedan. I wanted it to sit low and have a Hot Rod feel. The flames and tire/wheels were the parts that most enjoyed. I have some things to work on like more slope to the grill, but she she turned out okay I think. As always all comments are welcome.

All I have to say is that is Bada__! Never thought about using flames that way. What a great idea.

Welcome to the club! I don’t like hot rods but your’s is a exception.

Well done and thanks for sharing.

Are you making a drawing before you start?

BTW I made my own headlights and you can find a how to in the Fordson blog.

I only made a drawing of the body, and then made everything to fit around that.

excellent job on the car. I enjoy making toys only from a picture, Did you get some of idea’s that I posted awhile back on the Woolsey car that I posted awhile back where I outlined the procedure I used, very simple and easy to do. Check out the way I curve the fenders over as they meet the body to make it more realistic. There is such more freedom to be able to make toys without plans. I had bought a Toys and Joys plan once but never built it as I could do it so much simpler myself. You are on the way to some great models.

Out Standing for a tenth try!!!
Really love the radio hadn’t thought of that one. HOW Cool, and a must in any cool rod!!!!
I played with making the 32 chevy and played with a slanted grill and gave up couldn’t get it right maybe next time we’ll figure it out.

Love all your little details to make it your own. Danish oil or something like will make the wood pop with good looks but to all his own.
Just paint it on rub it off and pop goes the great looking wheels.
