This model is made from a T and J pattern, which I got from my friend Dee1.

It’s about 30 cm (12”) and made from three basic wood species, Meranti, Cherry and Ash. The roof is made from Mahogany, A mistake. It was my intension to make the roof Meranti also, but I selected accidentally Mahogany for it.

Not a difficult build with the exception of the spoke wheels. This was my first time I made spoke wheels, and I had to made some extra.

The finish is a spray lacquer.

Thanks for watching.

Way up there on the cute meter!!!
The white spokes are a nice touch, help you to be able to see them other wise they would be invisible.
Love the zebra wood bench seat, at least I think it is, and the foot pads is a cool detail.

Thanks, I was a bit disapointed about the roof. On the photo you can’t see it that much, but the roof is almost the same color as the cabin.

Thanks Dee. If it looks better than yours is subjective, and I don’t agree with it.

Very nice build, I have to try and make spoke wheels on my next old model. Saw a number of Model T’s, at a museum in Hood River Oregon this summer. Took pictures of a number of old cars as I only build from pictures.
