Just finished this Rocking Car for a little girl made mainly from plywood and the smaller pieces from the scrap box. I had great fun making this one as there are no plans just made it up as I went along

Looks like a lot of work went into this project. If Elvis were around, he would want it. Nice job.

G’Day Derek,
That’s on top rocker which you’ve built.
Brilliant paint work and detailing.
Was the build modeled on any one particular car model??
First class project, sir.

That is fantastic! It’s going to make a little girl very happy. Also her daughters and granddaughters. A true family heirloom.

Thank you all

bigogre no special treatment to get the shine just straight from the tin.

Peter it is very loosely based on a MG car

Awesome rocker! Like the cool design and the finish looks amazingly smooth and shiny. Very lucky little girl to have it.
