This the 4th generation of the toys I have been developing. Trying now to pay alittle closer attention to details. The lines are from a 1935 international pickup as lumberjock asked to see one of this vintage. By tapering the door section I could have the line under the door show and the box would be inset in to have the top of the box slant out. I improved the shaping of the front fender section to meet the body more realistically. That solved some problems I had with the model A ford. I am happy that I figured out how to make and mount headlights. even tried tailights. The wheels this time I tried stain rather than paint before I machined the center. I am quite happy with the result and hope those that liked the all natural look verses those that liked the paint, like the compromise. The wheels are sprayed with a satin finish so the black is not glossy.Is this the way to Go??? Comments are appreciated. Stay tuned, I think for a 1935 mercedes-benz 500k roadster.

That’s not a toy sir. I went back to look at the others and you do some fantastic work.
