Wooden DMC build
Hi to everyone, as a big fan of DMC building one of my first wooden cars in scale of 1:10. This is sort of learning curve project along some other ones.
Hope to update on regular basis.

@ Rich Hanlon - thanks, I started this build in start of last month, it has taken so long coz one of my main tools broke down and I had to order new one, better one for more precise work....and I do another project as well, which is toyota mr2 as I'm fan of them cars as well and I'm an owner of one....and as this build is my first one, it takes time as well to pick up things. It's more like artwork, no rules, just imagination Wink In basics, there should be around 80+ hours involved so far.
@ malcy34 - time machine is cool car, I might modify it with bits from it once this DMC is close to finish line
@ lukebrynycz - thanks, appreciate that Wink

I sold my MR2 Turbo to get this Delorean. It was a sleeper, 420hp/380fp with bootmount IC :wink:

They're amazing cars aint they!

@ Deloreanyorkshire - thanks mate, appreciate that

@ lukebrynycz - geez, 400-hp for mr2 is mad one is n/a, at the moment off the road, trying to raise cash to put it back on. Cool car, love the tbar and turning heads when it passes people in city Wink

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

@ Rich Hanlon - appreciate that mate
@ Chris Williams - a bit of task to put it together Smile it's only 35mm wide and for a first go it looks superb. Only when zoomed with camera you can see more details Big Grin Dials are edited on photoshop, then printed number of times on photo paper to get close enough color and resolution as fine as possible, then glued on tiny wood panel behind it, then everything covered with auto lacquer to give a print and details max protection from fingers and any moisture. Had plastic in front of it, but removed as colors are better without it.
