I'm used to working with metal and fibreglass, i could never ever imagine to get that sort of finish with wood.

I really wish I had the patience and the skill to make something like that

I am more impressed with the level of detail and accuracy of the model with every posting

Love the photos, keep 'em coming! Big Grin

Decided to do some work on fenders to give more look to the car
so shape cut out of pine wood as it is soft, flexible and perfect for the job
[Image: 27042010.jpg]
glued in place
[Image: 27042011.jpg]
and sanded
[Image: 27042012.jpg]
the rest of fenders done as well, looking good, need to shape a bit more when wheels will be in place
[Image: 27042013.jpg]
[Image: 27042014.jpg]

next, will try to make wheels now, center pieces will go in sometime after
[Image: 27042014.jpg]
[Image: 28042011.jpg]
as I don't have lathe wood turning thing improvising with my DREMEL tool, carving is even done without support stand, everything done by free hand in air with very tiny carving tool
[Image: 28042012.jpg]
pay attention to wheel, looking good
[Image: 28042013.jpg]
only 2 turned out well as other two has to be wider and a bit bigger for the back
[Image: 28042014.jpg]

so, tried to come up with chassis that would be similar to real car. It would be easier to make normal one as for all cars, but felt right to make
one as close as possible to real one....this was my first try
rough plan drawn up
[Image: 28042015.jpg]
now, this is what I achieved
[Image: 30042011.jpg]
wasn't happy with it, so destroyed it after 2 days work
this is how first attempt ended
[Image: 08052010.jpg]
so second attempt, printed out best available real chassis 3d guide
[Image: 10052010.jpg]
drawn up to match woodie dmc scale and cut out
[Image: 08052011.jpg]
[Image: 08052012.jpg]
started with this piece of mahogany block
[Image: 08052013.jpg]
center piece done
[Image: 08052014.jpg]
front side part getting ready, few more wood strips glued in for extra strength
[Image: 08052015.jpg]
front done, end parts needs to go on as well
[Image: 09052010.jpg]
rear part of chassis coming together
[Image: 09052011.jpg]
chassis strength parts done, now need to free up some space for it
[Image: 10052011.jpg]
[Image: 10052012.jpg]
once tunnel for chassis made under car body, proceeded further detailing chassis at he rear end
made up middle part and other elements, added wheels to see how it looks together
