« Part 5: The Wind Screen Part 6 of Creating the Morgan series no next part

Well, it’s been a great journey and its been a lot of fun to create this wonderful Morgan model.

The materials used are many and varied. Here is a list of woods and their use:
Satin Wood – -primary body fabrication
Walnut – - roof, trim work, radiator vanes, wheel hubs, steering wheel, dashboard dial areas, console shifter, brake
Zebra wood – -seats
Bubinga – - dashboard, door panels, windscreen, a couple of the body lights
African Blackwood – - headlights, mirrors
Purple Heart – - center strip on the hood
Ash – - wheels (tires and rims)

Finish is 3 coats of Rattle Can lacquer. My original intent was to use Watco Danish Oil but I wanted to complete this before going away so lacquer got the nod.

Hope you all like the outcome and that just maybe it will inspire you to give the Morgan a try. Its a terrific plan.

Now, I have a while to decide what is next..

What a great model you made! Very nice. It would be also nice if you post this in the category Projects, then there are many more people who see it. And maybe it will be a TOP 3 listing.

You did a great job on this one.
