« Part 7: Dashparts and fire screen, chapter 4 from the plan. Part 8 of Buick sedan 1932 series Part 9: Cabin sides, chapter 6 from the plan. »

During making the Buick Sedan I have made a lot of pictures and they will be used for this blog about the build process. This blog is mostly made in subdivisions according to the chapters of the building plan, but be aware that this is not the same as the chronological build. When questions are there feel free to ask. If I don’t know the answer there are a lot more LJ members which can and will help you.

There are many ways to build a wooden model and mine isn’t the best. Sometimes I have to redo it more often than I like. It also happens that after something is done I realize that there was a better way. And therefor feel free to comment when you think It can be done different or better.

Very nice result Jan. I would probably use a more plain grained wood for this to enhance the tuck and roll look of the upholstery. Just my personal choice.

I’m using this wood a lot for the seats in my models. In opposite to you I like it for this purpose. But whatever it is, when the car is ready you almost can’t see it anymore.

No matter how many times I see your projects and blogs Dutchy... you never fail to amaze me with your sanding techniques.


I thought that was your take on R2D2… but then I realized that Star Wars is yet to come to Holland.
