« Part 12: Rack and luggage, chapter 9 from the plan, trunk. Part 13 of Buick sedan 1932 series Part 14: Fenders, chapter 10 from the plan, last 15 pictures. »

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.

Dutchy, you should call it Pinocchio... turning into a real car

Obvious from the need to use a spanner on it!

In dutch spanner is sleutel, but also a key is called sleutel. And indeed you need a key for a car.

BTW The spanner on the picture is called a ring sleutel

Now I understand why Dutchmen wear clogs… when they open their door with a spanner, they’re worried they might drop the key on their toes…

PS. Those fenders look great!

What are inches? :)

https://www.curezone.org/conversions.asp 0.0787”

If I only would have fractional bits I would use 1/16 in this situation, which is also easy to make with sandpaper.

For myself I have simplified the small sizes:

1/2” 12,7 mm
1/4” 6,35mm
1/8” 3,2mm
1/16 1,6mm
1/32 0,8mm
1/64 0,4mm

All rounded.

I forgot you use the metric system and we had to jack that all up.

Why couldn’t there be just one measurement system across the board. This really messes up some of us simple minded folk. haha

Now for my best crow impersonation, I have found ToolsToday a great source for my one-stop international shopping site… their postage is reasonable so I’m sure that as a local you may even land free shipping.
