« Part 232: Toyota 4Runner #7 Wheels Part 233 of Wooden Models series Part 234: Hot Rod Mustang #2 »

Got started on a Mustang build.
I have seen tons of these cut out all the parts from a chunk a wood and glue it all together project plans but I have never tried to build a model this way so found some free plans and an giving this style of model [toy] building a look see.

The plans have marks for the axles so I drilled them out and as I put the thing together am using dowels in these holes to line everything up before I started gluing things up.

The plans tell you it’s best not to sand the parts up as you go but after you glue it up,
but I glued up the center parts and then could sand the seats and dash and a light sand of the roof but will save all the out sides for a good shaping when all is glued up.

One thing I will say, is it takes a large amount of full length lumber to cut it out where I usually can scrap something together out of smaller left over lumber.

It takes a different mind set to build this way but for a toy it would be heavy duty for sure.

Note he also has a lamborghini Miura plan that looks quite interesting, if I hadn’t already had my mind and a friend saying something about a mustang, I would have built the Lamborghini instead..
