« Part 281: Indy Car Scratch build Part 282 of Wooden Models series Part 283: Indy Car Scratch build glued up rear end and figured out the front »

Getting the feel of how it needs to be.

These parts will be glued one on top of the other so need to have the parts shaped and sanded before they are added.

I usually don’t build models this way but seemed like it will work for this small a project.

Got the back end figured out.
If I knew what I know now I would have had the rear end as part of the frame parts it would have come out much cleaner looking.

Next up need to play a round with the front.

This looks like it might work but it’s time to hit the house.
This all was done over a couple a short days.
This would make a cool race boat with a few changes. lol

Down load the plan and make it any size you want by using the printer menu.
I found the plan by searching google for indy blue print if I remember right.
I based mine off of 2” wheels.
