It has been a while but I have finally finished this pair of 1930 Model A roadsters.
Main body is New Zealand Kauri, dark timber is Walnut. The white timber is Holly and cherry is used for luggage rack and under body engine detail.
Tyers are ebonized mahogany as is the folded roof.
All dowels are made by me using a router as detailed in one of my previous blogs.

A beautiful model, as we are used from you. Great wood combinations and a lot of small detail. Wheels with a lot of work. Well done Peter.

Whose plans you used?

Hey PJ, you didn’t say much in the blog and “mushroomed” even more in the past, but you certainly make up for it with quality...

Not having a go at our Kiwi protagonists…

but a mirror in between would have been easier than a second model… and less material. Lucky you left out the number plates or you’d be screwed.

Absolutely fantastic.

The wheels are great as well as all the other details.

Did you make it from a plan or just your own design.

You do such beautiful work. Your attention to detail makes your models come alive. They both look like they should be in a museum next to the real roadsters. Outstanding!! Thanks for sharing
