A couple of weeks ago I posted the spoke wheel project and announced that they were needed in my new model. And here it is. A classic Buick Sedan from about 1930-35. I used mainly Ash and Imbuia wood, the grill is partly Wenge. The plan is drawn in Fusion 360 from Autodesk. Two of the above pictures are rendered by this program.

A 3D overview can be found in the online Fusion360 viewer. Please note that Fusion360 is a graphics intensive environment that requires a modern browser.

If you are interested in the plan go to my website.

Beautifully done Jan. I love these older models as there were still many around when I was a kid and it does my heart good to see them, or at least their facsimiles. Big smile here my friend!

I forgot to mention that your photography skills are great. Those are very clear pictures. People could learn not only model making but photography.

WOW – Dutchy !! one my most favorite vehicles ever.
mainly because I restored a 1930 model a few years ago.
I think what you have is the 1932 model that had the front mount
spare wheels and travel trunk. AWESOME project !!
[here is my model – I made hickory running boards and sanded the
wood spokes down to natural and sealed all wood with epoxy then
several coats of marine spar varnish. (it took two loving years to restore).

Thanks, but I have to admit that the pictures are made with an old Iphone 5.
