This is a model that I made for a friend.
It is made from plywood that has been kerf cut to wrap.
The molding on the edge between the roof and side is 1/4” aluminum that I cut and bent to shape.
All other “Chrome” is painted wood.

No plans were used.

Looks cool. Screwed with my eyes a bit tho, I thought you’d built a full size one for a bit until I blew the pics up for a closer look. Still a neat little project tho. Congratulations

I’m looking thinking which is what, and then I noticed the drill bits hanging behind the left one.

Thanks everyone.
It is meaningful praise coming from fellow woodworkers like yourselves.

The license plate is made from an online photo that I manipulated in Photoshop and then printed to size on a waterslide decal using Lazertram Waterslide decal paper on my inkjet printer, mounted on a white piece of wood, then sprayed with lacquer.
