Fun and challenging build! This is a Forest Street Designs plan with some additions and modifications. The toothpick wheels got a bit tedious but that goes with being patient with building models. This model has lots of circles! I made the front wheels steerable with the tiller and all the pulleys, flywheel and wheels turn. I turned the flywheel and pulleys in a lathe. I covered the seat with a piece of leather. This was my first Forest Street Design plan and I will do more. Thanks so much for looking.

Excellent! Okay, next should be the 1903 Ford Model A, first production of the newly founded company.
