After 3 weeks I eventually finished my 1912 Ford Commercial Roadster. I used the plan set plus the photo to add some extras. Lots of fine details to be dealt with but I did my best. The gas pump was some ideas I fiddled and came up with the one in the picture after a few modifications.

Nice looking!
An interesting side note – Fords of this vintage did not have spare wheels. They had demountable rims that unbolted from the wheels. The tire inner tube would be patched and returned to the tire and put back on the demountable rim.

Looks a very simple vehicle but I’m sure there were many patient hours of craftsmanship put into the model.

I did a search and found the spares both ways.
I like the spokes myself, but I’m a wheel nut. lol
When we read of the road condition in those days you better have what you need cause there ain’t no tire store close by.

Both of these photos appear to be taken at gatherings of restored Model Ts. Restorers sometimes go overboard with their cars. The standard among most car clubs stressing originality is “the car as it left the factory.”

This has little to do with how a modeler may choose to build the model of a car. I was the editor of a national magazine for one of these clubs, so you’ll have to excuse my narrow view.

Thank you Phil32. I am actually a South African but I love these vintage models. I am not very up-to-date with the history of the cars but I like the fact that you stipulate out some points of interest to me.
