1914 Stutz Bearcat. Cocobolo, walnut, butternut, maple, brazilian cherry, bloodwood, some brass, and a bit of copper, and a bit of acrylic for monocle windshield. display board is curly maple and cherry. The wheels were a bit challenging, and as shown in pic3 I broke a couple of spokes when cutting (darn it)! I like cocobolo, and wear a mask when cutting it but still bad for allergies (bummer). The grill and fuel tank, like previous models, is thin copper sheet bonded to maple just like veneer. Headlights are brass tube with inserted dowel rods and wrapped wire. (Forest Street Designs Plan)
Thanks for taking a look, and comments are appreciated.

I dedicated this one to my son, who worked for the US Dept of State Air Wing in Kabul Afghanistan and evacuated the embassy there, and subsequently is now looking for a job (They were terminated after return).
