    My M-n-L gave me this old wooden model kit that at Christmas, I think she picked up at a garage sale sometime. She said she had it stored for years. She knows I build models so she figured it would interest me. It did! They show it to be all stained and varnished, but I couldn’t do that. I had to make it much more detailed.

    I hadn’t either. I had the other little wooden sprint car you can see beside it, but I bought it already built at a swap meet years ago. I don’t think it was a kit.
    At first I wasn’t too excited about working with the wood. Once I got started though, it was a fun build.

    Thank you sir.

    Nice job, it does look like a cool project. I’ve never seen wooden model car kits my dad used to build them from scratch I have a car and a rack body truck a pick-up with a row boat on a trailer he built. Those I will always treasure

    These are sweet! I made a perfect replica of my car and its mods from 5-6 Shelby 1:18 cars, mixture of GT500, Shelby GT, GT-H, GT, Bullitt and Boss models. I'll post up a pic

    That’s funny your 1/1 looks more of satin type finish and your model is really shiny. My 1/1 is really shiny and my model came out satin finish.
    Just an observation.

    My Dad had one of these kits, it used to sit in his work shop waiting to be fixed because one of us kids broke it.
