Thanks!

I've been using those 3.5" disk boxes for parts every since I stopped having a 3.5" disk drive. It just seemed to be a good use of them.

Thanks! Background: I tried to sell this off for 2+ years and got tired of looking at it, so while I was working on some other projects, I got a few ideas to finish it off.

Think it's also an old Walther kit car for a crane tender or something of that class.

It'll be something else when I'd done with it,

mwbpequod,
I enjoy lurking from time to time here following along with these cool wood kit builds.

There's something cool (challenging) about building a wood kit with cast/brass casting one just doesn't get with an all plastic kit.

I've built over the years something around 2 dozen kit cars and still have another 10 left. I believe I've posted several builds somewhere on this forum in the last few years.

Your skills are really good and I find myself always interested in each car you build.

Thank you for sharing and keep up the great works Martin.
Thanx Thom...

Sometimes the value of the fun you have building the model is greater than what you can get selling it.

Possibly true, but I had so many "projects" stacked up that I just thought to thin the herd and apply the income toward more parts to finish the rest of the herd. Best laid plans of mice.....

A little work on the "structure" end of car. New ends, a door, end overhand bits added to roof, some trim, and corners added...milled out the ends to accept Kadee coupler boxes, too.
