Hi Paul.
interesting project lovely engine.
If you don't like woodwork just sell the cured slabs.
cheers

Thanks Kim. I actually enjoy woodwork, the problem is it doesn't like me. If it turns out that after three years or so of drying and likewise a three-year increase in my age (definitely into the O.F. era now) that I'm unable to move around 200+ lb slabs of wood, I'll just give them to my Amish friend to do with as he pleases.

Finally time for an update on this project, the background model derelict 1925 Ford Fordor sedan. It's been a hectic summer leaving little time for the modelshop. Why is it when you retire, your life seems to become busier than when you were working full-time, that's not how it is supposed to work! Maybe it's because when you become old and decrepit, even the simplest tasks take longer.  Wink  Anyway, here's a shot of the completed engine, frame, and fender assembly for the derelict Ford. The large rough hole in the floor is to accommodate a tree that has grown up through the car, which will be put in place once the car is complete and in position on the diorama. Final weathering touches will be added at that time to blend it into the environment. Now to continue thinning the body casting and building the destroyed wood roof for the car.

Thanks Russ & Ray. Just for a point of reference, here is a photo of what I started with, the original ERTL car. Note: not my photo. I couldn't find mine, but located this uncredited shot online.

I know, right! I struggled making the decision, should I or shouldn't I attack this beautiful example of die-cast and plastic art... Wink
