Keep it going Mike. Some more nice craftsmanship, that fender looks pretty complicated to cut out. With some fill it will look bang on.

Wonderful work! The leaf springs look great and the fender looks like it will be awesome.

Thanks, all.

I tried using modelling clay for seat material.  That's it on the lower portion.  The problem is that it shrinks too much as it dries.  I tried making a larger than needed piece, intending to cut it down, but letting it dry on a flat surface caused it to dry unevenly and warp very badly.  So I'm going with the suggested method of cutting down pieces of balsa wood for the back and sides.  The very top will be filled with filler for a single cushion look.

Here, I'm using slabs of balsa as much as possible.

Instructions show a spring simply being attached to the wood dowel.  I added the plastic to look more like a beam.  I wanted to keep the 'vintage kit' look of the model since it lacks a lot of today's detail.

And she's up on all fours! Wheels are straight, measures evenly, stance is good and it doesn't wobble - Wow!

While going through some of the many little unmarked boxes in my hobby area, I came across some old castmetal headlights, running lights and steering wheel from an old scrapped model.

Thanks again for your comments.
Mike

Mike some great stuff for future builds is modelling foam, found in Michelle's. The lowrider crowd uses it for their tucked interiors. Man it looks convincing.

This is really coming together man.

Curt, thanks for the tip.  I'll check that out.

The skirting material they show is a flat piece from the body to the running board.  On the actual car they curve downwards, so I bent some up from sheet metal.

I made the front fenders according to the blueprint, but they just don't mate up well to the frame.  So I decided to make the fender and running board together and add the inner fender metal afterwards.

Fenders on one side. Just have to finish the inner skirting for the front fender.

And continuing on the seats.
