Thanks for the kind words guys. I really appreciate your feedback and input.

A couple of shots of the finished taillights. My camera is giving me fits later because its not wanting to focus in macro mode. I can get it to work properly once in a while. Maybe time for a new one although this one has served me so well.

Five items on my to-do/complete list so this one is close to being wrapped up. Thanks for continued interest.

A few more interior items added, most obvious is the guitar. Also added are soap dish, fruit bowl and full coffee cup. Still need to add something on top of the bed. Made an open book but just doesn't make my socks roll up and down.

Interior is just about complete. Oh, one thing I didn't post a pic of is the whiskey bottle in the rafters.

Thanks for following along on this fun journey.

Holy smokes! Just came across this build tonight. Excellent scratchbuilding skills. Awesome subject matter. Much better than a run of the mill muscle car or street rod. Great pics too.

Where are you getting your ideas for all your detail ? Do you have a real one in your back yard ? Following plans ? Not sure if you ever mentioned or not. Whatever the case it is one beautifully detailed model.

No, I don't have one in the backyard. Wish I did. The guitar is scratch built from bass wood and the neck was made separately from the body. The neck details were drawn on with a Micron marker by hand and I used RB Motion bolt heads for the tuner pegs. The banana was also made from bass wood, the apple is a turned piece of red plastic sprue and the bar of soap was cut from a semi-transparent piece from an orange ball point pen. The soap dish was a clear head light lens that was thinned down to make it more resemble a plate. I may redo the apple though as it doesn't have the right shape or color.

Thanks guys.

Ha!! See why I want to redo it? I can't have an out-of-scale salmon egg.

Well gents, this one is complete. I may add a horn under the hood if I can source one. As my rotten luck would have it, my camera went on the fritz yesterday and its not able to focus. I'll borrow the wife's tomorrow and get some pics up. A few here and then a new thread in the Under Glass section.

I'll finally be able to clean off my workbench. There's so many scraps of wood, aluminum pieces, basswood siding, cut tree limbs, printing plate, etc in piles every where.

Thanks for your interest and following along. I had a blast building this one. Now pack to my '41 Willys PU gasser. Actually, I started on this build because I couldn't find my seat belt material for the Willys and found it about a week into this build but I was on a roll with this carny wagon, I had to strike while the iron was hot.

I was able to squeeze one decent picture out of my failing camera. It was taken from across the room and zoomed in all the way. I even fully charged the battery hoping that would help.

As you can tell, I added dual rear wheels based on input from a few of you. Thanks for that as it really made it more feasible.

Thanks for the kind words Alan. They're greatly appreciated.

The camera issues continue so I pulled the Willys out of the box and started messing with it. First thing, the working steering was glued up tight. So it had to all come apart and be glued back together properly. That's enough of that. My camera is going in for repairs and my wife's comes back Wednesday from repairs. Must be something in the air around here for both of them to mess up. I'll get some finished pictures up soon.

Stellar job, Brad. So much fun stuff in this project it's hard to stop looking.

I'll bet there's more than on member on the MCM forum thinking about building an old wagon of some sort after seeing this beauty.
