I love it! The exterior would have been enough but the interior is a knock-out. You should be very proud of this model. I could just see this little guy chugging along in a train of circus vehicles.

(I'd hate to roll over in the morning and nail that counter edge with my forehead, haha.)

This is an amazing model! It's a diorama on wheels. Love the interior details, and the exterior color. Great work!

I am impressed by the work done. I love the station wagon, this one is really nice. It is a work of art.

You should see it in person!!!! Whoa!

Thanks guys for the kind words and input. This was a very enjoyable build and I may just make another similar one but different in function.

Great build! It's fun trying to figure out what kind of person lived in there. :)

Hey guys. A few more items added to finish this one off. Now its really done. Here's some final pictures of the last updates.

 

I made a horn and added it under the overhang of the living quarters.

Some interior items were added including a wet-look towel over the edge of the sink and a smoking pipe...

Made a rolled-up newspaper and put it in the rafters along with the whiskey bottle...

Made a derby hat and for some texture, I sprayed it with automotive undercoating from a distance and added a fabric hatband. Its hanging next to the door. also put in a window sill of matching interior wood.

This was alot of fun and I may make another early circus-type vehicle as a companion to this one.

 

Thanks for your interest.

What I really love about this, in addition to the marvelous conception and execution, is the plausibility.  Yes, the details are extremely well wrought; colors, patina, texture, technique...all masterfully done, but it wouldn't have the same impact but for the believability.  That shows some thoughtful planning.  It's like a story rendered in three dimensions.

Thanks for sharing this with us.

Thank you for the thoughtful words Johann. I really appreciate you posting that.

 

Well, yesterday the carney wagon took first place in the Light Commercial category at Desert Scale Classic right up the road from me as well as taking Best Interior. I was speechless and quite humbled.
