For those wondering about my avatar pic, that's the 911 Porsche Turbo woody wagon I built back in 1992.

 

It's just a curbside, mostly Fujimi-based with corrections made to the rear fender openings with help from a Revell slantnose kit. Wish I could remember which kit provided the Dunlop tires, I could use another set for a current unrelated project.......

 

The wood is nothing more than a cut-up magazine photo of the wood in somebody's cherrywood bar. The roof is a narrowed portion of a Monogram '39 Chevy Sedan delivery.

That is awesome! What was your intention, to build it? A real custom perhaps?

I really like what you've done here. The lines just look right .. like the slant of the rear.

911... Woody. Two concepts that just don't go together, BUT somehow you made it look really great. Nice work!

Yes, actually, to entice folks to build a full size one. Alas, the fates have instead been not so generous with me ever since, where the lack of money never allowed me to pursue such ideas. I also thought my BMW Cadillac was a viable full size project (perhaps on a less collectible Caddy coupe with the roof sawed off), along with a full-sized altered Lambo kit car based on my Chrysler 300 / Countach which had its 15 minutes of fame on the cover of Model Car Journal in 1994.

Thanks for the kind words, everyone. Kit-bashing is my middle name, building a pure box stock would be one tough assignment for me.
