The cuts you make in that printer plate are so precise and clean.I have yet to master working with that stuff except for making some small painted brackets.What method dor you use to keep it flat and make those neat corners? The plate I have still has some sort a green finish on it that I can't get off easily.I would love to make a Hallock style windshield for my '21 Olds speedster from it id I can figure how to take down to the bare metal.Oven cleaner won't touch the stuff and sanding leaves it too scratched to work with.Any suggestions?
Without the fruit....doesn't it become just a wagon?If you are building a stock body version you could cover the sides with screen and make it vendor's truck for just about anything like tools.Or how about a completely stock version that could carry a mobile DJ service(?)from the early 1900's and equip it with hand crank Victorias or Edison cylinder photographs.I can guarantee you it would be the only on any display table you put it on!
I personally will vote for an open door on that very cool cargo box.Maybe you could have people vote on this forum for what they would like to see you do.Have everyone that has opinion send you their vote taped to a nice new crisp dollar bill(only kidding of course).Then you count all the votes,announce the results and use the money you got to finish the model however you wanted to in the first place!
This project has very good "bones"as a starting point.I would have paid a dollar for that stuff in a heartbeat.Unfortunately I am always the guy in line behind you when you find stuff like that hoping you will set it down so I can buy it.Always a day late and a dollar short!
Lot of great idea here that could be useful for anyone interested in being more organized.I personally just divided my styrene shape stock into groups by using some 2"I'D BOX pipe cut into 6"lengths.I cut some styrene circles for caps on one end then labeled them "tube","angle","rod",etc.That way they are portable if I decide to work outside on the deck for a while. I organize larger groups of parts and supplies into plastic drawers that are in stackable sets of three from Hobby Lobby.Those are labeled for adhesives,wire,tools,sanding stuff,plain sheet styrene,pattern styrene,etc.That stack of drawers is now over 5 feet tall and saves a lot of time scrounging and sorting through stuff. Stuff on my main workbench is on rotating trays with stacking circular organizers.Those hold individual tools,paint brushes,files,etc.
