I had some issues with the steering wheel dashboard interface. You can probably see in this photo that I'm not yet there 100% but i think i have a solution. Here's the photo of the car mock-up. Glass and interior are the next pieces to be installed.
Progress is slow but I am getting there. I am almost done with the last few tidbits for the interior then I can wrap up that part of the model. Tomorrow I plan to install the windows, dash and the steering wheel. Then at long last I can attach the body to the chassis.
This is really pretty. Great choice for the colors. I built one of these when I was a teenager and after looking at yours I have a desire to take another crack at one. Thanks for the memories and for posting this beautiful model.
The rear seat is complete ant the first coat of paint has been applied. Lots of detail painting to do but this is a big step done. The front carpet has been reapplied and touched up. Probably not necessary as it will be largely invisible but I will know that it's there.
I am now at the point in this build that I consider the desert. One detail I have been looking forward to building the most is the rear seat and radio consol. This is an aspect of the car that really set it apart from many other Duesenbergs that I have seen. Here it is in mock-up form. I have set a new goal for myself. Finish the car before I reach one year since I initially posted this topic. Wish me well on that as this one seems pretty happy being all apart.
