    You can make anything.  Time and patience my friend...and a ton of filler!

    My five year old is never a problem.  She can't wait to start model making.  Any suggestions on a good model to start with? 
    We have no cats!

    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.

    I think this is exceptionally well done.  I think your engine compartment could serve as a reference for the rest of us.

    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 completed rear seat.  I  am very happy with the appearance of this piece.

    Thanks Charlie, both for the compliments and the concern . Amelia is supposed to be back to school today but they had a weather related cancelation.  I want that for work!

    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.

    After test fitting the body I realized that I would have to move the seats back. .A bit more paint and carpet flocking should finish it up.

    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.

    That is a build I would have been proud of had it taken me a month to build!

    Two sick daughters with one in the hospital derailed me again but I have made a lot of progress.  I still have to trim the rear fenders and complete the rear seat but it is coming together.

    Kia? No loss there IMHO. An Airflow would be cool though.

    I like what I'm seeing here. It will be interesting.  Very subtle.

    This is truly amazing work. This is the diorama I wish I had the skills to build.
