Hi... I am new to the Forum. I see a lot of assemblies with incredible details, that make me shy to show my things. Nevertheless, I would really like know what you think about car models in wood which are assembled in a similar way. Just the thickness and weakness of the material make some limitations ... Here some photos of one of my projects: a Ford Model A Coupe' Deluxe, 1930. Made entirely in Balsawood #1mm in scale 1:20 ... still struggling if I should finish it with a thin layer of natural olive oil. The model is made with lasercutter and can be reproduced. Assembling and finishing by hand... it gives each model a little different character (so far this is what I have seen until now, building some ...)
I am Andreas and passioned about modelism, especially cars. But I am trying to build up a collection of cars - for now classic Ford models - in scale 1:20 made out of #1mm Balsawood (mainly). No idea if for real guru's of model car builders like you this is an option to appreciate, or just a funny alternative ... Will post some pics later and wait for your appreciate reaction ...
