Experimental WagonRod

Recommended Posts

This one started as an experiment with attempting wood grain. Basically built out of the box except a couple things.

Split the front bumper and shortened the front and rear number mounts to get them a little closer to the body.

Also cut the headlights out and moved the up 0.180", they just look wrong out of the box. 

Criticize the woodgrain please, that's what started this build.

Your wagon turned out great and there is nothing I see wrong with wood grain. COOL build!

It looks good, but that's a lot of work on the headlights, but the woody looks great.

I think your modifications are a huge improvement on this model. The wood grain areas look spot on in my opinion. Great color choices. I think it's a winner.

You've made this look very realistic, not an easy task.  Your work on the grille and wheels, wood grain and raising the headlights all help.

I agree with everyone else on the Headlights. That change alone made this a much better looking and realistic. The only suggestion I could offer on the Wood Graining would be to add some Wood Grain effect to the dark Brown colored portion, just a very little as sometimes less is more if you know what I mean.  Well built.

Thank you all for the positive replies, I was hoping that's how it would go. I have a couple cars I want to build that require some woodgrain, so this car was just an experiment for those.

I completely agree with what has already been said , your modifications helped immensely and the wood grain looks excellent !  Also the solid brown framework does look out of place , it needs some grain in it too !:)
