I love longroofs & Woodies are my favorite ones. I'll watch this one. Great choice with the color, yellow really pops next to the woodgrain.

Looks like a cool build. Your palm tree looks like a few of mine after the cold weather we just had.

Cold weather in Florida? Unbelievable! Can remenber 35F° outside Devil's Ear , but 68° F insde Devil's Ear during a cavern dive. That was cold!

Part of the beach scene will be a deck chair. I'm not sure about the cover fabric, so I have to search the internet for some ideas.

I used 2 x 2 mm wooden strip for the chair

Really nice color sense you have, I loove the yellow with the wood. Nice. And also the colors of the tree are spot on!

Here the finished deckchair. I had printed the stripes on tissue, like I usually do this with my mexican blankets.

Based on a technique that Steve Boutte shared in another forum I made this Tuck'n'Roll

Usually I use half round stripes to replicate Tuck'n'Roll. This method I saw the first time in a posting from Steve Boutte. Steve thanks for sharing this technique.

Materials:

Silicon - use your favorite one

Arcyl paint i.e. Schmiecke or Lucas

Tuck'n'Roll tonneau cover i.e. '59 Chevrolet El camino from amt

seat material.jpg

Steps:

Make a mold of the tonneau cover.

Pure some of the archly paint in to the mold

Let it dry

Peel it of the mold

Cut to the size that you need

Modified seat from '49 Mercury from amy

Yellow arcyl Tuck'n'Roll added to the seat

Nice! But I am curious if the tree is scratchbuilt or an aftermarket item? How did you make it?
