1923 Ford 'T' Carny Wagon

This was a fun and different build for me. Its nice once in a while to shift gears and head off into a different direction. I started with the AMT Budweiser '23 'T' Delivery Van, cut off the back of the body and scratch built everything in the living quarters portion. I've got a couple of months into this one and thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. I'll do a bit more weathering eventually.

I can see why you'd be proud of it. I've got the same kit that I haven't been inspired to build. I'll remember your approach if I ever pull this one out.

The detail in this build is fantastic, very much all kinds of things inside it. I always find something more when looking these pictures again and again. But then- there is not too much stuff packed inside it, it's just perfect. I like the color too, fits nicely to this kind of car.

Gentlemen - thanks so much for the kind words. I appreciate them very much.

John - I don't know about that top ten comment but, coming from you, its really a fine compliment and I greatly appreciate your thoughtfulness.

I may drop just a few more details in on this and if I do, I'll post the updates here. Don't worry Niko, I won't overcrowd it. :)

This looks very much like the Truck/Wagons they have at the Carnival Museum! I enjoyed your build of this Carny Wagon. The Details you added to the interior give it a lived in look, and is very well done!

I love it! The exterior would have been enough but the interior is a knock-out. You should be very proud of this model. I could just see this little guy chugging along in a train of circus vehicles.

(I'd hate to roll over in the morning and nail that counter edge with my forehead, haha.)
