Dan, your weathering is OUTSTANDING!

I also like what you did with the doors, making them operate and out of brass yet! 8)

Keep us posted!

Nice work on Nellybelle, Dan. I used to watch the Roy Rogers show all the time when I was a kid. Pat Brady ran that tempermental jeep all over the place.

Thanks guys. This is the first time that I've tried scratch building and I like it. I'm having fun puttin her together. I used doll house hinges for the doors, and my fingers always got in the way, and for the hood I used the miniature piano hinge instead of the stupid plastic one. There is a lot of eyeball engineering here. I never did find any real good pictures of what I needed the most, so, if it looked right it was right. :) Dan
