Back when I decided that I needed to get some experience working with basswood I decided to build this in 1/25 scale.

Everything you see is basswood, except the tire which came from my parts box, and the climbing pegs are Evergreen rod. The slide surface is BMF.

The original was in a 1970s Popular Mechanix Magazine.

The entire set of plans was there with dimensions. I just built it in 1/25 scale instead of 1/1. I got the experience and confidence to work in wood. I've done a few things since, but this was the initial project.

Thank you! Just in case there's any doubt it's in scale, here it is next to a '61 Ranchero. :)

Very nice Tom! You could use that in a "Car show in the park" diorama, sitting behind the show cars. Maybe have some picnic tables nearby. BTW, wooden coffee stirrers work well for making tables.
