You definitely nailed the look with the wood and all of the trim work . The roof rack is pretty impressive as is the entire build , great work !

You're the "Wagon Master". Not only you build fantastic Longroofs, actually many of them are a result of a hard conversion rather than a ready resin body. Really nice work here with all of the scratchbuilding and it paid off. This looks like real car. Excellent job.

Fantastic build! I have to imagine that if Cadillac had built a wagon back in the '50's it would have looked just like this. Outstanding work!
