1913 Model T Van - introduction

by brae  

You've likely guessed I'm not building anything modern considering my mode of telecommunication and that snazzy wallpaper, so I'll spill some more beans.  This is a 1/16 scale Model T Van by Entex.  There are decidedly fewer parts to the Model T kit than the Datsun, but my summation is there were fewer parts to the real Model T than the real Datsun as well.  :D

The final model will be 9.5 inches long, so it should work well regardless of being a smaller scale than the building.  The kit even has real wood -- they call it micro wood.  I'll be making my own decals as well as a few adjustments here and there.

I even went to the local Volo Auto Museum to have a looksee at their vintage Fords.  This is quite the contraption, no?  Many a Chicago winter would call for such a beast.

I spray painted the rest of the parts today.  Now that I'm far enough along on the building, I can focus on accessories like this.

Ooohh... Now I'm so excited to see it! Just remember, Ford said you could have a model T in any color you liked, so long as it was black. Can't wait to see your build!

Very interesting. Just when I think I've guessed the direction you're going in you do a U turn and I have to guess again. Looking forward to watching this. Please post lots of pics of the vehicle build. I love to see the process =0)

Those winter model-Ts are crazy! Please tell me your house has snow in the yard and on the roof.

That reminds me of the film "Bonnie and Clyde". Can't wait to see the finished product!

It will be an adventure, for sure! &#59;D No snow this time around...I shudder at the thought of keeping it clean. :no:
