The time stamp on the photos is incorrect. Every time I change batteries the ###@^&6$98879!


I finished the third of four of the Deusenberg models I was doing. I did some modifications but they are subtle. I have three or four more coats of lacquer to add along with license plates, mirrors, horns and a base. The interior is nice. It has ruffled seats, inside door latches, mother-of-pearl gear shift knob and brake lever handles. The dash has detailed gauges and there is even a carpet with a hump down the center for the drive-train.

I’m pretty happy with this one.

woods are maple, oak, walnut, cherry, wenge, chechem, chakte'kok', myrtlewood, purple heart and holly. The spokes are toothpicks.

The fourth and last is made of mostly dark wood,like wenge, ziricote and ebony along with Brazilian Rosewood. I’m about two weeks away from completion.

I am deeply impressed. Wish I could have one, or, two of those models. You do fantastic work!

Thanks, Folks. When I began my hands/joints were not doing so great. I didn't think I could do it so began four cars..to get two. One was for my wife. I wound up with four and two more bodies should I want to go further. I will but now right away.

Two of these will end up being sold, probably at an auction for Deusenberg-Cord-Auburn autos/parts. Not sure what to ask so I'll leave it to them. This project was to keep my hands flexible during a very aggressive hostile. It worked. My fingers look like kohlrabi but they work.

Thanks again. I'm pretty happy with these.
