These cars are surprisingly difficult to build. The fenders were quite fragile until I had them glued to the body. I broke several of them before I got them all finished. If I make them again they finders will be made from Baltic Birch plywood or shop made plywood. I broke the fenders while sanding.

Getting the holes for the head and tail lights drilled square and true to the front and rear of the car. This is where the horizontal boring featire came in very handy.

To drill the holes I first cut the the blanks square then applied the pattern with the flat bottom of the pattern even with one of the long edges. With the pattern inplace it was easy to mark the locations of the hole using a square and a pencil.

Next I clamped the blank to the Shopsmith table lined up square to the bit, set the depth stop and drill the holes. I your making a batch its best to add somr stops and drill all the same size hole at once. You blanks would all need to be the same size to do this.

I cut these bodies from pine 2x4s but you could glue up some 3/4-inch thick stock to get the right thickness. MDF woul probably work well for the body and it paints much easier than pine.

I purchased the wheels from craftparts.com. While the wheels are strong enough I wasn't to happy with the construction. I ordered just enough wheels to make the cars plus a few spares. I was a good thing that I purchased spares. Several of the wheels had crooked spooks or glue on the outso\ide of the wheels.If I make these again I may not use the spoked wheels or try my hand at making them myself.
