 I have a Shopsmith bandsaw equipped with Carter Guides and started this project to compare cutting out these 1.5-inch thick bodies on the scroll saw with cutting them on the bandsaw. So far, my results have been inconclusive.

Cutting on the bandsaw is faster, but not as much as I had expected. The additional speed is offset some by the rougher cut. The rough cut made by the bandsaw requires quite a bit more sanding to get the smooth surface that I like. I'm using construction grade 2x4s for the car bodies, so I don't get a perfect cut on the scrollsaw, it is just better.
