    Hi Francois, baie dankie vir die kompliment. As I explained in my original post it all starts with lots of photos, a few dimensions and lots of calculations. I then do as much as possible drilling and bandsawing to remove the bulk of material and create the rough shape. On the Cobra specifically the measuring and filing and sanding x1000 then starts. I have an unfair advantage on the Cobra as I have built 3 Cobra replicas and know every nook and cranny on them. I also did Engineering machining for many years and have well trained eyes for spotting any flaws, visual and dimensional. Oh, and did I mention lots and lots more filing, sanding and polishing.😂. Last but not least it then received a couple of coats with Woodoc furniture wax. Thank you for the interest shown. Regards, Kobie.
    Fyi I attached a photo of my first KCC Cobra replica I built in 1992.

    Brilliant work D-Tox, works of love!

    I did something with wood and a Defender - bookends for my Grandsons Fender books, but not in the same league as yours.

I decide which scale I want ( mostly 1:8 or 1:10 ) and then measure the sizes on the photo and calculate the dimensions to use. The average time spent per model is 100 to 140 hours. Hope you guys enjoy the photos.
    Hi Defender 90, I too started to make wooden toy cars when I went on retirement in Jan, not in the same class as yours in terms of details, I take approx 15 hours to complete them at scale of 1/12, 1/18 or 1/24. herewith a few pics of my efforts, I use hard woods such as ash, maple, walnut, Iroko, blackwood and yellow wood, I have made approx 70 cars to date
