      As stated in my presentation, I'm doing since 2 years a Continental Mark II, scale 1:12. Presently, I'm doing the floor; the trunk floor is ready. The next step is going towards the front by doing the floor under the rear seat. To spare metal and unnecessary reworks, I did first a model with cardboard. Now, it will be easier to cut the brass at the proper place.

    That's for sure, Egon! You know, I suppose those wine box are done with pine wood, not very strong either. About 50 years ago, I had to assemble a plane for a kid from the village; there was balsawood and I still have a small sample, I know how easy it's to work with!

    A traditional wood to sculpt in is Lyme / Linden / Bass, its all the same. Klaus ****er, and Grinling Gibbons both used this wood, which remains stable for centuries, and is capable of holding amazing detail! A modern substitute are the various modelling planks, generically known as REN. (at least here in the US) Its advantages are no grain, absolutely detail, stability assured, all the things you want in a pattern making material.

    Make sure there are no termites!

    Yes, red wine from Spain. Very strong, delicious!
    No termites into that wood, however, your remark is justified!
