      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.

    February 3, 2010 was the begin with this mad project: the construction of a Continental Mark II, scale 1:12, from scratch. Indeed, the project began earlier, gathering as many pictures as I could, buying some books and corresponding with some of the members of the Mark II forum. Feb. 3 was the physical begin: I will do first the rims. Strange choice isn't? there is a reason for that: my previous model, a 1963 Studebaker Avanti is almost ready. I'm doing now the tires for this Avanti and, as expected, there are difficulties. Furthermore, time is needed for the material to cure (about 24 hours) and I hate to wait and do nothing.
    The rims for the Mark II are standard parts (more or less) which have to be done anyway. Then I will do the tires for the Mark II as my notices and experience with the Avanti tires will be helpful.
    I did the same work with the tires for my first model (a 1966 Olds Toronado) but it was for 30 years and the products are no more the same.
    I hope you will enjoy this adventure; you must be patient as progress are never quick.
    Attached are 2 pictures. You may notice that my lathe is very small and the brass part is looking huge for this small machine!

    That's some nice work!

    And forgive me, but I cannot resist an easy pun: Nice Continental kit! (I know it's not a kit but I couldn't help it)

    Hey Stu, can you imagine? Adding a Continental kit to a Continental kit.

    Roger, your work is beautiful. The detail is first rate all the way. Take all the time you want to build this car.
    Sometimes a handful of patience is worth more than a truck load of brains. Have the courage to trust your own beliefs. Don't be swayed by those with louder voices. W.S. Maugham :)
