Man, I LOVE the old Art-Deco car parts! This one is a bit outside my usual box, and is likely to be quite the challenge...

14X11, just really getting going on it. Wish me luck!

Not huge progress on a very tightly-packed Monday morning, but progress nonetheless...

Thank you, Ann and Harry. I haven't really gotten to the hard part yet, but the morning is young...

Taking shape, though. I actually figure the base to be the most difficult part, which is why I've been putting off attacking it. Time to jump in tho...:crossfingers:

WARNING!! UGLY STAGE! :eek:

Yeah....it'll pretty up as I approach the finish line. I hope.
Still, the base is shaping up, and I've had to modify a couple of tools to get something like the effect I wanted (imperfect, but better). So, I've learned from it at the least!

I appreciate that, Rod, especially at that stage. Now, though, I'm calling it done unless and until I find something else on it to pick at. Which certainly isn't unlikely.

Some pieces just never seem finished, and this is one I could fart around with forever and never really finish. So, I'm walking away for now. Call it done-ish.

Exotic, Matthew , in the sense this is a strikingly different subject but with the same technical excellence .
