Great job on the Model-T, the dry brushing really brings out the detail on the fenders and running board.

I bet everybody will weigh in with an opinion on Sonny... bob tail v. full tail. If it were me I'd maybe sculpt one from putty, but if you like the look you should stick with it.

What did you use for the radiator and lights?

The tarnished brass looks good!

For the tail they make a product called green stuff that remains pliable so it doesn't break off. I like pooch with the bob tail.

Thanks again for the comments. I tried a few times to make a tail and finially gave up. Sorry Sonny.

As far as the paint goes it was just dumb luck.I didn't shake the rattle can enough so the paint pulled way from any high spot. I figured I would give it a second coat but as it dried it started to look pretty good. Sometimes it's good to be lucky. As for the brass, it is copper paint drybrushed over the black. I didn't want to use brass because I felt it would be to bright.

I have another Model T that I will do next now that I figured them out.

Roland - the "T" came good so far....I like "just needs dirt under it!" LOL!!!
About Sonny's tail: I think maybe he wouldn't mind having a short tail. Reason being,
he thinks the flag on his tail would be too much to manage. He's going for
a grooming soon, so it wont matter much...;-)
Looking forward to the outcome.

Working on the second Model T. Since I really suck at trying to paint metal or plastic to look like wood I made a wood body and eliminated the problem. This one will be a handymans vehicle called Al the Handyman. In real life Al is a very good friend of mine who happens to have 10 thumbs when it comes to doing anything. Also he has a real fear of heights. In his own words "I get a nosebleed standing on a piece of paper" so at least one ladder will included. Al also has a great sense of humor and got a good laugh when I told him what I was up to.

Back when I finish it.

Hi. Here is a photo of the almost finished Model T. Just a few more details to add.

The second photo is of both together with a new and improved Sonny (he has a tail).
