Antique Car – Continued – Making of hood and passenger compartment

Today continues with the production of the vehicle body.

For the vehicle construction, a few parts have to be provided with reinforcements. This makes it much easier to glue different parts later. In addition, the reinforcements help to ensure that the vehicle has the right shape.

The hardest part is definitely when you wrap the engine part and the vehicle cabin. Even if you work very carefully, it can happen that you get unwanted creases in the paper.

To make it a little easier to glue the sheathing and to conceal any kinks, I have added the following two auxiliary parts to the SVG file set:

The elongated cuboid can be glued into the engine area. This gives a little more resistance when gluing the sheathing.

With the second sheathing part you can then smooth the bonnet a bit.

In the next step, the vehicle cabin is then manufactured, which is then glued into the casing.

The next blog post will follow shortly – with the detailed design of the vehicle interior.

Antique Car – Continued – Making Wheels

Today I show you how the wheels of the vintage car are made.

You can watch the video below so that you can follow exactly how the wheels are made

Another hint: Sometimes it is very helpful if you e.g. use a table edge to fold parts. I folded the wheel axles with the help of a table edge, which makes the folds much more precise.

In the photos below you can see how I glue the wheels onto the axle. If you work very precisely, the wheels can turn later – like on a toy car.

This is what the finished lower part of the classic car looks like:

More details will follow soon …

Announcement – Cuttingfile for Antique Car

On August 19, 2022 a really great new cutting file is coming to our shop! This is a cutting template for a large and very detailed classic car!

Antique Car – Coming soon a new Cutting file for Cutting Machines like Cricut, Silhouette, Brother ScanNCut

In the meantime until 19.8. I will also publish some making-of blog posts so that you can follow how such a classic car is gradually being created.
The size of the finished vehicle is as follows: length 26 cm, width 9 cm and a height of 11.5 cm.

The cutting parts can be cut with A4 paper. If you have a very large cutting mat (12×24″) and very large paper, then you could – if you like – also cut the classic car about a third larger!

Below are the first making-of photos – the base plate and the wheels are created
