Toy Cars

After quite a few nice plane models I started to create car models. The first one is this 1969 Ford Mustang.

VW Beetle

The VW Beetle is one the best selling cars in the world. Over 21 million cars were built by the German manufacturer Volkswagen. It's streamline shape, the air cooled engine with the distinctive sound and the trunk in the front are the most noticeable features.

1944 Willys MB

The forefather of the Jeep is the Willys MB. Developed in the 1940s this 4x4-truck was supposed to be small, relatively cheap and produced in large quantities. The soldiers loved the vehicle for it's endurance and agility.

This tiny model, made from seven layers of plywood sports the distinctive features like the nine-slot steel grille, the spare tire and the gasoline canister mounted on the back. I decided against adding more details (like the steering wheel) because it would have resulted in to fragile elements. The glue-up is still a little tricky, but the parts are cut real fast.

Fiat Nuova 500

The Fiat Nuova Cinquecento (500) was built from 1957 through 1975. The 500 derives from the cubic capacity and the first version had 13,5 horse power which propelled the vehicle to a maximum speed of a blazing 50 miles per hour. Probably easy fast enough for traffic jam in Rome.

Unimog 406

Looking for another model to feature my super-cool rotary engraved tires I came across the classic Mercedes Benz Unimog. The multi-purpose 4x4 truck was developed in 1945 and the 406-series started 1963. The name is an abbreviation of Universal-Motor-Gerät.

Porsche 911

This is the car that stands for the German car manufacturer Porsche. The nine-eleven or "Neun-Elfer" is the epitome of German "Ingenieurskunst" with a rear-mounted six cylinder boxer engine and a legendary durability. It made it on the 5th place of the Car of the Century.

MonsterTruck

With all my models I have a maximum simplicity in mind. But sometimes a single detail gives this little extra cnc-ish flavour. In this case the tires are engraved to get the cool thread that is a main feature on monster trucks.

Toy Motorcycle

BMW 1200 GS

I got an application for making another simplified layered model. This time a motorcycle of the Bavarian manufacturer BMW. The 1200 GS is a pretty big offroad machine with – as the name suggests – 1200 ccm in a two cylinder boxer motor. Actually I had a predecessor of the bike and I really liked it.
