Carving

90 minutes

First step is to carve all parts.
I used one sheet of multiplex plywood in this case it was 600 × 300 mm and had a thickness of 12 mm. If the material is thicker you get a wider car.
All parts are carved on one plate.

Finishing

20 minutes

This step is the most intense. If you are worked precise before it will be easier.
You have to sand everything i started with 120 grid and ended be 320.
You can sound the edges if you like.

At the end I coded my car with furniture wax.

The other car you can see in the picture got some patina before by using chalk paint.
