The body generally was made from brass sheet and brass rod. I found these easy to work with and to soft solder together. The window framing is from suitable sized wood strips. The roof is cut out of polystyrene, filed/sanded
and covered with fabric using PVA glue.
The radiator is wood, with fine brass mesh for the core.
The bonnet louvers are represented in the following way. Pairs of holes were drilled at the top and bottom of each louver. Thin wire ‘staples’ were fed through the holes their ends bent over on the inside. Filler
was then applied around the edges of the wires. This was sanded, once set, to form an even fillet shape.
The wheel rims, hubcaps, door handles and radiator cap were chrome plated.
