1904 Northern Runabout 1/16
Posted by Stinky on Wednesday, April 15, 2020 7:04 AM

I have built a 1904 Northern Runabout in scale 1/16.

It consists of bodywork and some other parts from Shapeways:

Then I have supplemented with parts from the kit Oldsmobile 1904, published by the Aurora company

Hey!

 Now that's a cutie! I always liked the older cars like this. Just think, Cruising along at thirty miles an hour. Omigawd !! that was so fast it must be dangerous! But, one thing that has been lost is the craftsmanship that went into some of them as the years progressed to closed cars! Beautiful Rendition !

Its a nice piece of work! Its amazing that these vehicles started a whole industry that would be so important to transportation in the world! Nice work! Cool Thumbs Up

If you cannot have a good time, what kinda time can you have? JR

Next on the bench:  Another 1970 Hemi 'Cuda, 1958 Chevy Impala, 1987 Buick GNX, 1950 Chevy Pick-up, Indy Reynard, 1965 Corvette, probably not in this order.

Never even heard of a Northern runabout, let alone a model of one in 1/16 scale. Great job on it. Are they metal lamps ?

Because unlike some Robin hoods,I can speak with an english accent...
